Normally for UPS ground orders once the label has been created they pick up the next business day (meaning today) this is how it works for my business unless we drop our boxes off at UPS.

Correct, you do disconnect parts of the headlight exterior to gain access to the interior, they are factory removable parts, so the headlight is not ruined or altered, and they bolt right back on using the same factory screws, no glue is required.

Some are and have asked or suggested if they (JDP) come up with a kit for non-RS lights they would jump on but obviously that would probably require the lights to be taken apart. The first post from JDP tells what this mod consist of.
Someone even said they have their front bumper off in wait of their kit to come and I'm not sure if that's really needed or necessary since it is, by Jeremy's statements of just tapping and connecting their harness.
Sorry if I was misleading, I didn't mean to if I was, but you do have to remove the front fascia, both headlights, and open the headlights through the factory removable "doors". Unfortunately, there is no possible way to dependably get the factory white LED to change to multiple colors with wiring, though that would be cool!
One of the beauties of this kit, is that you do not have to open the headlight in any way that was not designed from the factory, leaving the factory lens seal in tact and unbroken.

Installation consists of removing the front fascia, removing both headlights, mounting the halo control box, installing the wiring harness, mounting the interior LED and switch, replacing the factory LED inside the headlights, plugging everything in, and enjoying your new light show!
There is no splicing or soldering required, the whole harness is plug and play after the components are installed.

Thanks!
- Jeremy

Let's see, I was part of the Pre-order, I have not rec a UPS tracking number or response from JDP. I just put my bumper BACK on yesterday because I have no idea when this item will arrive. Have a car show this weekend and was hoping to install. definitely not happening now.

They have mentioned several times that they are shipping them as the orders were placed. It depends where in the pre-order you were, middle? end etc.. They shipped about 10-15 units and will ramp up more each week.

So we do have to pull out the existing halo light and replace it with something different? Now I'm confused..

Feature #1
Utilizes the factory halo rings (has a clean, smooth stream of light)

Maybe I just don't get it. I'll have to wait for the video I guess. I probably won't get mine for another few weeks as I just recently ordered mine. Guess I'll see how others do it.

The light for the halos is created by an LED.
The halo you see when looking at the headlights is just a tube with an LED at the end (or LED's).
The LED is replaced but the tube stays in place. It isn't like a Cold cathode tube where you replace the whole tube.


Hope this helps.

That helps greatly actually. Thanks so much. I'm just not mechanically savvy so I got worried about it hah.

My understanding is we remove the headlights, open the access doors on the back of the headlights, remove the factory LED's should be very simple put he new RGB LEDs in hook up the wiring harness, mount the control box put headlights in put bumper back on turn the lights on

Just got my package in, the Build Quality looks to be superior and instructional CD looks promising.



Edit: The added CD includes written instructions and a video of how to do it. It appears that every base was covered very nicely during the video.
