Wink GB#5 - FD3S Bi-Xenon HID Projector Headlights… FINAL GB! - SBG

This is the last Group Buy on our Bi-Xenon Projector Headlights.

http://rotarycarclub.com/rotary_foru...ad.php?t=18329




With summer coming to a close we seem to be receiving a ton of messages asking if our headlights are available. Unfortunately as we only make them in large batches for group buy runs we’ve had to turn everyone away for single orders due to lack of time to build them as we’re working on so many other projects at the moment. Since the headlights have to be hand built and are very time consuming we’ve put them on the back burner for quite some time, but will do one last push on them before focusing on R&D of new projects.



INFO:

We all know that the stock headlights on the RX-7 are completely inadequate for night driving. With the FD being capable of high speeds, the possibility of missing something on the side of the road, up ahead, or around a corner creates a dangerous scenario. We finally decided to fix this problem once and for all. SakeBomb Garage is pleased to knock your socks off with the first and only true 'pop-up' Bi-Xenon Projector HID kit for the FD.

FD owners: Welcome to the 21st Century...
PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS:


- New headlight housings, with bi-xenon (high/low) projectors
- Optically clear projector lenses
- New (OEM) Philips 4300K bulbs (5000k SBG bulbs with 50w ballast option, 6000k available as special order)
- High quality 35w weather/shock proof digital heavy duty ballast (50w ballasts available)
- Custom SBG Plug and Play wiring harness -specifically for the FD

We’re confident that this is currently the best performing lighting kit available for the FD, from here to Japan… bar none! This setup is the standard against which other lights are currently judged. Yes, they're that good. These lights ARE the gold standard, and we've yet to see a higher performing lighting setup. For a car capable of speeds in excess of 160mph and cornering abilities that put most other cars to shame, you ought to be able to see where you are going. We built these lights not only for aesthetic benefit, but as a much needed safety item to prevent a potential accident. Yes they are expensive, but so is your car and they have personally saved us from accidents, deer, and tickets over the many years we’ve been running them

PRICE ($100 off retail):
$875.00 - 35w Ballasts and Philips OEM 4300k Bulbs
$895.00 - 50w Ballasts (~30% brighter) with SBG 5000K Bulbs


This group buy base pricing is $100 off the standard price; However, we typically do not have these in stock as it is.



********************************
GROUP BUY INSTRUCTIONS:

This Group Buy will run a little differently than usual. Here's how it will work:


1. We have set up a group buy "deposit" page, which requires you make an initial deposit of $100 towards your headlights. The link to that page is here:
GROUP BUY DEPOSIT: FD3S PremierLine Bi-Xenon HID Projector Headlights (August 2014) - SakeBomb Garage LLC

2. After completing payment for this deposit, you will receive a confirmation e-mail of your order.
3. We will then send you a second e-mail containing a unique coupon code for a $200.00 credit towards your purchase of your
FD3S: PremierLine Bi-Xenon HID Projector Headlights - SakeBomb Garage LLC

4. YOUR UNIQUE COUPON CODE WILL EXPIRE AT 12:00 MIDNIGHT SEPTEMBER 30th, 2014 PST.
5. YOU MUST SUBMIT FULL PAYMENT FOR YOUR "FD3S RX-7 PREMIER LINE HEADLIGHTS" BY 12:00 MIDNIGHT SEPTEMBER 30th, 2014 PST.
6. To submit your full payment before 9/30/2014 visit the following link to and check-out using your unique group-buy deposit code:
FD3S: PremierLine Bi-Xenon HID Projector Headlights - SakeBomb Garage LLC

7. After 9/30/14 your group buy code will expire, and you will lose your spot if you have not sent in full payment. If any spots remain you may still complete your checkout at that point, and we will apply your $100 deposit towards the purchase of the lights.

********************************

NOTE: We are making 25 sets of lights total for this run. We do not know when/if we will have time to make these available again, so for now this will be the last run of headlights until further notice.

