HID Install on aftermarket Projectors with H1 bulbs!!
I have been reading all afternoon and can not find any information on doing an install with aftermarket projectors!

First all do i just need to the get the H1 hid kit, install and be good to go?
I have heard you need relay harnesses how does that work with the H1, can i get one that will power fogs and low beams?
How is the HID output on the aftermarket projectors i have heard it is not the greatest?
When using a relay harness it only takes the signal from the drivers side, so how do you trick the passenger so you dont get a bulb out warning?

Where should i get my HID kit from? i am in canada so a canadian site would be preferred!

Thanks for all your help!!

Ok so here we go

My retrofit is the Morimoto Mini Projectors (

I didnt do them myself, but I know that these just fit right in to the housing and I think they twist in, its suppose to be really easy.

Okay so as far as the relay goes, you dont need one. With my HIDs I used capacitors right before the ballast, you can buy them on ebay relatively cheap, I have not had any problems with them. You could also do the resistor trick but then you have to splice into your factory wiring.

And as far as the light output, it is much better than stock housings with HIDs, but it takes a little while to get used to the cut-off. The bi-xenon kit that i linked pulls up the cutoff when your turn the brights on. This is what the cutoff looks like

You won't need anything special for the foglights...those are plug and play.

It's the low beam HID's that will drive you crazy. Contact Jonathan at AAC, one of our supporting vendors here to discuss your needs.

Ya the foglights are gonna be easy!
As for the projector cut-off i already have the new headlights in with just a halogen h1 bulb so i know what it looks like and i like it!

I need to know if relays are absolutley neccesary i read in a few places prolonged use with HIDs on the factory wiring can be bad as it draws alot of amps to fire up the ballasts?

As for the resistors and capacitors will i still need them only doing the low beam side? i have read the a 6a//50w resistor between the power and ground of the low beam would be enough would this solve all my issues if i had any?

Where do suggest getting my HID kits from?
