Initial Group Purchase Dot Projectors46

$799 is the total price.
We will ONLY BE ORDERING BLACK TRIM.

You must order before March 28th (not 31st).

LEVELS OF PURCHASE
  1. Projectors46 w/ DDE & 5000K HID: $799
  2. Projectors46 w/ DDE & 6000K HID: $829
  3. Projectors46 w/ 5000K HID: $649 <-- ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH EXISTING HALOS and you must have proof of purchase.
  4. Projectors46 w/ 6000K HID: $679 <--- ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH EXISTING HALOS and you must have proof of purchase.
  5. Projectors46 w/ DDE: $599

There will be no sales without DDE. We have committed to all the stock we can purchase. This will not be limited to 30 people, it will be limited to 50 people. After we reach 50 people, the pricing is likely to go up $50 on each of the combinations.

Benefits
1)
Compare with OEM Projectors from BOSCH sans DDE:
$1158
$1249
$600-800 USED and non DDE.

2)
Also, no flashing ECU is likely to not be required (to be confirmed later this week).

3) Brighter more directed output

4) OEM-level finish

5) Fully integrated, and plug and play.

Yeah, Matt, any timeframe as to when you might have a few pictures of some of these units, not even installed, just on a desk or something?

Alright, so let me get this strait. This GB is for aftermarket, not OEM projector (aka BiXenons) headlights with the Phosphyre halos preinstalled.
Option E is just normal halogen headlights with halos already installed.
The difference between A and B is simply a brighter bulb (with B being brighter).
This a simple DYI, simple being it is plug-and-play.
Correct me if I am wrong about anything above. I do have some questions though. Will these have auto-leveling capabilities? What are the difference between buying these versus OEM (aside from the fact these have the halos preinstalled), and the cheaper price ()?

Edits: More questions! Will there be a possible discount on price if we can come pick them up (versus paying shipping)? This kit still comes with everything we need to run a switch into our car so we can turn the halos on/off, right?

I think everything you said is correct. Matt is offering us non xenon people a chance to get HIDs with projectors and with DDE at a great price. These will come with everything installed in the houseing so all you have to do is take your existing one out and put this in. Im sure it will not have auto leveling since its not OEM, plus that would be more money and is useless with this setup. Also with the HIDs option, all you would have to do is plug your existing H7 plug into the HIDs which should not trip any dash light as it would if you upgraded from non xenon to OEM xenon. As for the DDE im sure it will hook up same as if you were to buy it seprately and custom switch can be added. Im sure if Im not correct on this, Matt will fill you in.

The question I have is how will the HIDs ballast be placed with these headlight housing? Will the black trim be same as OEM so I can swap my silver trim into this setup....

I cant wait to see more pics of the housing itself and closer picture of the projectors.

Hello umnitza,

I am wondering - what is the brand/manufacturer of the HID bulbs and the ballasts? (I know you said it's not OEM, but no brand was given.)

It's really undetermined when they will or even ever be available

HIDS are determined at this time, but we cannot reveal them just yet.

We have some issues that may have arisen, nothing that delays the product, but things we have to work through.

They are on the site now, however, they are not there reflecting the price discount that will be given to E46fanatics members ONLY.

We are still trying to setup a coupon code that only E46 fanatics owners will know.

While the pictures are identical on Coupe and Sedan, look for the C or the S (or just check the model number).

If you are "itching" and want to submit deposits, please note the arrival date of this product is exactly 1 month from now. That is when things are going to start shipping.
So, if you want to put your deposit in, you may pay using paypal the stated amounts above, and factor in $22 for shipping.

paypal@umnitza.com - we are only going to accept full payment for deposits.
