Re: retro fit head lights
I did a retro-fit. I just did the low beams with the oldv3 projectors. These things had a serious cut-off.... it was really sharp and looked good. If I did it again, I'd use the moromito minis. the whole kit comes with shrouds etc. The good thing is you only have to make the existing headlight hole slightly bigger. before the mini's you had to dremel out a huge hole in the reflector bowl.....and find a way to secure the projector. The new mini's have a nut on the back that screws on the projector housing from the back. The moromito kit may require a bulb change too. I read Changing your highbeams to HID may have some drawbacks.... they have a delayed brightness(they get brighter as they heat up).....and it's not good to flash'em...I also read HID bulbs actually need to heat up to their operational temp for normal duty cycles. If they don't, bulbs could only last a few months. Ballasts could be damaged too. I just left my halogen high beam bulbs in. I have had a 50W 9006 kit with a relay harness for about 4 years now. Only problem was a relay went bad. no other issues
High beams may be better now, but I highly doubt it lol...u can get a kit for $35 now.
