Thats what i would recomend doing myself . The generation 1 hid set gives a much better cut off line in my opinion .

$300 to do your set of ba headlights with these projectors .But have a new set coming out soon with projectors without angel eyes built in and led angel eyes that fit on the chrome surround of the Ba headlights but these will be more expensive . will post pics when finished

Ef falcon lights can be done but the lines in the front glass spread light unevenly .Projector upgrades work best when you have clear glass on your lens like the Au Ba etc but if you want to do it you can you just wont get the crisp cut off line that you would get with a clear lens

Unfortunately no. I'm working on a set of headlights for my EL Ghia at the moment.
I've sanded down all of the vertical lines in the lens to make it perfectly clear.
And just to test it I tried it with a normal lens, with the lines, it destroyed the output and made a ton of glare. Light went everywhere except where it needed to go.

I agree with MAD light will be reflected everywhere , sure the globe may produce more light but without it being focused anywhere it destroys the quality of the light BTW MAD how long did it take to sand all those lines down ?

I have spent so much time on them I have forgotten.
I thought I was done and polished them up for the final time but found that I hadnt sanded the inside 100% right and it distorted the output... I've fixed that bit and now need to polish them up again, hope fully I got it right this time. Unfotunately I am flat out with other things at the moment and wont get a chance to polish these up for another month or so.
