Group Buy has been extended a few days to try and get to a total of 40 orders (which is another $25USD off and reduced international shipping).

Now is the chance, please let me know if you want to get on.

Thanks

Was going to add myself to the order but would want them to work with my existing HID bulbs - and since they wont i cant really justify it right now sorry.

FWIW 55w HIDs are crazy bright...standard is 35w and 4300k is the standard HID colour temperature. The blue light you see from oncoming cars with HID's is caused by diffraction as it goes through the lens, not from the light itself being blue...5000k isn't so bad though.

Are your retrofitted lights 35w (image posted above in previous reply), zedevan?

55Ws are typically 10-15% brighter than 35Ws (which is pretty bright already). What bulbs are you using right now? We're using H1 bulbs in these kits.

Our manufacturer's 5000K is really about a 4700K. Our 5000K is a pure white with some yellow hue in it. http://imgur.com/bJODEwn

Hi All,

Just an update.

The production of the lights should be finished this week. The container is then being shipped to the US, which should be expected in the next 3-4 weeks. Ben expects our lights to be shipped out to Aus on the 25th of May.

Cheers

Dapper Lighting has received them at his warehouse in the states. I believe they are doing a test fit in a car to make sure "its all good", then he should ship them out.

I will let you know when they are enroute to me.

Hey Guys,

An update from Ben, there has been a delay in getting them imported:

Customs got back to us today. They told us that DOT is cracking down on illegal headlights (the cheap crap on ebay) and that they've sent our lights to be inspected by a "DOT specialists team" to confirm legality.

We have paperwork that certifies our compliance with DOT/FMVSS so we don't expect any issues. Just going to take time to clear.

Let me know if you guys have any specific questions. We're doing everything we can to push this along.


Let me know if you have any specific concerns or want more information and I can talk to Ben.

Kirby. Just a heads up i increased my order to 2 sets and Ben from dapper said mine could no longer fit in the same box as everyone elses. So i have paid to have my 2 sets sent directly to myself in Melbourne so i no longer require you to receive or onfoward my headlights.

Thanks Tai
