took the lights apart the other day. plan on doing a projector retrofit. anyway, i put the oven at 300, and it only took two times in and out to get them apart. If you are lazy and impatient, 300 degrees is perfect. if you are patent, then 200 will work fine
Retrofit the 05+? Put some pictures please!

thats the plan, im still waiting on the projectors themselves. I went with a porsche ECE spec bi-xenon projector set. a little extra $$$, but worth it i think.

i'd really like this done to my car. there's a lot of chrome showing. i think painting it black would look nice with the paint and black parts. it's just too much work for me.

headlights

Do the modified headlights decrease in actuall light on the road? I want to do this mod but I like the amojnt of brightness on the road. I know the chrome projects light more, and when it becomes black, it will produce less light. won't it?

i started this today, i almost didn't do this because of everyone that talked about how hard it was to get the headlights apart, but my headlights came apart really easy, if everything goes this good, this could be the easiest mod ive done yet

Does it decrease the amont of light transmitted onto the street or not? I know it takes away lots of the silver part that reflects the lights so that is why. Let me know!

no, it doesnt effect it. if you look at everybody's pictures you can see that the reflector for the main light is left unpainted. the rest of the 'chrome' is decorative.
