Don't you like the HID's? What kit did you go with, I'm looking at upgrading the Headlights as well and only want to do this once.

Projectors are just the style of headlight that allows the bulbs to be aimed with greater accuracy and keep the light more concentrated in front of the vehicle. Basically they keep the beam in front of you, where you actually need it. HID + Projectors make a great combo since you can point the majority of the HID's light where you want it. Hope that made sense lol

If you are looking for someone to retrofit a set of projectors into headlights, I'd check out Jeremy at the Retro Shop. Top notch work and great customer service.

Here are mine he did for me....

I love the HID lights they are very bright and work great at night, I just like the way the projectors look plus like sphincter said it will project the lights out in the direction that you need them too rather than everywhere.

Yep, those are stock headlights retrofitted with HID projectors. I also had the orange reflector taken out while they were getting retrofitted.

Some guys around here have done their own with success, and some with not so much success. Depends on your ability, time, and patience to do the job yourself. Everyone I have seen who used Jeremy has been pleased with his work.

I had 4300k put in, my personal favorite.

Why did you not get them done in blue or black that would look sick.

What was the approx cost of the projector retro?? It looks super nice, and seems like a better/ more reliable solution that the straight HID conversion.
