I'm curious... do you still retain the factory leveling bubble and adjustments?

Just a quick question had anyone done a retro fit and include a self leveling system?

I want to add HID's to my soarer but unfortunately the law over here states that it must be self leveling, bah, stupid halogens don't have to be so morons can drive around blinding you with ill adjusted lamps, and also they have to have a washer system

Cool

tks...tks...tks.........................................and thank you!! for the kind words.

i still retain the stock leveling with this retrofit. this project was so easy to do with the
custom brackets... no guessing at all when it comes to adjustments.

i will try to use 85123's hid bulbs if i can get any fr cheap.........hehhe

you retained the stock leveling.... but no bubble right? I was looking at the stock projectors and the bubble is built into the projector.

Dammit the more I look the more I want... I want retrofit HID on my Soarer! Only thing is parts aren't gonna come past easy on this side of the planet... anyone that would be able to fabricate them over there in the US and then ship them here? Or I'm I just thinking totally wack?

Jose

EDIT: When I said shipped to here I meant Sydney (Australia) lol

You guys good with retrofitting should get together and start making some soarer headlights with the retrofitted prjectors on them already.. I would definitely buy them off you guys. I just don't have the patience and crafty skills to do a project like this.. I'd probably end up breaking everything!..

hmmm, maybe we shud...huh? if you have another car for transportation, you can prolly send us
your stock headlights and im sure the retroffiting will take 1 whole day to finish if all parts are available.
the only downside is that it's very hard to get those rings nowadays......we tried looking for those on ebay but still no luck. we can get pretty much any projectors out there but not all of them will fit or look completely stock like what we did on my sc. the audi's (E46) projectors i think is the closest thing but
E39 and others might stick out a little more.

autiger200: same thing for you buddy! decided what projectors you guys like and we'll go from there.
you will need to send yr headlights to us for the retrofitting.
