He was referring to my facelift coupe halogen projectors. They're already a projector setup, so an HID retrofit should be relatively clean.

Swap the MT in when reverse decides to go.
I couldn't find anything within reasonable distance and with reasonable mileage that had a manual. I only searched a few months, but I really wanted to get rid of my Jeep haha.


In terms of retrofitting my facelift halogen projectors with some nice xenon bulbs (and maybe lenses) do you have any websites I should start looking at. Obviously there's our Lighting forum and theretrofit source, but that's about all I know of.
