      From Rodgertherabit

      The box


      Nicely packaged


      The back of the lights


      Installed!!



      And a pic of the R for fun!


      They have FXR projectors and dual turns. I had great customer service with Rodgertherabit AKA Greg. I definitely recommend him to anyone wanting retrofits. The light output is great, 1000000x better than stock. Good cutoff as well.

      PM him here if you have any questions

      These look great! I might have to pull the trigger on a set with dual turns and the Iris projector shrouds. Love it.

      I got some from him too. I agree that the customer service was top notch. He was great to deal with and the price really wasnt too bad.

      I really like the dual turns (i almost got some but didn't feel like waiting for the parts) abd the color scheme. Once again, Roger did an excellent job. They look awesome with the Reflex Silver!

      FXR projectors
      http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=101

      iris shrouds( surrounds the projectors)
      http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...oducts_id=4548

      yep glass lenses. $900 altogether. Could be cheaper is you supply your own lights or go for a different setup.

      Clean! I'm more of the stock look, Do they have any OEM Look?

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.

      They are doing great! No problems what so ever. I think he gives a one year warranty with all the lights he does.

      You can customize what ever look you want. OEM, all black, projectors in high and low. Its all up to you.
