    Groupbuy is a GO GO GO we got over 25 orders with the sentra forum: http://allsentra.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=9395
    order your kit using this code: R8TacomaWorld25
    25% off your kit!! place your order and when the 25 orders are in they will ship out.


    Got a reply from andrew The Retrofit Source and round 8 is a go, I will also link this with the 4runner forums who is showing interest there as well so we can get orders faster.

    TRS website: The story behind The Retrofit Source Inc
    toyota-4runner.org link 4runnergroupbuy

    here's the basic if we want to get this round 8 going.

    -stage III OR stage IV complete kits
    -no CBI's/SVS discount
    -25 orders = 25% off
    -ships when 25 orders are completed
    -discount code will be posted once 4runner and tacomaworld forum has listed 25 people committing to buy

    info posted by buzzardsgottaeat
    A lot of people get the mini (H1 or D2S) because they're easiest to install

    FX-Rs are better quality but require free hand cutting of your light housing and a slightly more difficult aiming/securing process.

    Blazers are for fogs, you have to cut/rig it up custom, no plug n play or bake n reseal there.

    H4 headlights
    H10 fogs (H11 for 2012s) are the sizes you need and the harness will be the H4/9003 iirc

    H1 has been deemed a little brighter while D2S more even output. Most go with the H1 simply because its brighter but don't consider other factors. Matt and the guys at TRS mostly favor the D2S and I also like to point out that the larger shrouds fill our headlights better than the mini H1 and there is a greater selection.

    3000k is yellowish and good for fogs for its ability to cut through adverse weather

    4300k is like sunlight or stock color headlights and has the highest lumen count (brightest) of the available options

    5000k will be whiter and is the highest TRS recommends.
    6000k is also very white with a tiny bit more blue

    Any higher temp is stupid because you lose light output and fatigue your eyes and others.

    I always say 4300k is the way to go but can see how white/5000k has an appeal

    The upside to a projector retrofit vs cheap hid bulbs in your stock light housing is mainly that it is higher quality and has a clean cut off line.

    I can't think of anything else off the top of my head but that should be a good starting point for anyone who wants to start researching these.

    please add your name to the most recent list.

    lets get number 8 going!! keep in mind it doesn't really matter what kit you get, right now we just need the members that are committing to buy, once we complete the 25 TRS will give us the coupon code and we can use that 25% coupon code for any of the stage III or stage IV kits.

    If you're in just copy and paste the list (not quote) with you added so OP doesn't have to add all 25 people. Just make sure you're actually in and ready to buy, not just thinking about it.

    did you read original post?

    H4/9003 should be your harness (relay).. bulbs up to you.. 4300 is OEM color. 5000k is brightest white.. 6000k+ you will start to see more blue and lose effectiveness of light... ballast, 35w should suffice. 55w highly not recommended for Mini projectors.
