This project was expensive as far as labor goes because of the person who did this has a very well known portfolio for making his retrofit very factory looking as you can see. As far as time wise if it is something he has done before, not too long 90 days or less if it is something he is to design and engineer for, it might take a bit longer.

Looks like your Gen 3 RX is pretty loaded already, you are still looking for a retrofit done on the headlight ?

Hello, So does using 75 watt HID ruin the headlight housing after a period of use? I have read mixed reviews on whether it does and doesnt. People say itll be too much heat for the projector and so the bowl will start to burn off. Any help would be awesome. Thanks guys

Nope It was set originally at 100 watt and that is when it melts the headlight housing over a year, it was dial down to 75watt to prevent that. So I have this setup on a daily use for about 6 months now, no signs of housing being over heated or deforming.

Thats great news to hear! My package is on its way. Also.. I know this is random, but I have a F150 as well. I did a Dual Triple Bi-Xenon Headlight set up...and it was amazing. All with 55w HID.

Alex are you talking about the factory DRL ? cos I've disable it. The only DRL I have are the strip of LEDs and they are fading a bit now, have philips 8 led DRL install on it soon.
