I don't think anyone makes the xenon light. I know where you can get some HID lights that are factory mount. Also are cheaper than Metcraft. PM me

Free plug for Jeremiah (above): While I do not own any lights for my illusion (yet) I got 4 speaker cans from him last year and am very happy with them.

I have seen Pat's lights first hand and can say he has a easy install kit (with every thing you need) and the lights are small, vary bright and do not get hot like most.

That site doesn't have prices or a way to order anything. Kind of a waste of bandwidth.

i saw the westwinds this morning and they look great. they also come in extreme green which makes up 85% of the color on my 247. i am waiting to give them a call until later today so those californians have time to wake up.

I agree not having an online store hurts their sales, but I believe they're trying to establish themselves with dealers. If your dealer doesn't sell them, they will sell direct and their customer service is great!

Westwinds developed they're own mounting system, so you'll have to rent a mounting tool from them when installing the lights.

Seems like a little more trouble then having your dealer mount the lights, but trust me it's worth it.

Any rough idea of the price of the westwind lights? If nobody know then I will try and call on Monday and find out.

I don't remember the price, but they were much cheaper than buying the Metcraft lights from my dealer.

Pat M. We took the boat for the first time this year up to Oroville. We come back to the dock after dark and used the HID lights and they were incredible! Just the two of them lit up launch ramp and the shore line from 60 feet out. My wife loved them when she had to put the boat on the trailer in the dark. Super bright!

Thanks.

I'll second that. The HIDs don't blind the driver from glare out of the bow, either. They make all the difference in operating at night.

Wow you could get 8 HID's cheaper than that e-bay thing. Thanks everyone for the good shouts on the new HID lights. I am looking for a website designer that will redo my whole site and add shopping cart. Right now I am concentrating all my efforts on getting into my shop. Opening May 1st. Giddeeeeyyuuuup.

Jeremiah,

Do you have mounts for the HID lights for non-illusion towers?

Congrats on getting your business to the point where you can open a store! Thumbup.gif

I will custom make one for you if you tell me what you want. I am working on a 3 and 5 light hid bar right now. Hopefully it will be done by mid may. If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know. Like I did with the HID illusion x by sending out some free ones for feedback and advice I am willing to do with this new product as well. Help me and I will surely help you. No I wasn't calling you shirley.

Problem being is my cost to make these is a little pricey. I don't have much room to play with from my cost to MSRP. I just want to get people a better product at a hopefully affordable price. As you can see HID is expensive. Compare halogen bulbs in a store and then call a dealer to get pricing on HID bulbs. It is almost 10 times the cost. This is where I have to keep prices low to compete with westwinds and metcraft. Soon I will compete with all the companies once I produce this lightbar.
