Yeh, Like give us a clue what you want guidance on.

Because HID 'kits' are garbage and projector retrofits give off awesome light output, great cutoff, and cool colors, and theyre like a jillion times better than stock lights.

so what exactly do you want to do? you want to retrofit your headlights or do you want to put projectors. like these by the way, the output on these things suck trust me. they give your car a cool look at night but for vision their out put is really bad.

OK, can't you put the projector assembly from the BMW into the housing of the above lights to use the better quality projectors?

You could, but it would be more difficult. With a standard reflective housing, you can just make a hole, bolt the projector in, and use the housing adjustment screws to adjust the beam pattern. With those, you have a lot less room to work with and you have to adjust it using a bracket instead of the stock mount points.

Thanks bro.
Unfortunately...I got into a car accident and smashed the headlgihts.
Anyhow, I'm in the process of something crazier than before....

I'm definatley doing the projector turning signals and moddified 05+ S2000 low beams, but I can't decide between modded S2000 projectors or modded TSX highbeams.

I'll let you guys know when it's done...
