The universal-fit LUF-BD4.2 is available for audition in LEAR’s HK retail shop and can be pre-ordered by emailing [email protected] or through official LEAR dealers. Order fulfillment will start on February 15th. Customers who pre-order before 10th of February will get an extra LEAR C2 cable (black or clear, worth USD$60/$65) for free or enjoy a 10% off discount of any DIY LEAR cable.
Pricing is set at HKD$9998 (USD$1400) for custom-fit LCM-BD4.2 and HKD$8888 (USD $1260) for the universal-fit LUF-BD4.2 with free international shipping except to countries with official LEAR dealers.
