REDOVAL: Have you looked at any of the auto-leveling conversions out there?

I know hella has a kit (not cheap, but also not prohibitive, though US availability is non-obvious). There are also a couple of semi-dubious things that may or may not be real on alibaba. -- Just took another look at the stuff on alibaba, it really looks like someone just added the the words "auto-leveling" to non-projector conversions, which is of course complete bunk....

MadScience-

I have not considered any of the OEM transplant auto units for these conversions as the cost and R&D to make them work properly would be staggering. I would not even consider an aftermarket unit that has that feature as it will fail in short order (all those types of features are warranty time bombs). I will be offering a bi-led projector setup soon after I do a bit of testing to check the validity of the product.

The new coupon code for July worth 5% off is "JULYSMB"

Thanks! I guess that confirms that that stuff is not ready for prime time....

Kind of sad, it seems to work fine in actual OEM applications. One of our cars has headlights that do the adaptive cutoffs and will shine into curves. It's absolute fantastic.

My parents bought a new Subaru with the adaptive lights and they do work nicely, thought they can be problematic and very pricey to repair when the time comes. I'm sure the aftermarket will catch up sooner or later. I tend to lean towards very simple items as they tend to last longer and have fewer failure points for potential warranty issues.

New Promo code is available for August. Use code AUGSMB for a 10% discount on any purchase (with the exception of the light set in the post above). We expect to sell quite a few units this month so we will ask our customers to be patient as the lead times may vary slightly depending on parts availability. If there are any questions regarding builds or component selections, post up here or shoot us a call to 424-250-0270. Thanks!

Coupon code for the month of September is SEPTSMB. We will be putting LED projectors into our van lineup as an option in the near future for those not interested in the HID variants. More to come...
