Matt is awesome, he also owns HIDplanet.com as well, so you can always get tech help from him there. I wouldn't buy an HID kit from anywhere else.

If we can't get 10 people for the Morimotos, if anyone else wants to buy TRS products maybe he'll let us add them to the group buy for wholesale prices.

That sounds great but we don't all have to get exactly the same thing right? I know we are all going for morimoto's but the shrouds and bulbs can be different right?

We'd have to check with Matt, but it would be impossible to organize a group buy for morimotos if we all need to buy identical kits.

Makes sense, I am thinking January?

Anybody know any reputable installers? I know this setup is supposed to be easy but I have a dillema where my current hid kit is behind my front bumper which means I gotta take it off and rip out the existing wiring.

Also when it comes time to install would the projectors fit through the oem lighting hole and you cant mount it straight from the engine bay? or do you really have to take out the entire light (like the youtube videos), do the oven thing, and mount it that way?

^ you have to take the headlight out chances is you need to take the bumper off. Put it in the oven bake it. Take off the lens. Mount projector. Make sure it's level. Glue on shroud. Remount the headlight lens. Run electrical for the lights tap high beam for bi-xenon. Mount ballast. Reinstall headlight connect electrical. Re install bumper. Done.

Should take 4 hrs for both lights when you start off.

Remember to get some sealant for the headlight housing. Double sided tape to mount the ballast. And some high temp glue/sealant to mount the shroud on to the projector.

There is.

What is the next step in arranging a group buy, I've never set one up before.

I'd be down for a group retrofit meet.
I don't have a space to do it, but I could bring my heat gun if thats any help.

Awesome so we have 4 confirmations. If you are unsure about which kit to get, email Matt from TRS and im sure he can point you in the right direction.

bump, how you guys gonna install these lights? The guy who said he can do it for me bailed out sayin it was too hard. Are you guys plannin to do it yourselves or go to a shop?

BTW talked to TRS "We could get discounts on the setups applied for you guys on any order with 2+ people, so there's good incentives to buy as a group!"

so even if we got only the 5 peeps its still alright

I was planning on doing them myself.

I've taken s2000 tail lights apart before. Wasn't too difficult. Hopefully, the head lights are similar in difficulty.

I'm planning on doing it myself as well, I picked up a spare set of used OEM headlights off Ebay for $25 shipped, so I got a back up in case I screw up.

I'm probably going to try a heat gun and if that fails I'll do the oven method. If anyone is willing to host a group install session I'd be in for that too.

Just a fyi tho,

No group buys.
Group Buys are not allowed unauthorized. This type of purchase falls under our normal advertising rates. The organizer must purchase a Buy/Sell Advertising Dealer License or a Group Buy License. Refer to Profit 2.0. This is unfair to legitimate sponsors who do purchase licenses and obey our rules.

nice. I might just try do it myself but I never dissasembled anything other than the battery on my car. So based on your experience would you say removing the front bumper and headlights is relatively easy? Thats the part im worried about the most. All I really have is a couple tools and a bunch of time.

Abt the group buy issue, didnt really know that. Too bad
