When you get the board you will realize there is no way to replace the board witbou opening up the headlight. Then place your 560 $ headlight in the oven and try to pry it open not even k owing that a replacement board will even work. Cross fingers and hope they arw fixed so you can sell them to some sucker that isnt on ff. Go buy projectors from retro solutions and mod your oems for years of hid quality........

This company is the same I bought mine from. First pair to the us and the first pair to fry in 2 min.

The garage still smells after this thing burnt!!!
You have convinced me... No way I'd spend that kind of money to go through that.

If you're not able to get the dispute through with PayPal. I'd check with your Credit Card company.

I hate to say it, but no they didn't do any real qc checking before shipping, after all they don't have to for the Chinese domestic market, and therefore that's in their minds good enough for the world if they aren't producing something on contract for a global manufacturer who actually keeps tabs on production they try to do things as cheaply as possible while selling for a lot of profit.

Its unfortunate that you had to be the guinea pig for them though.

Sucks about the quality of these. I was really hoping the ST reproductions would be an option but since they are the same seller I am not willing to take a chance, especially not for $800+ shipped.

Hi, perhaps I can add a small point to some of this debate, and I will leave it up to you guys to decide what you do with it. Many of us in the UK have the HID's as a standard fit in their Titanium X's but we are experiencing issues with the LED's flashing whilst they are being used as the sidelights. There also has been some minor reports of the wiring burning out to the headlamps causing the whole unit, bulbs and associated wiring having to be replaced...

thank you for the heads up, I don't know if the american HID headlights are manufactured by another supplier since they are a bit different: black housing, and the projector eyelid

Interesting. I don't really care for the LEDs. I wonder if just snipping the wire that powers them would alleviate any of the electrical issues.
