KC hilites

Thinking about pulling the trigger on a pair of KC hilites. Found them on amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...w_bottom_links

$435 I think is an awesome price, lowest I've found. Since they are $100 less than most sites, are they last years model? Am I missing something? Is it just a good deal?

Thanks

Price went up. I bought them on Amazon a couple of weeks ago for $429. Now it shows $435. It also said it wouldn't ship for 3 to 4 weeks but mine shipped in 6 days.

The LED technology For this application is relatively new. remember when digital lcd watches first hit the market they were priced in the hundreds now they give them away in cereal boxes.
If you must have them now by all means buy but give them a year and the price will drop Also Google the part no. and I bet you can beat the price from another vender. just my $.02 worth

Lowest I saw on eBay was $489. Looked at some other sites and they were around $500 - $529. Amazon is usually one of the lowest.

I could wait 5 or 6 years and get them for less but then I would be driving with dimmer lights for all of that time.

Look at truck lites on discount fleet supply. Price is cheaper and its the same design looks wise. Also ive heard of condensation build up in the KCs. I couldnt be happier with my truck lites

Their price is $412 and the Truck-light has a 3 year warranty versus KC 23 year warranty. KC is a rebranded Peterson.

Read the different forums, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, Harley, and on - they all report condensation issues in LED headlights. Guessing KC, TL, Peterson, JW will also all have some condensation issues.

The warrenty is alot more appealing. I paid 379 for my truck lites but i didnt need the anti flicker harness. Ive never heard of the condensation on anything besides KCs but i do agree is could happen to any light
