    I'm talking about a retro-fit, but also factoring in that a project such as this wouldn't be completed in one day. So, in essence, I was figuring:

    1. Pair of OEM headlight $150-180.00 or so.
    2. Set of TSX projectors, ballasts, and bulbs $350-400
    3. Small can of kitty hair $10.00
    4. JB weld $5.00

    Sound about right?

    I thought you were talking about $500 in addition to the HIDs, and headlights. Whew, got me scared for a second.

    I'm not defending anyone, but it was made known that we needed to pay first then he'd place the order with his manufacturer. Because of the fact that we ordered different temperature bulbs amongst the group, he probably had to order what we needed.

    I'll email him again and see what's up.

    Yup, that was known before hand. But tommorow is thursday, and no shipping yet. He said to san that he'd be shipping these LAST FRIDAY. I was at least expecting these by this wekeend, especially if they came in last friday, as he said they did. If they dont ship this week... Well, then i'll start complaining... But I am getting irritated.

    San~Man, thanks for being the liason! :nice:

    yep, that was made clear before we placed our orders.

    I don't really mind, but the wait is getting rediculous.

    Well, look at it this way.....the same light set costs $320.00 from MT, shipped. Considering we paid $275.00 shipped, I think the extra time I waited was worth the $55.00. JMO.

    Not like any of us didn't have headlights to begin with :D

    Here's the latest from Matt:

    "Yup, I got an email from them today. The shipment is still in transit. Overseas shipments can sometimes take FOREVER because they get hung up in customs. The order is expected to be in within 3-4 business days. After that, I will get them out. At the latest, they will go out within 4 business days. Let everyone know that I appreciate their patience and I will send a discount coupon code for each member to use on any future purchase. Thanks Sanford!

    Matt"

    Everyone sit tight, it's on its way.
