a Retro is doing something that is not ment to be done. So NO, you can't do one in a 4th gen unless you want to. In the world of Tuning anything can be do with some creativity and lots of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

i have only seen a couple done on 4th gens. looks ok. IMO the 5th gen headlights look better with retrofits because of the shape. heh.

manufactures already make projectors for the 4th gens so it would be easier just to pick one of those up then to retro fit.

Ive heard the projectors you can buy from shops are designed to be used with oem style bulbs and do not give the correct light cast or color and therefore would need to use HID projector lenses for them to work...

Then buy the projectors pre-madeand then bu a Plug-N-Play HID kit.

can't. the projector headlights they sell are for halogen bulbs like prelhdeh22vtec was saying. i don't know of any manufacturer that makes their aftermarket headlights with Xenon projectors in them.

u could buy the cheap projectors headlights off ebay or something and then go buy the xenon projectors seperately, open up the headlights, take the halogen projectors out and mail them to me, and then put the xenon projectors in. but i wouldn't trust the quality of aftermarket headlights with xenon projectors.

those aftermarket projector headlights are good for ~3 months...then it starts cracking, fogging...plus retrofit 1 pc JMD headlight is alot sexier...

Thats exactly how i'm thinking. no offense to anyone here who has the projector that you buy off ebay, but i think they look like shit compared to the jdm lights.
