Fellas,

Let me first just say that I'm one of those members - that lurk more then they talk :chevy:, my work and school keep me busy and I'm lucky if I can login once a week and get updates.

So this will be my first time contributing ;).

I'm a proud owner of a 2010 Camaro SS which is Black in color with the white stripes, it does have the ground effects kit and looks sweet. However I opted not to go with the RS package and got the cheap light kit - you know the stock ugly yellow ones :facepalm:.

Anyways - when I did save up the $225-250 I decided to get a proper HID kit, being that this car is relatively new/rare I was unable to find many vendors "reputable" who carried kits. During my search I came across our site member (BFxenon.com) aka Nick. I contacted him and after being convinced he was the way to go I made my order..

Well as happy as I was to see how well built the package was, the more depressed I was when I started to realize this is not a "DIY" job for the average consumer who just likes to drive... :rolleyes:



1) So my first challenge came in contacting BFxenon.com about how to do it, he was very helpful and actually sent me a link to a photobucket account which had detailed pictures of how to do it. As helpful as it was - I just did'nt feel comfortable doing it.

So I took it to my friendly GM dealership who quoted me $100 to do it.

2) Once GM was done, I was super excited to pick up the car with my new HID kit, unforunately however within the first week the right side light went out :mad0260:I was super frustrated and contacted BFxenon.com and :mad0259: to him. To my surprise unlike several vendors - he actually stood behind his products and offered to send me a new bulb, which I receieved in 2-3 business days...

3) With the new bulb i took it to GM, they put it one - and still no worky :iono:, this time they diagnosed it back to a bad relay (right side).. by now I'm frustrated and beganing to understand why its better to pay $$$$ for stock HIDs up front.. with great dismay i contact BFXenon.com again and explain him my situation... he once again calmly offered to ship me a new kit or just a new relay.. I went the relay route and in 2-3 business days I receieve it...

4) So for the 3rd time I take it to GM, and within 10 minutes they had the relay switched out and working great..

Its been over 2 weeks now and everything seems to be working great. My experience with BFXenon.com has been great, I paid close to $200-$225 for the hi-low 8000k kit from him, and the customer service I got was top notch. My car looks great and I encourage you all to buy from BFXenon.com.. as my experience with him over a month has been :thumbup:

Nice!! I intend to do the same at some point, I'll keep BFXenon in mind.

Now all you need is some Halo's and you'll be set. :thumbsup:

100 for the install seems reasonable.

BigMatt 12-17-2009 05:07 PM

Looks great!!

Great review and a great looking car. You got off with a great price (even with paying your dealership) and it sounds like you're happy which is what really matters.

Always good to hear about good vendors with solid customer service!

Great story man. I definitely plan on going with BFXenon when the time comes for HID upgrade.

FutureCamaroOwner 12-17-2009 08:43 PM

Is there halo's in that set-up? Kinda looks like it

BlackWidow 12-19-2009 03:45 PM

Thanks Mod for moving the thread in the right area.. :)

To answer your concers -

1) My car is a 2SS with stock lights. No halo here - just installed the BFxenon.com kit.

2) They charged me $100 only since I bought the car from them and have been going there alot lately for my Chevy needs :).

3) I don't intend on spending any more $$$ on any upgrades to the car.. (for now)

4) I am not in any way related or directly profiting from BFxenon.com - I have'nt even met the guy, just know his name is Nick and its Customer Service is top notch :)
