Hid Retrofitters

Anyone know of any good hid projector Retrofitters in New Brunswick. Tried it myself and failed miserably. Closest place I found from theretrofitsource was south of Boston.

Good day. I don't know of any retrofitters in Canada. However take a peek at these guys site. They make a killer product.

Hid Retrofitters

The biggest problem with non local retrofitters is shipping. Buying the product and getting it shipped to you, and then if there is any warranty issues the shipping again.

I won't do any non local work because of it.

Dawson has done lots (raptoretrofits), but that might be some expensive shipping considering he's in the US and the sheer size of the headlights.

Also cross border duty and brokerage.

Stupid question, but why wouldn't you just retrofit the OEM HID's ?

Shipping and duty etc wouldn't be an issue if you ordered from your dealer, and should be pretty straightforward, I'm sure Travis would know for sure.

Unless you're trying to save money....and if you already "tried once and failed miserably", you might already be out some cash, not sure what you meant by that.

That's a great question.

For less money you can have better output lighting.
Even with his mess up, it'll still probably be cheaper.

The OEM parts are ridiculously priced.

I took a set of factory blems and fixed and upgraded for less then the price of 1 OEM light without the supporting parts. Wiring harness, ballast, hid bulb.

The factory OEM set with supporting parts will run you about $2K US last time I checked.

Theres always more than one way to do things, everyone's gotta find their own way with what works best for their situation.
