Default To all FD owners... HID Projector kit deal from SportTuner.com

I was told by owner of SportTuner to see if we could get a Group Buy going for these lights. If we sell 25+, he will donate one maybe two to give out at DGRRX.

If we could get 25 buyers, SportTuner.com will sell these for $600/ kit SHIPPED!!

This is way cheaper than any other kits out there by over $100.

For more info about these lights, goto: http://www.sporttuner.com/Electrical.html

I'm about to install a set into my FD and will post more info about them.

If you are interested in a set, please post here!

Phil

Here is a Video of the lights by SportTuner.com



I got off the phone with SportTuner.com and this is how its going to work.

if you are interested in buying these lights, post here.

Once we have enough interested and serious buyers, PM me with your name, email, and shipping info. Once that is provided, I will PM you back with a discount code in which you could call SportTuner to order your kit at $600 shipped.

This way I know who ordered it and we will get our free kit(s) to be given away at DGRRX.

Phil

Sweet looking lights. I posted this in the other thread, but maybe some details as to the components used would be helpful. I'll be rocking my sleepy eye HIDs but these look very promising.

Yes! 25+ sets and I will donate 2 full kits for the event!

Here is the kit components:



I will even do Slim style ballasts for no additional charge!

These are Bi-Xenon which have your High and Low beams. Standard ballasts shown in picture.

Those look nice. Question - do you retrofit the lenses with the bi-xenon projectors? If so, what can you tell us about the quality of the projectors and bulbs? Also, what about the quality of the ballasts?

The headlight housings I use are the same Sonar ones we distribute which you can purchase from several vendors as well as us.

The projector is one which we helped to design some years back. We have the projector body and lens manufactured for us. We then chrome the cast metal body in house and assemble the body and lens in house. The projector is a Bi-Xenon design utilizing the standard shutter and plate system to create the beam cutoff and to control the High and Low beam pattern. This system was designed using the UNECE (ECE for short) standard. I can produce the projector in RHD (Right Hand Drive) or LHD (Left Hand Drive) pattern per customer request. The projector uses a TC-DS2 style bulb with built in AMP connector utilizing a simple retaining nut to hold the bulb in place making changing of the bulb easier and eliminating the large block or igniter connector used by other HID bulbs.

The rest of the parts are sourced thru a couple of suppliers in Taiwan which manufactures our harnesses and ballasts. The ballasts we use are built to our requirements with a digitally control PCM unit with multiple built in protection circuits and built in power indicator. The ballast is designed to protect against voltage spikes and hot starts just to name a few. The ballast uses a cast housing with built in heat sink to help dissipate any heat build up as well as being completely epoxy sealed to keep it waterproof. Igniters are built in to help reduce size and we use standard 9006 power input plug and AMP output connectors. These units are 35watt ballasts which utilizes less power than your factory low beam halogen bulb after start up.

I can supply Slim-line ballasts in 35watt or 50watt which are universal Chinese units which do not utilize digitally controlled circuits or protection. I personally do not recommend using a 50watt ballast as all bulbs are designed to work on 35watts, the 50watt units will over charge the bulb shortening its lifespan and bleeding the color or hue.

We have bulbs made for us in OEM hues of 4.3K, 5K, and 6K, however I can provide Chinese bulbs in 3K, 8K, 10K and12K if so desired.

A CCFL (Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp) ring or halo is incorporated into the front housing which was intended for use as a signal in the original design. However wiring is setup for the user to operate as they choose allowing it to be used for Halo, Highway light, Turn Signal or whatever you decide.

I warranty all parts for 1 year and stock replacement parts.

I finally had some time yesterday to finish up my FEED lights and SportTuner HID projectors on my FD..

Quality of the lights were good and wiring was pretty straight foward. Only thing I did slightly different was to extend the ground wires to the battery instead of the body of the car.

Anyhow, here are some pics.

FEED and SportTuner HID install






Here are some comparison pics between my Acura TL OEM HIDs and the projector style Sport Tuner HIDs.

Different exposure



Overall, I think its a great choice for HID upgrade.
