Came across stupid priced Depo Gen IV - worth it?

Hey!

Just happened to come across Depo Gen IV euro projectors for $99 from DDM Tuning.

Anyone ever deal with this company before? There was a good discussion about whether they are legit product or not; but I'm thinking to myself (being the cheap ass that I am) that for $100 how bad can they be? They also sell the Apexcone's for $100 too.

Just not too sure how reliable the company is. Can anyone chime in?

I was reading through the threads on BF and these are apparently real depo's. DDM gave the contact number and even included a fellow BF member in on a sales call to Depo's Manufacturer Rep.

Definately worth it, I know it seems to good to be true, but the prices have been droping steadily on E36 lights for the past year, its just this is what it has come to.

it was 48$ for shipping plus taxes and duties and other crap i think was another 10-20.

hes not gonna give u guys a group buy price cause his prices are already low. there is no way hes gonna sell it for less then whats posted on his website already.

+1. DDM/APX/Understeer won't do GB's on those rock bottom prices. Those are priced so low to begin with just grab them if you really want them.

Oh, and as for starting a GB on MaX, good luck with that You'll have 1239120 people saying they're in, and maybe two might actually put down a deposit.

Just to double check, the Gen 4 Depo's are the ones that have the black surround at the projector?

None have black surrounds at the projector, that's a mod people do.

Hey Karim,

thanks for the chime in. Didn't see the depo gen iv's on your website. Can you provide any information about what would be included with your lights and what the shipping would be like?