Info on our Bi-Xenon setup

HID Lighting 101:



Other HID “kits” use the stock headlight housing in conjunction with a Xenon bulb. The plus side, they are unbelievably cheap. The negative side? Typically these setups:


- Blind other drivers
- Have a horrible field of view
- Severely scatter the light
- Have uneven lighting with no cutoff
- Actually WORSEN your night vision (they throw intense light into the foreground. This makes your pupils close, causing your distance night-vision to become worse than with your stock halogen lights)

Projector HID's on the other hand are what is used in every OEM HID lighting setup. Our Projectors:

- Have a very even dispersion of light
- Have a very wide dispersion of light
- Have a very long throw (with high beams)
- Illuminate much larger portions of the road while not ruining your night vision
- Oh yeah, and they don't blind other drivers, or attract attention from people who may or may not drive Crown Victorias

Projectors vs Reflectors:



Here is a good video comparing true projector HID’s to “conversion/reflector” HID’s:

To truly see the difference you need to see our kit in person, pictures honestly don’t do it justice. But don’t take our word for it…

Here’s what current owners have said:

When you want payment please PM me so i can send the money right away incase i do not look at this thread often. thanks. John

When I saw these, I thought it was a no-brainer. Went for it immediately. The product is top-notch. The ballasts are really solid looking and very small in size. Everything was perfect. When I installed them and lit them up, the difference was AGAIN night and day from the HID kits I had installed before. Even though the HID kits produced a lot of light, but these kits made the visibility so much better: so much more usable light, not light everywhere! And there were high beams too!

And the customer service and all around behavior of Dan and the team are just fantastic, which alone is enough to buy from them.

Thanks guys for making such a wonderful product.

These are fantastic lights and in my opinion in every way shape and form worth every dollar they ask for.

I love how well I can see now. I planned on getting flush mount headlights when I first got the car but as time passed I began to love how the car looks with the pop ups down more than anything. I was still considered getting flush mounts just due to how terrible the factory light output was. After reading about how some of the flush mounts were as bad or even worse at safely illuminating the road I was back at square one. Because of the price of many options and I also wanted something that I thought looked good as well it seemed finding the correct option for me was going to be difficult. Once I saw the original post about the set they built initially I fell in love with these. It was exactly what I wanted and I luckily was able to squeeze in for a set. These guy's are extremely professional and produce quality products. If you miss out on these you'll kick yourself in the ass later. It's unfortunate that are only available through a group buy since they are such a great safety improvement. Thanks for all the hard work and time you guy's put into providing us with these.

She also doesn't mind spending money when it's worth it and when she went out for a drive at night with me she even thought it was money well spent.
I've only owned my FD for maybe 3 years and been driving it for 1 but one of my biggest let downs, which may actually be the only one, was the piss poor lighting. If you put things in perspective these lights are a great price and if you can afford them you should most definitely get them while you can. From a customers perspective what Heath said is not a sales pitch but the god honest truth. I personally feel the GB price is extremely fair. Look at the prices of most other options out there, then compare their functionality to these. I bet you find these are one of the best deals out there. I got these purely for the lighting upgrade and was happy that I got to keep the pop ups. If you haven't seen them in person try and find someone that has them so you can see them in person I guarantee any question you have will be answered and you'll be ready to get your set.

Optional 50W Ballasts:

We are now offering the option of a 50w ballast (and accompanying 5000k bulb) instead of the OEM-spec 35w ballasts. There are pros and cons to using 50w ballasts, but we'll do our best to explain the differences below.

Xenon bulbs are manufactured to run at 35 watts, however they can be over-driven to produce more light than would normally be available at a lower wattage. Typically one will find an additional 30% increase in total light, however this extra light does come at a cost. The additional wattage does reduce the lifespan of the bulbs somewhat. The color range of the bulbs is shifted LOWER (more yellow) with increased wattage (however the color temp can be shifted back up to normal (around 4300k) by using "5000K bulbs"), which is why we will supply this kit with 5000 Kelvin bulbs.

At the end of the day, yes, the total light output is increased, but it does not change the beam pattern with which it is distributed, so you simply end up with a BRIGHTER light, not wider or longer throw. Is this a good thing? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. In the city where streets are well lit, the extra light from the 50w ballasts is definitely welcome, but on very dimly lit back-roads the contrast difference between foreground and background could feel overwhelming to some, and reflector signs will appear very reflective. It is a personal choice whether this increased light output is right for you, but if in doubt remember that the OEM standard is 35w.
