I've been looking at the Ebay projectors, but they can't take HID bulbs.

The JDM projectors are just a little too expensive.

SoOoOo.....

Does anyone have any past experience with Retro fitting projectors in general, that could shed some basic knowledge upon us?

All info and advice are greatly appreciated.

It was a while back i did this, but if i remember correctly....I cut the low beam wire off of the headlamp harness to run that to the hid.







Found some old pics. I know i spliced or cut the low beam wire but i cant remember. If i did it again it would come back to me.

Edit:

OK, i cut the low beam wire from the headlamp to the light bulb socket. Ran that wire for power to the hid ballast. Then i spliced the ground wire and ran that to the ballast as well. Done. PLug in factory harness to headlamp harness, then connect the two wires for the hid. The light spread pic is old, i did adjust the focus after that pic and it is better than that.

Some pics from camera phone.

Yeay! Finally found someone who has done this!
Hey, did you also have to go w/ the H3 bulb? We bought the oem H4/9003 bulb, but it didn't fit. We were told we need H3 for projectors.
Thank you!
