Hi. Just thought I would shed some light on this new project I am doing. This week I am going to install BMW X5 Projectors into my headlamps.

Most people have no idea that just the Projectors in projector headlights determine the entire beam pattern. It has nothing to do with other internal parts(reflectors, etc.) that you see. My point is that with projectors mounted into my housings, I will finally have the wide factory HID beam pattern and blue color I have wanted for the longest time...And maybe once I show you my results, some others may do projectors.

Here are some pics of the uninstalled X5 projectors.

I like! I have been looking for somthing to do to my headlights. I do like the M5 lights. Are you doing high beams and low? Are these the ones with the light ring around them? What kind of $$$ are we looking at here? I have been thinking of the mercedes projectors. I like how they look like gun barrels pointing out! Could this same thing be done with the Mercedes lights?
Later!

I'm just doing the lowbeam part. Nope, they don't hvae the rings around them. It may be possible with the mercedes projectors...Show me the ones you are talking about...

UPDATE!!:)

I finally got my headlights back today from the guy who couldn't install them... I removed the glass and it looks better than I thought. I think I will like it better than with the glass...Here is a link to a huge version of the pic you see showing the difference...May take a while to load...Pic(s) don't do justice for how good it looks....The one on the right is without the glass.

Be patient everyone....I will hopefully get it finished by this week....Cya.

Did you go to the dealer to get those projectors???What other projectors are good??!?!?
I bought them from a guy from these BMW forums for $550 w/shipping which is a rare buy...Audi, BMW, some mercedes and others use some good projectors...The Audi TT's projectors are weak though....don't get em...

Legend95, is your friends accord a white coupe? Are the first letters of the two words of his AOL IM name S.F.?<---didn't wanna give his AOL IM name out.

Here is an HID FAQ site with pics of cars retroed with OEM HID Projectors.... http://faq.auto.light.tripod.com/car-with-retroed-oem-projectors.htm

Legend"11, here is a link telling about the different projectors from different cars.... http://faq.auto.light.tripod.com/car-oem-hid.htm HID Projectors are always better than HID reflectors...I personally love the X5 beam pattern....X5, M5, S2000 are what I have heard are the best projectors....
