it isn't when you have a headlight like yours with lots of room. i basically have to fabricate a whole new bracket system to mount to the headlight. sucks cause the xenon fl coupe headlights have barely any material to start with, and i've been cutting that lol

Taken last night, few feet from a wall at a parking lot. Shot with blackberry camera.

I know I have to lower the drivers side fog light, it's just a pain to get it down to the right level for some reason.

Don't have any current pics of my car's output, so instead here are a few pics from my old car's output, as well as some shots of my angel eyes and stuff.

The following pictures are OEM AL projectors originally from a 2002 325i that I retrofitted onto my old car. I modded them with ZKW-R lenses, and also played with the highbeam coding. As far as I knew, the bulbs (Osram 66040) were original, so at the time of the pictures they were about 8 years old.


Here is a shot from when I was modding the projectors w/ ZKW-R lenses. Left is modded, right is stock.


Lowbeam garage shot of both projectors modded (pic was taken months later)


Bixenon highbeams


Halogen highs *without* bixenon shutters enabled


Bixenon & Halogen highs simultaneously.

07 Scion tC
TSX projectors
Denso ballasts
CBI bulbs
CCFL angel eyes (not shown in pictures)

Here' s a picture for those of you contemplating a TSX retro. not my car, I did this retro on my GF's tC. it's using CBI bulbs with OEM denso ballasts. the beam is way wider, I could not fit it into the picture. camera doesn't do it justice. it was taken from the moonroof.



just to show cutoff, it would look better on a wall

Another.... (disregard the hot/coldspots in the center and bottom left/right. The backdrop is blue paper and is a little wrinkled. The wall shot is more accuratein this regard)
