    I ordered the angel eyes, and hid kit / harness / wiring and it cost me 315 with shipping. I didn't want to have downtime with my car so i didn't do the jdm conversion. I honestly don't know a lot about it so i figured HID'S are good enough for me.

    Their "jdm" lights, you all do know, are the HID conversion to jdm lights, not converting yours to jdms, right?

    I'm not sure what the JDM stuff is i have an 06 wrx, and i didn't want to send him my lights since i would have down time. All i'm saying is he's a really nice guy and i would buy from him again.

    Could you clear this up for me? What is the difference? JDM lights have better projectors? but what are the projectors and what do they do? I read the forums and asked him, but i didn't really understand it completely.

    jdm lights have RHD(japan) projectors in them and the other ones are just stock lights are have pieces of them painted black.

    one is a projector and the other is a reflector. most people who retro the jdm lights yank out the crappy projector and place a real HID projector in them. something like a tsx or s2k retro is the most common, but other ones will fit if you cut enough of the bracket away

    i guess i dont even understand how that works. do you have to pay for the amber removal, angel eyes, custom painting, and retrofitting all individually? then do you pick Acura TSX or Honda S2000 conversions? sorry i just dont know...
