You said "We sell them, they are about $250 over the cost of any P46s - the $150 for the FXR, $65 to install them, and another 35 for the adapters you'll need for the D2S bulbs."

That means that is pre-install to just plug the old one out and plug this one in?? Can you put angel eyes on FXR?? If so, How much will it be the total if you add your orion v2 to it?

I believe you don't install your products right?

it's a little more than just to plug them in. We actually have to rebuilt and create a bracket system for them to hold in place and level just like the original projector is.
Also, there is a bit of an issue with the projector sitting out further back than the standard one, so you need to have a cover that is larger.

We install all the projectors and built them up in house.

Oh that sounds really good. Will the projector come with orion v2? and will the large cover that I need be included?

You have the option of multi-color or standard Orion V2 in them. We recommend the standard because otherwise the prices go up dramatically.

The Eagle Eyes projectors are some of the lowest quality projectors available for their price. I would steer clear of those.

The FXR retrofit is a full projector reinstall inside an existing headlight. It basically gives you bixenon functionality with factory quality output (or better) and simple plug and play.

For $650-700 - the price of a quality USED set of OEM headlights - you can get better light output, better warranty, and higher quality angel eyes with the Projector46s found on this page:
Projector46 Facelifted Sedan - our most popular for pre-facelifted sedans and coupes - starting at $349 complete

yes, that's the Projector46, with FXR option, a little more expensive but still less than OEM but with better light output and quality and you get bixenon.

If you select the install and the FXR option 35W or 50W, you will have the projectors with bixenon functionality all pre-installed for you to simply plug in.
This setup is better than any OEM setup.
