We have a major backup on Chromium, so if you order tonight we'll probably get them out around Monday or Tuesday. Nick is going to Hawaii so we'll be slowed up a little bit

KillFox - I don't know wher eyou paid $350 2 weeks ago, but I was referring to the kits available over a YEAR ago. The prices have slowly and steadily dropped (except for when they cut $150 off the price of Titanium and my own suppliers told me "that's just how it is, sell your remaining stock at cost" ) In general, though, BMWERKEN is right. You pay a premium to be the first or have the latest greatest. A 1Ghz computer was wayy expensive 2 years ago. Now those are used as tax-deductible donations to 2nd graders. It's basic Economics, and just because The demon eye retailers don't have 1000 locations across the country or a guy who says "Dude, you're getting demon eyes" on cable TV does not mean that our businesses models don't apply basic economic theories.

i complained about those problems on the titanium edition, and all the vendors supported me and told me it was supposed to look like that? then a fix came out for it, which improved it. but now your bashing your old product which was the best at once your making me fell bad inside for buying the titanium edition now.

I wasnt saying its all some grand scheme by you guys or anything I am merely venting at the fact that A LOT of us dropped 350 or so a month before you guys switched over to the predator series, the same time all the xtec drama was happening. It was not 2 weeks ago, it was like a month or two ago; it was 2 weeks BEFORE release of predators by you guys.

Obviously supply and demand + economics apply to everything we buy, including DDEs. I wasnt disputing this.... I was just venting

Understood, but I don't know who charged you $350. Titanium came out at 299 but we sold for I think $249 most of the time. I could be mistaken, though.

Your input helped create the second version. Unfortunately, I was NOT satisfied with the fix, which is why we gave up hope on Titanium Edition. Like I said, they gave a 10-20% fix when a 70% overhaul was necessary. We are not saying we were in the right giving the product a second chance, but just trying to show that we have made a concious effort to offer top-quality products, despite past mistakes.

I just installed my chromiums. I created a thread of what I liked and disliked about it. Come to think of it, there wasn't that much to dislike. I'm SO glad I went with the chromiums, IMO they look amazing. Here's a link to my thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=279369

Jlevi, how do we specify which version we want (4300k, 6000k, or 8000k)?

Matt, Please call me about this. I'd like to know if we will be custom assembling 8K and 4.5K. If so, I'll be picking up the rings to do the transplants soon.

See you

Those have nothing in common with our product. Those are made by a knock off company. That company actually personally visited with us, looked at our product then knocked it off improperly. Don't buy it.
