    Where are you located?

    And just curious, what is your new plan? This is a pretty badass setup, not sure how you can get much better!

    that's a pretty standard price for completed retrofits and these have some very nice components... plus no downtime, just plug and play.

    OP, night shots showing cutoff and light output would be helpful though.

    GLWS! looks great!

    I'm located in Costa Mesa just north of you. I'm looking to do a smoked chrome, different shrouds, and different bulbs. Projector TBD - FXR or something bigger.

    Bump for a great looking set of headlights.

    If the OP wants to charge $5000 and someone is willing to pay it then so be it. He can set the price at whatever amount he wants. No need to trash a thread because you don't agree with his price.

    There is a reason we call it fleabay on here. You hope you get OEM housings and they still charge and arm and a leg shipping from China.
    THIS.

    Good luck OP, those are some sexy headlights.:cool:

    Thank you dexterdog, EATABULLETcom, and Large for getting this thread back on track.

    To anyone else, if you don't like the price, move on. Hate elsewhere.

    In reality the OP's price is pretty much right on track with the current market. OEM headlights are $250 a piece from the dealership, and the bhlm and retro service is $750 at a minimum. So by my math that is $1250 for this set up.

    GLWS OP. If I had the cash these bad ass headlights would already be mine. :)

    This is from the first night. Keep in mind, this is only one headlight. We were messing around aiming the lights.
