Re: Retro Projectors?

Need? No.

But it would probably be an upgrade.

Mine are great and I dont have the projectors, just the retro-solutions hids.

If I had it to do over again now that they have the projectors Id probably go that route since it would focus the light even better.

Re: Retro Projectors?

IMO best lighting will be with the '02-04 housings, Hella 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs with our USA 12ga harness. You can also upgrade the fog's with a HIR bulb thats gives 70% output of a Hid. Mod the fog switch to allow use with the high beams. If I can help PM me.

Re: Retro Projectors?

I' going to have to politely diagreed, 55W HIR at 1875 lm is only 59% the output of a standard 35w 4300k HID bulb output (1875/3200)*100=58.59%

In addition, true 55W HID also runs cooler than the standard 55W halogen bulb.

Need, no. A better upgrade, sure. You would want to upgrade to a clear lens lamp as well, that will allow the best performance from the projectors.

Re: Retro Projectors?

How about showing light pattern...if the projectors have a factory Hid style distinct cutoff then they could be a good option using Hids
