So...parts list

OEM HID projectors $209.84
Spare housings (very bottom) $286.64 (for both)
Audi strips $30

Total: $526.48

Dang thats gonna cost a pretty penny. Definitely can't do it right now but hopefully within a month or two I can. Thanks for the help and I'll let you know when I can afford it. I just have to have a set of headlights like yours.

You can get the projectors for less if you bid on them, just search Acura TSX OEM Projector and change it to ending soonest, wait til the last second to bid on it

Housings unfortunately are very expensive, you can go with used but they lenses get cloudy and develop small cracks which stand out with HIDs

Pretty sure I used 30 cm strips, I still have packaging from them around here somewhere, I'll find it tomorrow

the parts are pretty pricey to do it all, and it'* a lot of labor too

I think you might be able to get all the parts for about $400- 450 if you can find some good deals

then I will try to put a cost on the labor, I did it over the entire summer just doing a little here and there because of work but now since I'm not doing as much I have more free time, if I had to guess maybe 25 hours of work especially getting that bondo smoothed in there to make it look completely blended

Sorry I didn't notice this before, no thats a great price, I love love love Xentecs, one of my balasts that I bought 2 years ago is still going strong, the other would be too but a deer jumped in front of me and took out the passenger headlight with the balast right behind it

but you will need a D2S bulb for the Acura projectors, also look for a HID relay harness, I call it a must have when upgrading to HIDs

For some reason when I had searched for the projectors only that one listing had come up. I found some other listings now.

So like these
I was planning on getting a relay harness also, I had read your earlier post on it already. This one will work correct?

Yah they are really popular for retrofits

the kit is good just make sure you remember this

The buyer must include the following info in PayPal'* "Note To Seller" section or send us an email or eBay message:
  • Bulb Type
  • Color Temperature
Or else you have to wait for them to email you and it delays shipping

and that harness is exactly what you need

I also only need to buy one brand new housing. I replaced my drivers side housing when I got the car in July because it had a huge melt spot (from like a heat gun on the outside of the housing), so I could buy a used one to put in its place temporarily.

Edit* Just paid for the HID kit and the harness. Will keep watching the projectors and purchase a set of them next. Also gonna check the junkyards around here for a used driver'* side housing

Edit #2* Just bid on a brand new passenger'* side housing. My current bid is $51
