FS: retro 6th gen

okay. decided to put it back up for sale. still has never been installed. the whole total will be 750+shipping. wiring harness was made by steverino, bulbs from ebay (used, BMW philips OEM), Matsu****a ballast waterproof ignitors, e46 bixenon projectors and shrouds, ebay dr2 to d2s converter. OBO




bulbs are there but they were installed inside the retros when i took the pic. and some modding might have to be done.

You decided just to sell the retros? Why didn't you get some OEM ballasts to go with them and sell the kit?

OT: Just so you know, there are 3 interviews you have to go to for Best Buy... at least for the position I applied for. I got halfway through the 3rd and final interview and I failed... so good luck to you. Beautiful set of headlights you're selling.

those look like steverino's old lamps, if they are you can expect nothing but quality.

Thanks for the props Jonathan, but unfortunately, they are not mine. They look exactly like my old set though. This particular one belonged to a friend of mine who sold his Accord to buy a TSX. He had the retro done by somebody (even I don't know) a LOOOONG time ago, but this particular style looks very similar to a set that sold on here 4 months ago, perhaps the maker could chime in? I merely copied the design to create one just like it (yellow high-beam area, E46 bixenon shrouds - my favourite). Mine had clear strips at the bottom as opposed to amber ones. =P

I have seen these in pesron and would like to BUMP for a nice retro.

okay okay, ive gone through a lot lately so these have to go for sure now. im also adding to the list TLs rims and tien basic coil overs(i have an 02 sedan, i dont know if suspension is interchangable, can someone verify)

the rims have minor curbage on all of them i believe. 450+your stocks (no stealies)
coilovers for 500 + your stock + your labor or a shop you know of

local only, i live in the oakland, CA and willing to drive to sf or sj or within general area.

No, ... if you look carefully, there's no light output towards the left of the vehicle (on-coming traffic direction).

I'm telling you man, just install ti.

How much would a retro like this normally cost?

Is this a good price and can you vouch for the build quality of these?

Parts for a retro run $500-$600 (with shrouds). Depending on what projectors you choose, etc. That's if everything is OEM. I don't know how much labor runs.

That is a picture showing the output of an E46 bixenon projector, exactly the same as the one currently for sale.
