Sure thing. I just need to remember to take the pics! Lights are still working great. Although the UV coating on the outside is starting to peal but that's nothing I have done; I'll have to sand them out before Carlisle. I'lll see if I can get pics tonight.


oh yea; these lights are no longer on the 05 Tan ZX4. I bought an '07 ST and they swapped right over :-D

Here are some quick shots of the light throw on the road.....

1) HID low beams ONLY.....



2) HID low beams plus the passenger side halogen high beam (drivers side is out)



I do have them adjusted a little low but its works. Lights are still working perfect. The UV coating is starting to yellow and peel on the OEM covers. Gonna have to take a day and sand em down.

looks realllllyyy nice. I think its best that they are a little low. Since they are so damn bright people freak out and start flashing their highs at you because they are downhill while you're at the top of the hill shining in their face with REALY bright lights.

ill be doing this soon when i get the money. I will be using a different projector though. Something a little better and better. I hope i get the same results as you. I currently have H3 HID's in the anzo projectors and the light output is pretty bad but better than halogen's output lol.

Thanks man. I purchased everything over the course of 6 months so it wasn't too bad. The dremel was the best friend.....plus patience and a steady hand. I'm always happy to give advice also.

Thanks. I've never had ANYONE flash their lights at me, ever. OEM Cadillac projectors are adjusted higher than mine. Just take your time and test fit ALOTTTTTTT until you get it right.

i so glad to see this thread here... i got the exact same projector headlights, and also bought em' from k2.. and yeah, light output its really bad..

i think i'll take the risk and do the same work to mines by following your procedure.
hope i can get the same results as you, if not at least a better light output then what i have right now!!
im really positive that i can do it, and most important, im really patient when doing stuff that i've never done before...

IT JUST LOOK SOO AWESOME!!! GREAT JOB!!!
