Hi everyone, newbie here
I'm 3 weeks in my CPO RX400h fully loaded except for ML audio system and towing package.
My previous car Scion tC with Tein SSP pillow ball mount coilovers with EDFC control on 18" OZ titan with Kuhmo 225/40/18 Z rated high performance tires and a custom retrofit quad HID bixeon setup , major upgrade in size and class due to our 3 months old baby, we need more room, ride comfort and a little class for the family.
it has detail on how the quad hid setup was born, this is all written by Larry Wu, aka littodevil. My friend who is going to do another retrofit for the 400h. He did a quad hid setup with hyper ballasts on his Camry Hybrid.
Yes Larry shares his shop in San Francisco area with his dad who owns a high end body shop and mechanic shop back to back so he has access to every machinery and paint booth. He is not cheap but as you can see he is very detail give the retrofit a very OE look instead of a home brew hack up and ugly glue job.
Yea, I like how detailed he does his job. The enclosure looks very clean and flush. I guess I'm going to have to make a drive back down. It would have been nice not to move hahaha...I use to live in SoCal so it's closer to San Fran than here.
LEXveryG8, not to worry, I live 20 mins away from Larry just wait until he is done with my set as a prototype so he can have a production version for the RX crowd should they decide to get it from him. You can always ship him a set of headlights for him to work on when the production version of the retro is release. He can ship back the complete product + harness. For now he is designing mine so we can have a production version for the RX. Like I said before he is not cheap, expect to pay around $2200 or more for the retro and the more options you want, the higher the price, it's pricey and it's not for everyone, I got spoil by the first set he made for me and I'm going back for a 2nd set, different car. I've seen a couple of $4000 job and a $6000 job from Larry before, it's crazy cool and very OE look. At one time he planned out a 12 projector setup for his Pantera.
That's great to know he will be willing to ship. The price doesn't concern, but it's the job, and reliability that I was concerned at first. Let me know how it turns out because I'm interested, and I wouldn't let just anyone touch my car unless I know them specifically or the job they have done.
