There are some sources you can look at for the new ballasts and lights along with harnesses.
I'm aware that I don't need a new housing to run new lights. I have 35watt 6000k HID's in my car now. I want projectors so the output quality of light is better, and so I don't feel like I'm blinding all of the people I'm driving at.

The difference between Lhd and rhd on projectors are the step in the cutoff shield.

Sorry Kaptin. I thought you were the same guy that posted what I've quoted above you.

My bad, yes, these projectors will work awesome, and no blinding to other drivers!

Can you release any more info on these? Price? ETA? Place to purchase?
Think you could hook up a fellow Oklahoman? I'm down in Moore.

Put me on the "interested" list. I can't commit to buy yet, but I also can't resist DRLs with projectors...

When the group buy goes "green" I'll be posting in this thread, and some others, to notify all of those that are interested.
