and you'll probably pay someone an extra 50 Bucks to install it simply because you're too ignorant to pay less...

No, none of us have received our DDE's yet....they are scheduled for shipment sometime next week. We are all getting a bit anxious.

I'm very sorry. I really am. I understand the anxiety - I have more of it than you can imagine.

I know the product will be good...

Here's go the the latest thread with the latest pics.
We will take delivery *hopefully* based on what the factory said on MONDAY, take pics that night or next and move on it quickly to send them out to you.

I can't tell you how I appreciate this board and the member's patience.

We will make it work:)

Funny little addition to the gent who thinks that all you're buying is some "plastic rings" and some LEDs.

You're very well informed...er...let's do a little quiz...did you know?
Let's look at the virtues of the Gen IV rings:
1) Poly Carbonate
2) Flexible
3) Clearer than OEM BMW
4) Non-deforming
5) Specifically sized barrel openings that are re-engineered to match our proprietary fiber (no longer sourced from anywhere)
6) Poly Carbonate clips
7) 2+ years of R&D
8) Non-heat sensitive

Now let's break them down one at a time:
1) Clearer, stronger construction. They offer sharper edges, cleaner light dispersion, and better quality than their acrylic brethren. Ask around - Poly Carbonate is becoming the NEXT BIG THING for bumpers, windshields, and side glass for cars. WHY? Because it's durable, looks great, and strong!

2) Flexible - allows the Gen IV rings to be used in multiple application without any problems. Almost completely removes that chance they will break during shipment, installation, or handling.

3) Side by side, they are clearer - even cleaner in their dispersion of light.

4) Despite being flexible, they will maintain their "memory" and not deform. For example, when installed into an E36, they require a slight (few mm) of change in diameter (flexible), when removed, they spring back to their original diameter (a few mm). Also, this is important for e46 because they require no glue to be situated - it's all friction fitting - and the friction fit remains throughout the lifetime of the install.

5) We no longer import our fiber, we make it ourselves. Why? Because this ensures that our manufacturing specifications are adhered to. Why is this important? Because the Gen IV rings have a built in opening. No more messing with a clip that "sits" onto the halo and loses light. Just like the OEM 5-series Halo.

6) The clips for the E46 are also poly carbonate - they withstand an insane amount of pressure and will NOT break - even when pliers are used to break them.

7) What's to say, you get better with age and experience.

8) Will NOT deform (some acrylic WILL deform) due to high heat output of headlights.

just wondering.. if u guys gave ur headlights to get this done... what kinda headlights are u using now?...
You don't actually "give up" your headlights to have the DDEs installed for you. You can order pre-installed DDE/ headlamp units, it arrives to your door and you swap the DDE headlamp with your stock lamps and send your stock lamps back to be recycled. Its a little more expensive but its much more convenient and they come with a warranty. E-mail me if you are interested in pre-installed units.

it's only a G including the ballasts and all the other mechanical parts of the lamp. For the lamp housing alone..I believe they are from $169 - $200 each
