It wasn't in-expensive. They took my stock headlight housing, took it apart, painted the housing satin black, installed a TSX projector, 2 LED halo rings, LED turn signal & I get a nice cutoff. You can check them out here and ask them for what you like yourself.

Yup, and with lens and shield mods get a cutoff that is sharper than most other projectors out there and even makes the TSX look fuzzy, as well as being the widest projector available..

Those are pretty freakin' nice. I have a question: If those are installed (or even the infiniti one above), does that mean the factory HID set up won't function or can't be used? I have an 05 GS430. I understand that those "Halo eyes" projector won't work on my car since I have factory HID's on my car. Also, what kind of side skirts and rear is that? Thanks for any replies ~

Well, it would be a terrible move to install the ebay 'halo' projectors replacement lights if you already have factory HID, as the GS stock D2R HID's have a better pattern and output than those projectors do anyway.

But as for retrofitting a real projector into your stock hid housing, then yes you can reuse the oem ballast and the auto leveling will still work.

Yeah, the "Halo" ones are better suited for non-HID GS'. Stock HID's are brighter anyway. But, again .. this is sick! Love how it looks on your car

The halo ones are terrible, always.

Retro fit if you must have projectors don't buy cheap trashy looking headlamps
