My ST170 retrofit progress thread.

Okay here are my chrome St170's (aka facelifts) that I am retrofitting with projectors. This is a progress thread, so bear with me til I'm finished with them.

Now, onto some pictures!







This was on the inside of the headlight lens. I cleaned it up so I don't have to deal with it anymore!



Testing out the E46-R Extended shroud



...and OEM E46 shroud that I removed the chrome from.



...and the E55 Replica shroud.



And a little teaser for you guys.

Actually the whole reason why the output wasn't great to begin with is because the bulb wasn't sitting flush with the projector. After you trim the base of the bulb it fit's great and the cutoff is straight and hotspot is centered.

I got the projectors from The Retrofit Source. It's called the Morimoto Minis, but it's also called the Mini H1. The H1 HID kit that is needed I got from DDM Tuning. This retrofit was less than $200 total.

Just make sure that the projector can bolt into your housing. So far, I know it fits H7, H4, and 9006.
