GB on Jim P's DDE Gen. 4

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.

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.

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.

you can take a look the instructon:
e46
e36

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 for the offer and pics. i prefer local source and local support. the duty/brokerage will be crazy

by the way, the price is $300 CDN now because we hit our 3 people target.

please pm me or post here if you are interested. the GB will end friday next week and all parts will be pick up sunday next week.
