Not worth the cost of the package if you don't really want the rest of the stuff. The aftermarket units are simple to install.SpAcEmAn SpLiFF said:theres one 9-2x left in my area, but it doesnt have the premium package. i dont care about leather, but i was wondering if the xenon lamps are worth it?
Some are cheap, some are very good.richie said:How are the aftermarket xenon conversion kits? Do they void warrantee? Do they cause an damage/melting?PHP:
yea i want to wait for one too, but i dont have that option. theres is a grand total of 1 saab 9-2x aero with a manual left in any dealership within 50 miles of me. i cant really be choosy at this point, but i wanted this car fully loaded. if i cant get it the way i want, i might lean towards buyin an acura rsx, which was the car i was caught between with the saab...Methodman said:I wanted the HIDs, and waited till I found a car with one. This being my first car with them, I must say, the light they throw out is awesome. Some people will talk them down, but the coolest thing about them to me, is when I turn them on at night, and the "charge" up. Its hard to explain, but they flicker on, at a low brightness, and quickly get brighter. Pretty cool. The first time my fiance saw them (after some doubt) she thought they were really nice. To me also, it makes the car a bit more classy, adding another difference from the WRX.
The auto leveling is nice too, although I dont change them much. Aegon said the best part..OEM, warranty, no hassle of wiring them up.
Worst case, put a deposit down on the one you found, and keep looking. Make sure that the deposit is refundable (in writing), and if your lucky like I was, you'll find the one you want. Happy hunting, and sorry for the long post.
:roll: $900 cheaper? Factory is like $800+ for each side to retrofit, the premium package is $1400 to get them, but you can get aftermarket HIDs for about $350.qcomdrj said:They run about $80 plus shipping, which is about $900 less than the HIDs are.
