i bought my kit from xenondepot.com, around AUS $450 all up including shipping

i was sent the wrong kelvin globes in my kit, so i have all the wiring connected but havent put the globes in yet

i did send the globe back, and had another one sent out to me, so no issues there with the seller, only he sent me a wiring kit instead of a pair of globes, so im quite pissed now. Ive been waiting nearly 2 weeks to fit these things, i cant see anything with the halogen globes, they are the weakest halogens ive ever seen. I think the problem is the projector dispersing the light just too wide, and there isnt enough output in the halogen globe to fill the beam pattern

my car is at 1600kms atm. I had initial concerns about the gearbox being notchy, and hard to engage gears when cold, but now the gearbox has settled in perfectly and all those problems have gone. Im very relieved, but something to remember if u feel the same initially

i had a little run with my mates tweaked 04 WRX today and from a roll in 2nd just pulled on him, i was smiling ear to ear bcoz he's a serious "WRX are the quickest cars in the world bro" kind of guy and he was shattered :rolf2:

Hi Deess, were you on the s2ki forums as well (while you had the S2000)? My previous car was also an S2000, so welcome to the Zed club.

Which kelvin globes did you get for the HID kit? I am also looking for a HID kit to put in my car when I get it.
