i'm using e55 bi xenons they are really big & bulky for the sol headlight so they are extremely hard to fit in there. i eventually plan to upgrade to the 1 piece headlights & some s2000 projectors but that wont be for awhile til i finish my turbo.gxsx said:damn, im jealous, they look real good on your car. what kinda size projectors did you use?
also, btung, is that guy still selling them?
well ballast and bulbs was about $200. projectors were $120ish. custom clear lens were $60. wires/inline fuses/misc spade connectors/bolts were another $35ish. when i did my retro there wasnt aftermarket headlights available so i had to buy the clear lens. e55 projectors and e46 projectors are usually the cheapest but the better ones like tsx/tl/s2000 projectors are close to twice the price of the e55s ect. the only thing that separates them is the size, diameter, and the type of lens which makes the cutoff more clear. also you would need the new headlights without the fluted lens because mine killed the cutoff big time.gxsx said:holy crap man 850!?!? if it wre 450 i woulda bought them.. but daaayyyuummm.
liquidtek, how much did it cost you to do all lights?
believe me its not as unique as before lots of people have started doing it now. a year ago when i did it there was a handful of sols now there are prob closer to 20 retro'd. also yours will prob cost more like $600 because you'd have to buy those new headlights with clear lenses.gxsx said:15 hours... and 400+ dollars. the price to pay to be unique..
i'd love to do it, maybe after i get the engine swap put together and done...
