Thanks for the compliments!
And I don't mind sharing price at all, here'* my breakdown so far:
HID projectors: $60
OEM GE 4300k D2S bulbs (new): $68
H1 projectors (high beam): $30
Adapter cables, AMP to D2S: $21
3M window sealer (for headlight reseal): $15
Various hardware, cutting bits: $35
Shrouds, 4 E46R Extended: $55
Extra stuff that I bought includes another set of adapter cables from DDM tuning, they were slow as crap for some reason so I bought another from the retrofit source, but that'* another $33. It'll have been two weeks since I ordered them before they arrive.
So all total about $320. I already had aftermarket ballasts for my HIDs and a relay for them, without that would be an additional $50 or so for cheapie stuff.
Still need to buy H1 bulbs, some rewiring equipment and a relay for them. Looks like all that is going to cost me an additional $50 or so for quality equipment. For the time being, I'm just going to put cheapie H1 bulbs in to fill the space until I figure out how to wire it up.
So maybe all total starting out with plain stock headlights this retrofit would cost about $400-$450 not including the redundant DDM cables.
Final pics! Please excuse my horribly dirty car...
Well I say final pics, I may try to grab a wall shot later, but I'm done whoring for now, lol!
I tried to take a video but it sucked BAD. Not only did it not show the output at all, but the camera kept going in and out of focus. Doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get a good driving video for you guys.
