Re: Halo Headlights

Not a Big fan of halos. They look ricey to me. I think retofit headlights look 100 times better but they are pricey.

Re: Halo Headlights

but you have to buy projectors, lamps, etc...it adds up. prelude1897(brian) is the guy to talk to if you really want retros. hes been doing it forever, and ive seen his work in person, and you cant get any nicer than his work.

Re: Halo Headlights

I like the halo look. Beamers do it all the time. I have even seen chargers with them and it just makes them look mean. If a 5th gen had them with the hood conversion to cover the headlight a little then I think it would look freakin awsome!!!

Re: Halo Headlights

You can have your lights retrofitted with halo LED rings, believe it or not. It'll probably cost more than buying halo headlights, but using OEM headlights presents higher quality. If you want retrofitted halos then check out: HID Projector Headlight Retrofit for Subaru, Honda, BMW, Scion and More | LightWerkz.net they also do regular retrofits (HID projectors); they did mine.

Re: Halo Headlights

Wow. I'm surprised at this forum lol. Does nobody on here do their own retrofits?

It's not even that expensive, let alone hard. On the high end, going to a place like theretrofitsource.com will still be cheaper than buying prefabbed retros, and the quality (depending on your skill lol) will be greater. Plus, you learn on your own and have the satisfaction of it being your own work, AND you can pretty much do whatever you want, halos, leds, different shrouds...

That website not only has every part you could possibly need, it also has THE best forum of all the info on your project, along with VERY knowledgable and helpful people.

On the cheap side, many parts can be found secondhand at the junkyard for STUPID cheap. I got Mazda millenia Projectors with 9005 bases for like $7 apiece. lol


as far as the 5th gens go, I would buy the DEPO blackhoused ones and do my own retrofit, using TSX projectors and the clear lenses from that site, and E36 shrouds.

Or just use OEM headlights, and paint the shrouds semi-flat black. Then get TSX projectors with E46 Shrouds.

Re: Halo Headlights

Well yeah. I've done many a blackhouse and retro job, but if I were to do it now, I'd rather have a new set to work on while I have the stock ones on the car. Gives more time to work without having to worry about being incapacitated. But either way ;)

I have those same headlights with the black housing and they work great and looks awesome. I paid $325 with the HID combo. I get nothing but great commits about them..

Re: Halo Headlights

Wow, thanks guys for putting my name out there and spreading the word about my retrofit work....



invoke>>>are you asking where you can get retrofits from? If so, all you have to do is ship your stock lights out or you can buy new lights, have them shipped to me, and I can take care of the rest. Once it's all done with, i'll ship them right out to you and everything is basicly PnP. It's a night and day difference once you have them adjusted right. I have a bunch of pics if you follow this link http://www.myspace.com/bceretrofits/...MttY%2bFeYoh4K

depends on the setup you're wanting. My pricing ranges from $550-$800 and if your lenses need to be cleaned, I'll do that for FREE and if there's anything you're wanting painted black, I'll do that for FREE as well
