It'd be really cool to do projector retrofits on yours. That'd really give you some nice light.
easier said than done, I will be doing it this summer though.

Yea, I wouldn't recommend bandit doing the HID in the OEM housings. We can pick up a set of factory projectors from someplace, and get a DS2 kit to install in them. The tough part is retrofitting into OEM housings. Oi. That'* gonna be a lot of work.

Better get some newer headlights bandit. If you to true HID projectors, you'll love the light ouput. See if you can get ECE (E-Code) projectors.

Seems like you know a decent bit about projectors. You can get DOT projectors but ECE lenses are what you really want to look for (ues you can swap just the lense)

I'm currently looking into going with 2 TL projectors and 2 TSX yes, quad projectors. I dont have a lamp monitor system to deal with so I am pretty free to do whatever I want. I will likely make the center amber bulbs my DRL Will be pretty cool.

Cool. I may be able to swap in some other projectors if I do some looking around. These mount to a plate that kinda "snaps" into the housing (for adjustment purposes). I may be able to find an ECE projector that'll replace these chung-kung-fooey projectors and give me a better light pattern.

I saw some pics of someone who put HID projectors behind the fluted lenses of some ricer. As neat as it looked, I didn't really care a whole lot for the light pattern. It wasn't too bad, had a decent cutoff. Definately better than stock, and useable on the street (enough glare control). Maybe doable on a bonne.
