If this has already been done, mods please delete. I didn't see this in a search though. Maybe this should be a sticky:dunno:

HIDs seem to be a popular upgrade for our cars. For those who don't have HIDs, its on their wish list. For those that do have them, wonder what took them so long to buy a set. There seems to be great discussion between stock headlights with HIDs and retrofitted headlights with HIDs behind projectors. Well lets see some pics.

Make sure you post details of your setup and pics

Post:
Brand
What K the HIDs are
What the watts are
Stock/Aftermarket/Retrofitted headlights
Who/where you bought them from and are you happy

Pics to included:
Normal frontend pic (day and night)
Close up on headlight (day and night)
Cut off on a wall/garage door/etc
Street shot looking forward

Id like to get a thread of just specs and pics.:thmsup:
DO NOT POST COMMENTS ON OTHERS SETUPs such as "HIDs WITH STOCK HOUSINGS ARE DUMB" or "PROJECTORS AREN'T NEED". NOT HERE:thumbsdow
If you want to comment on someones setup...PM them

SO...lets see whats out there!!!:banana:

Here's my contribution. :)

TRS Morimoto Mini H1 projectors, DDM Tuning HID kit
5000k HID, 35 watts
Stock, black-housed headlights
TRS/DDM - I am very satisfied with this purchase and investment. My commutes at night are so much more fun! Minus the bugs attracted to the brighter headlights.

Wow someone's got their bases covered haha.

How hard was it working with the S2K projectors? I hear they give the best output but are a giant ***** to work with in 7th gen housings.

s2k are a bitch to work with since there are not mounting holes. I am waitng for S2K-R to come out. To make my life easier.

I am working on a set of FX-R and its a big ass projector. Have to cut up soo much stuff its not even funny anymore.

i actually got butyl when i was doin the retro. but it was a PITA getting the oem glue off so i just reheated it and clamped it on. btw, what do you use to pry apart the clear lens and the black backing? i use like a screwdriver, like a putty spreader thing, and a chopstick to hold it apart (of course after heating it up, i used a heat gun). but i always end up making the edges on the black part all messed up lol

lol You don't want to how much the s2k are. My friend bought them on the forum over at V6P and yeah they weren't in that great shape cuz when I open it there was soo much broken crap. Broken ball joints, crack bezel. damn

I did a lens swap and all that good stuff and it turned out really nice but there is some issue with how the first retrofitter mounted them. Really nasty way to mount the projectors...

So yeah I just end up tweeking a lot of the stuff.

As for the other stuff. I hand built them all just because I wanted to see if I can. lol I am trying to do FX-R right now so that I can swap out my MH1. It doesn't look too great right now since half of the rear housing is gone since the gosh dang projectors are pretty damn big.

How do I?>

I want to install some HID's in my 7th gen with a slight blue tint (kinda like the stock accura HID's but that are still super bright white) I am willing to buy new housing's and the kit, but don't want to spend much more over 300 bucks. I want a clean cut off line like the ones posted. How do I go about starting this project? Products recommended? to avoid? Prefer to black out the headlamps since my car is black. Thank you for your time. :banana:

i think my MH1s give a blue tint when you kinda look "directly" at them. but of course from an angle or youd go blind. i have 4500k so it is SUPPOSED to be white, but a slight tint of yellow. but in the MH1s they give off a bluish tint, probably beacuse of the cutoff.
