hey i need you to quote me on a project i have in mind that i want you to build if your interested rodger

i wanna take these


and these for the high beams


with the 20th headlight fogs installed also like these


really just want all projectors and just the turn signal being the only non projector in the housing and to have all of it painted black. i think your up to the task expecially after looking at all your work lemme know what you think about it i am also considering doing dual projectors on a mk5 style housing for the mk4 gti/golfs like you and fubar were discussing earlier in this thread

Ive looked into what you wanna do. Essentailly the Mini h1/D2S bixenons are too big for the high beam spot. I do have the "Matchbox Bixenon" which is essentailly a bixenon fog light and fits Perfectly in the high beam spot.

For the low beams Id recommend a high quality oem projector (low or bixenon) opposed to those honkers. Just not enough space to do it right. Id suggest the Lexus RX-AFS low beams or something similar to that. The oem G37 Bixenon, tuned with clear lenses also look VERY good but a bit more work to get perfect.

Had a 9007 Halogen Bulb burn out again. I have to change bulbs about every 1-2 years it seems and my DRLs are shut down. I have run stock, Sylvania Ultra, Sylvania Ultra IIs so far. Trying out the Phillips Extreme Power this time. I heard they are slightly more yellow than the Sylvanias, but have longer life and are actually a brighter output compared to Ultra IIs. We will see....

I am currently trying to fix my set by covering the reflector with aluminium tape i am then going to polish it with some metal polish to make it nice and shiny will let you knoe how it holds....

I finally figured out why my headlights were aimed low the other day btw. Theres that circular piece in the back that props them up. I must have forgot to lock them back up-right before install lmfao

I think you get plenty of appreciation on instagram :p

Oh and I noticed a bunch of your pics from the previous page have been "moved" so they don't display anymore. Just so you know :K:
