Quad Projectors in Facelift Coupe! I think im the first!

Hey Guys
So I finally met up with my friend who did the retrofit for my coupe headlights.I only have a couple shitty pics right now, but when sun comes out tom be prepared

Following was done
1) Swap out oem projector lenses for clear lenses, The cut off and the light output is so much better
2) Swap h7 projector from another e46 halogen headlights that i had into my high beam
3) Remove the plastic lens on reflector and just leave the reflector.
4) Fix the headlight trim that some *ss ripped off.

We tried to put in the fxr projectors but no luck on that the e46 facelift coupe headlights shroud is way off. Buttt he is going to work on them on free time and hopefully i will be the first to retrofit fxr into e46 facelift coupe ;D

Nice job.

I want to see them in person. Where in Toronto are you, I'm in T dot as well.

I need someone to do the same for me or at least teach me so I can do it myself

looks good! I know halogens provide a good contrast for other drivers when flashing, do the projectors still provide that? it looks like they're different temperatures

Im just running h7 halogen projectors from another facelift coupe light that i had. My low beams are OEM bi xenon that i had on the car originally just had a clean lens swap on the projector itself. In terms of the high beam proejctor yes it provides really good contrast. My high beam projector is never on though i have my drls disabled and i never use it since i have bi xenon.
