Rep to the awesome job you did with your retrofit. I would love to get that done on my car. How long total did it take you and what was your total cost? Would you be interested in doing another set and if so, how much would you want for them?

In this album, the first pictures are the headlights right out of the box and in my car. The last pictures are after my retrofit was complete. Patience was the key thing; taking small amounts off with the dremel and test fit after test fit after test fit but it all worked out.

Thank you. A good amount of time went to fitting everything just right and taking my time. For the total, maybe $400-450, an estimate. But that's money definitely not spent all at once. I bought the original headlights around Christmas time, then the HID kit a month later and then purchased the retrofit materials over the course of the spring and summer months. As for doing sets for fellow members, Im really not sure I could. This project was something i jumped into blindly and just went with it but it happened to work out. I'm not sure i could replicate the results on another set. I know Unique Coatings is a professional lighting expert and could definitely help you out with a retrofit; and of course I'm hear to give advice also.


UPDATE 2/28/10
Headlights are still doing great. I need to take some time this summer and refinished the plastic covers because they are starting to peal; happens to all headlights I suppose. Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Do you think once all this snow and crap clears out of the area you could take some road pics with just lows and lows and highs together? Would love to see how they actually look on roads.

Sure thing. I'm hoping this weather breaks soon anyway!

I know this is bringing back an older thread but any chance of getting some on-road pics of just lows and lows and highs together?
