I can see the price tag of this being somewhere from $600 - $800.

I'm planning on doing my first retro when I can afford it:

- OEM 6th gen housings blackhoused
- Infiniti G35 Bi-Xenon projectors
- LED amber strip/turn signals
- Custom shrouds (or MDX)
- Using my current ballasts with some new D2S 6000K bulbs...

The guy I bought the projectors from was kinda just a random person on there. Not like a reseller.
