 Product Description

***Now Accepting Pre-Orders for the last batch of 2017***

 

The stock headlights on the 3rd-Generation RX-7 are vastly inadequate for night driving. SakeBomb Garage has solved this problem once and for all, and is pleased to provide you with true Bi-Xenon HID Projector replacments for the FD3S's pop-up headlights.


Highlights

  • New headlight housings, with Bi-Xenon (high/low) projectors
  • Optically clear projector lenses
  • High quality 35W weatherproofed ballasts (optional 50W ballast upgrade)
  • New (OEM-spec) D2S 4300K bulbs (5000K SBG bulbs included with 50W ballast upgrade)
  • Plug and play wiring harness specifically designed for the FD3S
  • Detailed instruction manual included


This kit is a complete plug-and-play pacakge: simply remove your stock headlights, trim the headlight buckets, insert the new lights, and connect the harness.

This headlight replacement kit is not your average "cheap H4 conversion" kit. Not only are the raw components expensive to start, there is an unbelievable amount of work which goes into creating each kit. We're confident that once you install these lights on your car, you'll quickly realize why you could never go back to anything else. This kit retains the stock appearance of the iconic pop-up headlights, while bringing the FD3S's nighttime lighting output up to the standard found on today's high-end cars.



Optional 50W Ballast Upgrade

We also offer the option of 50W ballasts (and accompanying 5000k bulbs) instead of the OEM-spec 35W ballasts and 4300K bulbs. There are pros and cons to using 50W ballasts, so please select the kit that best suits your personal preference.

Xenon bulbs are manufactured to run at 35W, however they can be over-driven to produce more light than would normally be available at a lower wattage. Typically there's a 30% increase in total light output, however this extra light does come at a cost: the additional wattage can somewhat reduce the lifespan of the bulbs. The color temperature of the bulbs is shifted LOWER (more yellow) with increased wattage (however the color temperature can be shifted back up to normal, around 4300k, by using 5000K bulbs), which is why we will supply the 50W ballasts with 5000K bulbs. At the end of the day, yes, the total light output is increased, but it does not change the beam pattern with which it is distributed, so you simply end up with a BRIGHTER light, not wider or longer throw. Is this a good thing? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. In the city where streets are well lit, the extra light from the 50w ballasts is definitely welcome, but on very dimly lit back-roads the contrast difference between foreground and background could feel overwhelming to some, and reflector signs will appear very reflective. It is a personal choice whether this increased light output is right for you, but if in doubt remember that the OEM standard is 35W.

HID Lighting 101

Other HID “kits” use the stock headlight housing in conjunction with a Xenon bulb. The positive side, they are unbelievably cheap. The negative side? Typically, these setups:

  • Blind other drivers
  • Have a horrible field of view
  • Severely scatter the light
  • Have uneven lighting with no cutoff
  • Actually WORSEN your night vision (Intensely bright light is thrown in the foreground. This bright light makes your pupils close, causing your distance night-vision to become worse than with your stock halogen lights!)

Projector HIDs on the other hand are what is used in every modern OEM HID lighting setup. Projectors:

  • Have a very even dispersion of light
  • Have a very wide dispersion of light
  • Have a very long throw (with high beams)
  • Illuminate much larger portions of the road while not ruining your night vision
  • Don't blind other drivers, or attract attention from law enforcement
