who to go to for a retrofit?

Hey guys I have an 06 sedan and I wanted to put some projectors and instead of buying thr cheap eBay shit I decided on a retrofit. Now my question is who should contact about getting em done, many people would suggest on doing it my self, but I'm just not to mechanically Inclined to be tearing up my headlights and doing it my self. Also how much would I be looking at to get this done and possibly even halos. Thanks for the help in advance.

First question: Where do you live?

If you're in the US and don't mind shipping (unless your local to some), there are some resident retrofitters on the forums that can help you out like LFSoccer2k6, KingMooCow, and thisaznboi88 to start naming a few.

I live in the Chicago land area, a local would be great because this is my dd and would not be able to have the car sit while it is getting done unless I purchase a new pair which would be $150+ while my originals are in great condition.

Well, LFSoccer2k6 is down in St. Louis, so that's about a 3-5hr drive (depending on traffic, your driving habits, and how often you need to stop). You might be lucky if he has spares laying around. If he does, might be able to just do a trade/swap once the retro's done.

If you do have to buy another set, at least you can sell your non-retro headlights to recover the costs.

Not sure of any others, but KingMooCow is in Atlanta, GA which is next to Florida.
