i am organizing a group buy for the latest and brightest Generation 4 Daytime Demon Eyes (DDE) from Jim Powell. these are "genuine" Jim Powell's Generation IV "Daylight Demon Eyes" that utilize fiber-optic technology for extra-brightness and dramatic enhancement in ring brightness with new molding techniques and micro-polished reflector facets.

Generation IV updates with flexible halo rings prevent breakage, easier "plug and play" installation, bi-xenon compatibility and four extra brighter "xenon look" rings.
they are selling at $349 U.S. from venders in U.S.

i found a local Toronto source that sells these kits at a good price. The GB price will be as follows:

$320 Canadian + tax – if we get less than 3 people
$300 Canadian + tax – if we get 3 or more

this price is for both E36 and E46. taxes and shipping (if needed) are not included. E36 requires euro ellipsoid headlights which sell separately at special as well.

the kit comes with:

- 8 Injection Molded Halo Rings for quality and clarity. (4 regular halo rings and 4 extra brighter “xenon look” rings)
- Fiber Optic Light Routing.
- 35 Watt Light Output.
- Halogen Bulbs for easy replacement.
- Custom Light Box.
- Custom Design Clips, friction fitted for easier installation.
- Detailed, step-by-step instruction with photos

please post any questions here and i will try to answer them here.

P.S. moderators, please move this thread to the appropriate section if it is in the wrong place. Thanks.

You cant use them without ellipsoids, ZKW ellipsiods are about $650 cad all together shipped to toronto with tax, and customs etc.

E36 will need euro ellipsoids for DDE. ZKW can be purchased through the same source for $590 or $630 Canadian + tax with plug and play connectors. they are also special prices for this GB.

everything will be pickup in GTA. no duty or shipping. only tax is extra.

here is a picture of the xenon look rings. picture credits to its owner. ;)

I have an E46 - Is there any drilling involved?

nope..the same type of install labour thats on the e36, you will need to unscrew diff parts of the headlights though.

you will need to drill a 7/8" hole in the back of the headlamp to route the fiber optics out to the remote light box. The light box is remote to allow it to be positioned to clear cold air intakes and superchargers, etc.

everything is not hard to do and nothing unmanageable. *th-up*

you can take a look the instructon:

If I don't want DDE, can I just get ZKW?

Thanks.

Hmmm, only 3 people for that price? Which is about 205?
If I can ship to one location, I'll beat that price for individuals as long as you order 5 sets:)

Tell me where and when:)

Thanks Sith.

Hey, you video edit:)
What do you use?
Premiere?

I'm using VideoStudio 6 and it's grossly inadequate.

just let you guys know that this GB ends this week.

so, that price is roughly $185.

That's too low for Gen IV - it cannot be Gen IV - because MINIMUM suggested retail price for even 3 kits is $205, so you may be getting hosed - just be careful.

Well, there are only three authorized vendors - I'm one of them. so, if you're getting them from one of the authorized vendors.
that's fine.

If not, then you are getting hosed. Why is it a secret where you're getting them from?

I'm concerned with two issues with this kit:

1- People complain that the fiber optic cable is not long enough
limiting the places we can install the lightboxes.

2- The clips to hold the rings are a little fragile and have a tendency to break easilly. No spares are included in kit.

Have these issues been resolved?
Thx

Your questions are:
1) We send you 2' per fiber - longer than ANYONE. Since we manufacture our own, we are not subject to the whims of customs, shipping, or other problems that arise.
2) The clips are made with a PolyCarbon-aka the stuff they make your glasses with now for them to be unbreakable.
3) I provide you with video installation instructions - no other vendor does that.
4) I provide the BEST support of anyone out there. PERIOD:)

Sounds good to me, How do I order?

Do you take PayPal and How long before I get them?

300$ does that include shipping ?

Thanks
