Bi-xenon projector retrofit

Finally had time to do the retrofit. Had the parts lying around for a month. More pictures to follow, got to go christmas shopping! No problems so far, even managed to tackle the bulb error codes with 50W 6OHM resistors.

I kept my original high beams in, with some Philips diamond vision bulbs to match the 6000K HIDs. Now I have double the hi beams, cant wait to light these up tonight.

I'm going to make a detailed how to with tonnes of pictures next week end. The hardest part of the retrofit is getting the headlight lens off. Once off, the retrofit is 80% done. I'll be sure to share all the tips and tricks to get the lens off without mutilating and destroying the headlight.

I used Morimoto Mini H1's.

P.S. Double hibeams at night = daylight
