new headlight group buy

I was emailing @t8ups about a set of the headlights he did on here as a group buy. He said to start a new group buy he will need to see how much intrest there is for this as he needs at least 10 buyers to get a good deal for him and for the buyer.
I have started this thread so people can put there name down and @t8ups said he will up date it later or tomorrow with prices.
Im not sure if im aloud to start this thread or if a moderator has to. So if ive overstepped what a nember can do then ill leave it up to @t8ups to start a new one but if not ill start it of.

AND before you scoff at the price i think if you call up audi and ask for ONE new headlight (yes just the headlight... keep in mind these come with new ballasts) you will be surprised at the value of these
 
I do remember reading the original gb posts and i recall that being said about the price and that if you went to audi they where very dear. I have saw pictures of the headlights @t8ups did and im well impressed with them and better than the original ones to.

I got a set on the original grub and are definitely worth the £400+ they were I’m even thinking of getting any set made for my mk5 r32 after Xmas

Noggies ruuuule!
Just my luck there is now a group buy! I got back from Trups' garage on Saturday with brand new uprated bi-xenons fitted and they have actually changed my life. Amazing difference. And Trups is a very nice bloke too, so all in all, top quality headlights and a very pleasant fitting experience too. Wish I'd got them sooner!

I got these in the first group buy and they are very much worth the price. Be aware that you are getting a pair of custom designed, hand-built units which contain some of the best xenon components out there. As mentioned above, try pricing up the standard (poor output) headlights from an Audi dealership near you, and find out what value for money these baby's really are.

I still grin everytime I turn the sun back on at night, using the highbeam setting on my 20-year old hatchback :D

I think we’re at 6 at the minute with the 2 that removed their names from the list as follows:

1. Hydro s3
2. warren9022
3. Chromag
4.Neso s3 (AUS)
5. Basil brush
6. Maz

I personally think it’s a no brainer with all of our headlights knocking on 20 years old and people on fleabay wanting upwards of £250 for full used sets with ballasts (that may or may not work and if they do probably won’t for much longer!!).

I’ll have them whatever happens, just be nice to get the housings a bit cheaper. I want to be able to tell people my 17 year old car has got bi-xenons :tearsofjoy:

I'll be punting my old ones on as well on eBay. Knocks the price down on what we pay for the new ones. If it means we're only paying £2-300 it's money well spent. Not sure if everyone is factoring in the cash they'll get for their old lights.......

Totally agree, my xenons have never missed a beat and they’ll go on eBay when I’ve fitted the set from @t8ups, I’ll be realistic about what they’re worth though and anything I get for them will be a bonus. I know people are different and each to their own but I like to try and fix a problem before it actually happens. With it being my daily I can’t afford not to.

Good point, I did not see people that removed their names.

Ian has found a few chaps on them FB groups but they struggled to join the forum so have asked to email me so I can list names on here so we could have the 10 that we need sharpish.

As the brackets are now done in the UK there will really be no lead time as long as there are not 50 different paint opitons been needed they can be a quick turnaround.

Thanks @t8ups, no paint options for me. I want them to look as OE as possible.

Hopefully Ian will get us the other 4 :grimacing:
 
What are the paint options for them? They will definitely make a difference and as said the money i get for the old lights will offset what i pay for the new ones.

I will put this groupbuy on our Facebook to see if we can get your other 4 people. Also @t8ups if you know someone that has signed up to the forum, there first post should be the welcome section.

Have posted in the Aussie group @Sandra so the 4 could be easier than expected to round up. Depends how serious they are.
Hey Ian, how are you? If they are going to join you just add their names on so that Trups knows his numbers. :) x

yes Full headlight ready to install if you have xenons fitted already if not your wiring might be different and you need the range/level sensors in the wheel arches and the box that controls it all to make them work properly

I'll start the ball rolling.......

Labour and housings (already paid for the lamps etc) plus new set of headlight motors please, no paint options.

Haven't got a clue how bulbs are rated so I'll leave it up to you @t8ups , 95% of my driving is around town.

Thanks for all your help.
