The Lighting Firm headlights - anyone have them?

Does anyone have these? They are basic projectors in an ST1 headlight, or so it says. How can they offer it so cheap? Mass quantities? Headlights alone are 250 each plus the retro!

$570 shipped, Seems like a good deal if the headlight is oem.

A bunch of ST guys have them:

They had a group buy that ended like a week ago and a lot of people ordered them as well.

If you retrofit your stock headlights, you are going to pay a lot less than $570.

ST light have different pinout...

Many people ended selling their ST lights because they didn't have time to mess around with the ST to reg focus connector conversion.

Those headlights are for MK3s without factory HID so they will work fine in a non-ST. I've looked into these guys a lot and it seems like they do good work and stand behind their products. Can't pull the trigger now so close to the holidays but might pick up a set sometime next year.

They seem like a great option. I'd like to know more about these connectors though.

I have mine on order since last October. Since I wanted the newest theretrofitsource.com parts, I had thelightingfirm wait until they received the new xb35 ballasts and new xb35 5500k bulbs (d2s). Still waiting for mine to come in, but I'll let you guys know when they do. My custom order (not the pre-made one straight off their site) came in at $599 shipped.

Nope, not true. They're custom making me (not from the group buy) one for my SE!

I had a set custom built. Chandler definitely stands behind his product. He's a good dude.
