GXP lens are smoked and the little cap that is in front of the bulb is painted black, giving the headlight an overall darker look. The reason some websites say they won't fit GXP models is that unless you ordered a set and replaced both, each side would look different once you replaced the GXP with a non-GXP.

I don't have any sets made up right now because of the high cost of materials and each person would probably want something a little different. Price depends on what all you want in them. TSX are single. With the pair I made before it still used the stock high beams. For a set like what I sold Mouse and then also smoking the lens, probably looking at the $600 range.

Looks decent as long as they're good projectors. The TSX ones I put in my headlights were $185 and only did one beam, so going off the theory if you double that for two beams = $370, so it could cut down costs. Keep in mind though you would still have the high-beam refractors. I might be able to score some STS headlights off of ebay and keep the price at or under the price of the bi-xenons and then you would have the quad-bubble look.

Edit: Ok just looked again and that includes ballast, bulbs, and shrouds. That'* actually a pretty good deal then

it is possible/good idea to have bixenon in low and a single beam projector in high?

Hmm kinda hard to tell which would be best since they don't have the pictures all at the same angle. The E46-R Extendeds look to be one of the better ones for our headlights as long as you like the look of them. If you want a smooth one the Apollo and Ocular look good.

I'm not even sure if our wiring can support bixenon in any way. Unless the ballast for the HID has two plugs on it, one for low and one for high, I don't think it would work

Yea there'* plenty of room. At least there was around the TSX projectors.
