Here you go:

http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=101

I bought the 1.0 version which was much cheaper. Love these. I was never left wanting more than what these offer.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/FXR-FX-R-Gen1-1-0-Bixenon-HID-Retrofit-Projectors-pr-/170843762539?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item27c714ef6b&vxp=mtr#ht_2143wt_1269

The gif doesn't do it justice. I'll take a better picture later so you can get the idea of the range it offers. My HIDs are white, but for some reason they come out a bit blue in pics.




Credit all goes to Chris, of course. Razz

You can modify any lights! I modified aftermarket lights before I did this DIY... that's where those bright output pictures came from.



I know the head lights you have now, those were in fact my first projector lights. I never opened those up though, but you can easily replace that projector with a better bixenon.

LOL... yes it was hugely bright, and the highbeam stretched forever. But I did remove these lights, partly out of courtesy for others, hence why the next lights only had a normal pair of projectors, not 4.

How do you mean "ruin it"? When using a projector, you can paint the entire head light black if you wanted to. Not sure how painting would ruin it. My light up there^^^ is painted. I also painted inside the fog lights black.

but bro em not using projectors first i was going to buy bzt head lamps because they were so cheap that they sold out and now the ones that are here are very expensive so was thinking of painting my bezels black instead of getting complete lights so will the light rays of the halogen bulb be affected if the bezel is painted black

Ah cool, I see now.

Have no worries! You can very easily paint that outer bezel section with a flat black to get exactly the BZtouring lights.

Here is a picture of the ones I opened, you can see the black section is completely separate from the reflectors for the halogen bulb.

I love driving at night! Even without any real modifications to the lights, just bulbs. The white HID reflectors and yellow HID fog projectors put out so much light. But I got stuck driving my mom's van at night on Friday... and those old halogens are so hazed up that no light comes out! I can't even tell the lights are on lol. So I hope you can get it restored soon, since driving without good lights is no fun.

I agree, driving with dim lights sucksssssss. I had these blue bulbs in my car for a while, they were good with my circular aftermarket headlights (ones I got on again), till I got in an accident and had to get these square aftermarkets, output was terrrrrible. As of now my driving lights are good, my brights kinda suck. I'm thinking of getting a xenon upgrade and getting some fogs somewhere on the bumper.

The circular lights like in your sig were the first ones I had, they definitely had better output than stock, even with white bulbs. Time to retro! Very Happy
