New Projector retrofit kit for WK $250.

Found this. Not sure how well it'll work. Purchased a HID kit from this co. for my friends RAM. Works perfect and was shipped fast. Lets discuss what you think about this. I'd like to try it. I'm just worried about the projector lense being too small.

Re: New Projector retrofit kit for WK $250.

I really like the simplistic approach to the retrofit. However, I'm not sure of the quality of the projectors themselves. I suppose its just like the PNP HID kits, there is a broad range of quality with those.

I just installed an Extreme HID kit in my WK and I am not ecstatic with the turnout. I see hot spots and glare all over the place but it'll do until I can piece together a good retrofit. I'm waiting to see the results of robpp's headlights. I'd also love to see some aftermarket housings for the '08 and up housings so I can crack open an extra set and do a good retrofit without having to rush things by not having any headlights.

I would not mind OEM housings, but they are kind of pricey. I can retrofit better projectors for less money. I'm not going to hound car-part for OEM HIDs; I can barely keep up with my fantasy baseball team let alone search for good deals on headlights! Plus, if I found a good deal tomorrow, I simply could not afford them. I'll see how the summer plays out; OEM lights would be the simplest approach.

Re: New Projector retrofit kit for WK $250.

So am I right in thinking that this slots into the existing housing? Kinda cool.

WHAT! I can afford that. I guess I need to put my ear to the ground and start looking. I saw your set go for $725 shipped a bit ago. That was a bit too steep for me. Coincidentally, I bought the Extreme HID kit the same day I saw yours were sold for that price.

Re: New Projector retrofit kit for WK $250.

i think it looks pretty legit....i found the projectors, without HIDs for 160...so 250 sounds great if its including HIDs, but the set for 160 are bixenon projectors!
