I am happy to ship to the US and will get a quote for that before confirming any accepted offers.

Actually, I lied! :-) It's $1600 each with the leveler kit, etc. $1250 for the assemblies themselves.

I wonder how hard this installation would be? You'd have to take it to dealer afterwards to have it coded?

It would work if you didn't put the headlamp washers?

So the install is about a 45 minute deal with tools ready - plug and play. You'd need to have the dealer do a XENON=PRESENT code on the car.

US Spec cars with Xenon's are fitted with washer and leveling systems by law, but they will work fine without either. Levelers are a PITA to fit, simply 'cause the sensors have to be wired (not in the existing harness). Washers look to be a right pain in the arse, but I've never actually tried to do it.

The above said, I know ton's of people who have retrofitted Xenon's on US spec cars without washer and levelers, and never had any problems or issues.

Great price. Can't find a good set for less. I'm in the process of purchasing some commercial property and I must show restraint. Great opportunity for someone.

the way things are at the moment,

buy your property, get some decent return in by way of rent then come back and buy the lights when you have seen some decent profit. They'll probably still be here.
