If I wanted children, I'd find a nice girl and make my own. Bye.


Buy a code reader and do it yourself or pay some garage to do it.

Thanksgiving weekend maintenance - got car back from body shop after having some dents taken out, pressure washed engine bay, replaced idler and tensioner pulley, replaced (again) upper and lower intake boots, changed power steering, rear differential, and manual transmission fluid, new air filter, then washed, clayed, and polished.

Yea flash is gone, but I still have my OEM lows which are bi-xenon (still a highbeam technically)

For the wiring you have to wait a week. I plan to run a wire harness to the battery and use the trigger wire going to a switch so I can turn on these lights manually.

Can't be that hard. Already deleted the washer tank and the SAP. And I have swivel extensions and an impact wrench. Can't be any harder than pulling the intake manifold or changing the engine mounts.

I'd just get rid of the cutoff shield and run them as normal highbeams lol. Jake, was it a labor intensive job or did you get something that was a plug and play job (in terms of fitting the projectors and shrouds).

Yah, I have the similar setup on the lows.
Still need to get the projectors for high beams(already have the shrouds and HID kit). Will the OEM projectors fit on the high beam bowls?
I believe you have done retrofit on your lows as well.
I have OEM bixenon retrofit(with the bixenon bowls) on the halogen housings with cheap HID kit(I know, will upgrade the bulbs soon). Bi-xenon projector function connected to the high beams for now.
Also, I would like to see where are you mounting your ballasts for both high and low beam.

The first shroud was a pain to file down (took an hour+ manually) For the second one my friend has a Dremel with the sanding end so it took 10 min lol





Still working on how to wire it to a separate switch. They also point down a bit but I'm not sure to how to raise them.
