4 more hours to go. I wonder if any of our C63 brethren on their subforum would be interested and fill up the 2 missing spots...

Ok, so here's some good news and bad news....

Good news: SPYDER listened to us and will be fitting new and improved projectors on these headlights.
Bad news: This pushes back their production by a couple weeks to get their supply all retrofitted.

Sooooo, options are I can still just end the group buy at the arranged time, locking in everyone, or we can extend the group buy a couple weeks (since you all won't be getting your order for a couple weeks anyways) with hopes of filling up even more slots for cheaper prices.

What are your thoughts?

Group buy

I am willing to wait for the upgraded projectors. Are they willing to sell the old "b" stock at even more of a discount since most will wait for the improved projectors?

If so, maybe some would like to bite at the discontinued model.

I am willing to wait, or if the group wants to go ahead... I saw in an earlier post someone that signed up is already bailing. People need to make sure they are in when they sign up as you had said.

Regards,
Kip

lets extend and wait for better projectors. Also with more time we can fill up spots and we can reach our goal.

Yes, same price. You can see the cut offs on the garage picture I posted. These new ones will reportedly have much cleaner cutoffs providing safer and better looking front viewing. That was a main concern of mine as every other suggestions/complaint was cosmetic, but this was performance and safety. Personally, I would suggest waiting a couple weeks for this. What's 2 weeks in comparison to years of better performance (and potentially cheaper pricing with more people we might add).


KIP999 - SPYDER has already shipped their entire inventory back to fit in the upgraded projectors at the factory so I don't think there's an option to buy the current one at a lower price.

They wouldn't be able to import them with the signals blacked out due to Department of Transportation requirements unfortunately.

I'll see about taking more pics of them during the day. Just been super busy recently.

im in for waiting a little more, we're so close to the second price drop im sure the updated projectors will persuade in more buyers i mean we just need 2 more, as long as nobody drops out....

i just realised with 8 more people the price would drop $55 from where it is now... so like $300 for these. Not bad.

I agree. Keep the group buy open and extend it out so we can knock down the price. I'm still in for sure!

Agree to wait. Look forward to the new updates.

I just placed LED markers on the wife's 300 which IMO really look great. I will post pictures.

These can readily be seen in the brightest light and look great.

At the end of the groupbuy, I will pm everyone on the list payment instructions to pay Spyder directly. They accept paypal and credit card. Please pay within 3 days after I send out instructions to not hold up orders.
