Testing Waters: '01 BMW E46 Retrofit done by Rich // ** PICS **!!!!

Alright...so I'm sure if you've been in the 6th gen section you've seen the "Finals are done kicking my ass........" thread about my new TSX retros that I'm working on. Now that I'm nearing the end of that project...I'm gonna sell the retros that I have right now. I bought these used from a guy who had them done by Rich (99AznAccord). They are in great condition...the lenses are not scratched or anything...I have both bulb holders and basically this sale will be for the headlights only. They are OEM Honda Accord headlamps for 98-02 Accords (2dr/4dr)...with BMW E46 bixenon projectors (these are from the 3 series BMWs...if I remember correctly I think Rich said these were specifically from an '01 M3). The bixenon feature is not available on these retros though (meaning you can hook your high beams up to these projectors...the headlights utilize the stock high beams on the headlamps). A benefit of the bixenon projectors is that there is a little line across the lens that creates an even and defined field of "glare" that is meant to light up road signs and other things above the cutoff. The light from this "glare" is very subtle...and Rich described it as "glare on purpose."

Anyway...you'll be getting the headlights as described...they're blackhoused with this really cool, dark gunmetal-metallic-ish color (it matches my car perfectly). The amber strips have been removed, but the lower reflector is still there so that you can use your parking light bulb. I think that pretty much covers it...I'm not personally selling the bulbs and ballasts...but if you need a set let me know because my friend Joe has like 6 pairs of bulbs and I think 2 sets of ballasts that he can sell to you. I'll get details on those if anyone is interested.

I'll have pics of the retros I'm selling later tonight hopefully...if not you can check out the 6th gen forum and search for a thread with "Inspired by flux" somewhere in the title. I posted a bunch of pics of my car. Also check out my CarDomain site (link in my sig).


Contact me through PM, post on this thread, or email [email protected]! <-- you can also ask me questions through one of those methods =]

Thanks guys!!!!
Jeff

Here are some pics of the retros. Sorry...the car is dirty...it's about to rain so there's no washing to be done today =/. Anyway...just wanted to get these up so you guys know what I'm putting up for sale.







Hope those help. The bezels were custom bezels made by non other than Rich-the-retro-master himself =].

so far 1lif2liv has said that he will drive down here and pick them up....and he lives in KANSAS. if you're interested...please shoot me some offers. I've got two people interested for $350...and 1lif2liv has dibs so far because we've been talking about this sale for a long time now. Seems like people are interested...so yea just PM me, post, or email me your offers =]. I live in Austin, TX for anyone else who's interested in picking up. I will ship these wherever you'd like, however you'd like, as long as you pay for the shipping costs.

And to clarify...

I am selling just the retrofitted headlamps. That means you would need a pair of D2S HID bulbs (whichever you prefer) and a set of ballasts (again...whichever you prefer).

joedanger11 a friend of mine (who's helping me do my retro) is selling both bulbs and ballasts. He's got about 6 pairs of bulbs and 2 sets of ballasts (if I remember correctly). I can get details on these items for whoever is interested in them. You don't have to buy my retros to buy these ballasts and/or bulbs from him....I just thought it would help him out (to sell them) and whoever buys my retros because then they'd have the entire setup shipped to them in one box ready to install =].

I would like as much as I can get for them. 1lif2liv has dibs so far...I told him that I would sell these to him if I didn't get an offer that blew his away. The reason is that he's expressed interest in my current retros even before I began my retrofit project. I will only have one set of retrofitted headlights for sale...the one I'm working on right now is going to go on my car =] (sorry guys =P. if I ever get the urge to do this again...I'll have another set for sale). As for the ballasts and bulbs (if you need them for any reason)...I think my friend has multiple sets of both for sale and I can find out details on those for you if you need. As for the setup I'm selling....if you want to buy the headlights, the bulbs and the ballasts...then yes...I will ship it all to you at the same time so you can take them out of the box and put them into your car as soon as you get them and you'll have HID projectors in about an hour after you get the package.

^^ haven't sold them yet.


Here are SOME "night" shots. If I take pictures head on @ night...all you'll see are two blobs of light.







I'll try to get some cutoff pics in the next couple of days.
