Lightworkz did it in NJ. No error codes...no issues. Amazing output.

For the west coast members there is a another place called lightwurks, if your looking for a package to be installed.

I was looking for someone like lightwerkz after Philly mentioned his install and I found Lightwurks, there is a whole thread about your thoughts on this on the web. The West Coat shop was actually in business first, both places are cool with it.

Maddic I am sure FTB meant ZERO disrespect...he's a totally stand up guy. The company that helped me out in NJ is awesome and I totally recommend them. Output is perfect.

"WTF" is a little strong in a forum where we are all trying to help each other out (and trust me I use it in work situations when neccessary). I have learned from a lot of members here, that are always respectful (and sometimes not... regardless...we are all trying to get the best out of "our cars"). FTB, K-A, Altec, Xtation, and King have all been GREAT sounding boards to improving my cars performances and asthetics. I totally stand by them.

My above comment is toward the product and the company directly, and I have no intention to harm or disrespect any forum members here, including FTB...I dont care who or what company starts out first, but I want to see great products and service out of these two companies.

In fact, I have already checked out the mentioned site, lightwurks just didn't strike a chord with me with what they offer, that's all!

Looks great BPhillyBenz!

I do regret not getting the P2 package when I got my car but I didn't have a choice as the color combo that I wanted was not available with the P2 and I could not order and wait as my lease was over.

I wish there was a company as reputable and reliable as lightwerkz in the So Cal area.
If anyone know, please post up.

Thanks

Maddic I didn't take it in a negative fashion, no problem here. BTW I wouldn't have tried to connect with the west coast company if it wasn't for the positive feedback on HID's from Philly, btw Philly thanks for the note you passed on.

So, the 2011 sport does not come with hockey stick LED's and will look like luxury package?

No...the '11 Sport does come with LEDS's and does not look anything like the luxury version.

Do with it as you please. Thats half the fun...you can always change things back. I have made a lot of small changes...Everyone that has seen the car in person has been impressed...best of luck.

No...you should be fine with the P2 package...not sure of the Kelvin Temperture, however your getting a great package.

This is what I read that they are going to be putting in P2 packages starting in December. My car will already be through production and I just wanted to see if I could swap them in after I take delivery.

Digging up an old post.

BPhillyBenz - now that you have had your HID lights for a month or so, can you please comment on your satisfaction?

Any error codes or electrical issues?

Are they self leveling?

Thanks,

The projectors are perfectly level... as to how they were set up OEM (if thats what you are asking). I took before and after pictures (to compare)....the lights are perfectly focused and much brighter / whiter.

I think question is are they self leveling meaning are there motors that constantly re-aim the lights depending on the pitch of the car based on vehicle load, braking, accelerating potholes, etc. Because of the higher intensity and brightness of HID's - almost all mfr's that I know of (although my mdx being an exception) incorporate a system like this to help keep from flash blinding other drivers. On P2 cars, the lights move themselves up and down to counter pitch movement as well as left and right for turns. I'd also be curious if they are bi-xenon (xenon for low and hi beam)

All this aside - congrats on getting this done. Prices seems really reasonable for what you got.
