So, this is the official Round 2 of the Group Buy of a "tried, tested, and true" quality KAIXEN HID kit by NASIOC members. This is just a fresh thread from the first group buy. Many people has been asking me to restart the GB, so here it is.
Original Group Buy thread with TONS of information and feedback can be found here:
Here are some pictures of other cars with Kaixen HID Kits:
4300K (OEM), 5000K (Crystal Natural), 6000K (Crystal White), 6500K (Crystal Purple), 8500K (Crystal Blue).
Less Kelvins (K) has better Lumens (Brightness).
More Kelvins (K) has more Colours.
And finally, the price:
Price is $300 USD shipped. ($10 discount per kit if sent to same address).
We try to keep many kits in stock, but if its not in stock, it may take up to 3 weeks for delivery.
It takes 5 to 10 days for Kaixen to prep the HID kits, and another week or so to have them shipped to me. I will than ship them via Express Post (4 business day delivery).
Total expected time of delivery after GB is complete is 2 to 3 weeks.
Feel free to contact me at any time for questions or comments.
Ok, let me clarify this once and for all for everyone.
'02 ~ '03 WRX (Impreza) takes 9007 application:
9007 is a bixenon application bulb on a bixenon application housing.
Meaning, you do high beam / low beam using one halogen bulb by going from 55 watts to 100 watts.
Why does this matter? - well, by having bixenon application, you get two things:
1. Bulb has to be bixenon (for high beam and low beam)
2. Housing will give off more glare than other counterparts (like H1, and H7).
Fact: Kaixen only has single low beam 9007. Meaning, you will lose high beam function (which is what I have, and dont mind it much - I just honk if someone cuts me off on the road instead of high beamming.
As for glare, you can reduce it little bit by leveling the headlights.
However, as Jimprezza stated .. projector retrofit would be ideal way to go for a good result.
2004 ~ 2005 WRX takes H1 application (most popular).
From the pictures I've seen so far, the Subaru WRX '04 and '05's have the best cut off line I've ever seen on an H1 housing.
Cut off is better than RSX other other H1 housing cars.
And dont worry, you guys use seperate high beam bulb, so theres no worries of high beam / low beam functions.
2006+ WRX takes H7 on projector lens:
Consider yourself lucky. Your car was designed for HID, and it should have HID. You're car is practically begging for it.
Cut off is as best as it can be, and results are excellent.
