08+ Projector Headlamps

Does anybody make a '08+ projector headlamp without the HALO and LED lights?

I like the look of the projectors, and I like the light throw, but I don't like the idea of splicing into the wiring of the car to make them work, and personally, I don't care for the look of the HALO or the LED's. Not to mention the fact that the reliability of those two features is not the greatest.

Thanks.

You can always wire the halos to the battery with a fuse and switch inside the car so you dont have to splice any wires. The only head lights for the mk2 is the anzo headlights in two styles from what i know.

It's not only that I don't want to splice, but I don't like the looks of the HALO and LED lamps. I'd ratrher not have them at all.

I want dark headlights to get rid of the chrome ones and can pick up a couple of nice black '09 coupe headlights, but thought it wold be nice toi have projectors. If I can't find a plain projector headlight I will just go with those.

Sadly, the only projectors available for the 08+ have the halo. I would say just don't hook 'em up at all(usually individually wired), or You can do a "bake n break" and paint the inside of the housing, and over the halos.

Also with the blacked out ones you found without projectors you could also bake n break and retrofit some projectors with shrouds so it looks better. If you're wanting hid the anzo ones won't do it. They are designed for halogen lights.

I have them, you don't have to splice a single bit of wiring. It's all plug and play. You plug the same cables into the same spot except for the halos and LEDs. the side marker connector plugs into those. The only tool you need is a socket wrench lol. It's sooooooooo easy for such a dramatic change. Let me know if you need anything.

Sabersport, ask for "Sam"

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2008-...#ht_3447wt_995

they were very good with me, I talked it down to about $280 cause I live close to their warehouse. They were recently moving warehouses so I'm not sure if they're still located in the same exact place. But The only thing I had to try was turning the connector around because my led's didn't all light up. It took maybe 10 seconds to do haha I've never done any sort of car work before either lol so you'lll be able to figure it out. There are some great write ups on here for them.

You just don't have to connect them then lol. It's a small connection. It uses the side marker plug to connect so just tape the wire to the headlight out of the way I guess. They actually grew on me a ton once I got these. The halos are super bright. Everything reflective ahead of you gets a slight purplish blue tint with them. It looks cool I think :)
