Uhh... your "question" is kind of vague. What are you asking for, exactly?

EDIT: Maybe I read too fast.

How do they work?
With a quad-bixenon retrofit you will get 4 projectors, 2 for each headlight. Each projector will have 2 states, low beam and high beam. Everything should come prewired from Lightwerkz so it's essentially "Plug and play"

Are they worth it?
It depends. Do you want to spend that much money on 4 projectors? The light output is honestly not going to help you see better at night. A pair of projectors will be sufficient. Have you ever seen a stock car come with quad-bixenon projectors? No? There you go.

That would be a question for Lightwerkz.

They are one of the best in the business, you can't go wrong with the product.

Give us a call, we've done hundreds of projector retrofits at this point and offer good prices.

Once again, a question you should pose to LIGHTWERKZ. They can modify your headlight housing to suit whatever taste you have. If you're talking about bulb color, 3000k (really yellow), 3500k (yellow), 4300k (std HID) 5500k (pure white) 6000k (ice blue)

^^ this man speaks the truth. going with anyone else for lighting retrofits would be settling for second best.
