Projector46 Update: Important

UPDATE!!!!!: For some of you that have paid and are awaiting shipments. I've just found out that my shipper/assembler is hopelessly behind on orders.

Over 8 of your parts haven't shipped as a result. He's been trying to do them in stages and not individually and so far just has the DDE prebuilt on them and has moved onto the HIDs as well. Please excuse the delay!!!!

When the labels were created, it was assumed that the lights would ship in 2 days maximum, that is not the case!

Again, sincerest apologies.

Consider this a "new product" delay as we ramp up our expertise across the whole organization on these.

it means, if you have a tracking number, then it's not assured that it shipped as of yet.

From what I saw last time I dropped by, it's well worth the wait
Projector46 is an awesome product and I'd like to congratulate anyone who has it on order. JSW is hoping that the folks at Umnitza will let us carry this new product

Plus, I think it's understandable that all vendors and suppliers are a little bit swamped right before Bimmerfest. I myself have a lot less time to ship and answer emails between packing, making arrangements, and double-checking everything.

It's called Pre Shipment. I can go to Fedex.com and fill it out for a shipment two weeks from now and it will print me a shipping label with trackng number... cept it's not going anywhere...


Obviously I missed this group buy... I guess its for Xenons w/DDE? How much did you all pay and can i get some when everything is calmed down? Do you have a non-DDE verson?

YOu go to the site, punch in the tracking number and it will say Payment received april 28th, but no package has been dropped off... You'll know when they get that package because it will look something like this: 5:52 pm ANAHEIM, CA Picked up by FedEx

now... since I helped you, help me Do you have the details about this group buy? Mainly how much and what did you buy...

By the way, if they give you an estimated delivery date, then they have the package. You only get a delivery date when the package starts to make its way to you... they update that date depending on delays, accidents, or whatever.

I understand there are delays with the arrival of such a new product and i will continue to wait as long as the quality is being invested my purchase. I do think such delays are better recieved on a individual basis rather then a forum. As it stands no one really knows who lights are in the mail or still staying put. Its not like we've spent $50 dollars. Such feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Apologies. But 4 more sets will go out today.

All shipments will NOT happen tomorrow or through Bimmerfest and will resume next week. Sorry

Additional and final sets will go early tomorrow - we're making an exception.

Not only that, but the DDEs are in their own little groove so that there's no glare. They are also completely covered by an OEM-looking covering...
Oh, yeah... and they have 6000K HIDs so the color is prettier than stock xenons, too.

These are from Umnitza.com


Projector46 vs. OEM halogens

Can you guys tell that I want to carry this product in the near future?
