Yes. You will probably melt the projector. Either look into retrofitting koito bi-led projectors or retrofit dual projectors (make sure they're very high quality) with 55w bulbs + do a projector retrofit into your fog lights and make sure your headlight lenses are crystal clear

Hi guys, one of my OEM xenon lights is becoming red colour... I'm undecided regarding change these lamps both with noewones, or if change head lights completely (my ones are 15 years old by the way, so are yellowed, etc.). What do you think about this? Do you know any good bixenon aftermarket headlights? Or do you thing should be better change my OEM lamps only?

Thank you in advance

You can always just replace the bulbs with new ones. I did that with my car, and I was directed to morimoto for the bulbs, grabbed a pair of 5500K and been super happy with them.

As far as the lenses are concerned, grab a new set if you want, or just polish your current ones. That will make a big difference for your light output, and the look.

Keep in mind that this is just my suggestion, take it for what it's worth to you.

Thank your about your reply Did you buy your Morimoto bulbs online? If yes, can you link their advertisment/online seller here please? In addition, does these colour lamps appear like OEM ones? And about lenses, did you polish your ones or did get newones? Thank you.

Has anyone taken a look at the new osram CBB's? Few years back I put in CBI's and long story short Im looking at changing them out. Figured Id ask here to see if anyone had tried them out yet.
