They shine pretty far down the road but it didn't seem that high up next to the wall.

Also, has anyone found a way to retain the use of their low beams at all. Otherwise I guess I have to find a spare set for inspection.
You're parked too close to the wall? What type of setup do you have? If your low beams aren't working, then your lights wouldn't be on. I assume you meant still being able to use your high beams, and the answer is yes you should still be able to use your high beams by simply plugging them in. If you're being flashed by people, you need to adjust your lights downward

Have any of you retrofitters use Audi A7 projectors yet? Seen one on the road last night and the cutoff looked great.

It's often difficult to find newer OEM HID projectors on the market for a reasonable price and usually newer projectors do not actually outperform older designs since DOT regulations are constantly getting tighter. The S2000 projector was introduced 13 years ago and it is still unmatched by newer OEM projectors.

Hey all... i have a question... now its not for my lude seeing how it is long gone... but i just retroed my s14... Morimoto mini h1s ... however the other day while i was driving they just shut off. I checked the fuses and they are all good... stock high beam works... and power is good.... but the bulbs arent firing? The only things i can think of would be stock relay, relay harness, or ballasts? Any suggestions on how to diagnose this problem?

The red and white cars have E46 shrouds, the remaining one is an iris shroud.

Shiloh51933 will become famous soon enough



I just brought these RX350 projection headlights home from work yesterday. The headlights are made by Depo as you can see in the pics I snapped. The Lexus GX 470(1stgen) have foggies w/projectors that I want to retrofit into my Lude foggies. I'm going to retrofit the RX350 projectors into a new pair of Depo oem style lenses with black housing around the reflectors. I've heard that the RX350 projectors work well with our headlight housings. Any opinions/suggestions/thoughts/ect...

Experienced retrofitters?
Especially those that have done fx-r

Would it be possible to fit
fx-r 3.0
With the 3 inch lens?
With standard e46-r shrouds
I like the look of a bigger lens like this here:
http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...d.php?t=316855

The 3 inches are a little longer than the 2.5's (pics attached)

(I'm only worried about the e46 shroud hitting the headlight lens since the projector would stick out more when mounting it)

Here is a direct comparison

Is there anyway to fix the rotational alignment once the projectors have been bolted in?
Had a set done a long time ago and just recently i decided to take the headlights out of the
car and fix them.

Here is a direct comparison
If you cut off the FX-R mounting bracket and drill out the 4 screw holes that hold the projector together and use those 4 holes as mounting holes the projector sits deep enough that it should work ok with E46R shrouds. When I do FX-R 2.5" with E46R shrouds mounted like that I have almost 1/2" of clearance from shroud to headlight lens. So you would be tight with 3" but should work if you mount the projectors very low in the upper reflector.

Some projectors have shields that can be adjusted slightly (TSX is easiest) while FX-R you can actually bend the shield stop slightly to adjust the rotation but it's very difficult to do without taking apart the housing again.
