i woudlnt put a hid kit in the high beam - you'll essentually loose the ability to flash with them - and bi-xenons should do the job easily

Agreed.

Keep the halogen high beam for flashability during the day, and at night the BiXenon will light up the road like you've never seen before. My FX-R retrofit turns night into day with highbeam.

Ok . The mini H1 bixenon high/low kit is $270 from the retrofit source for a pair of projectors.2 sets of projectors are $540 plus $100 to fit them to your lights . As stated before if you have a proper bixenon projector kit you will very rarely need any extra light . Your standard high beams will do fine but the final decision is up to you

I can put the projectors in your lights but you will need to check out MADs el hid project and wait for him to make the clear lenses for the EB

Here are a few i have done. The ba ones are mini H1 projectors . They are the easiest to fit , you remove the globe and the projector plugs into your globe socket . The AU set are a much better projector but cant be installed without cutting or modifying the reflector or headlight housing. The other pic is the light output on low beam.The ba projectors can be ordered with larger shrouds than the ones in the pic . I will never go back to halogens

I too am curious if something can be done with the ED XR lamps... replace the old projectors to new ones... I have seen some where you use a stand HID bulb but the projector itself cuts the top off the beam on low and when you go high something in the projector changes and gives you a full beam... The pics on ebay looked good... But I don't enough about all these to justify buying something and then trying to get my lamps apart... If the low beam lamps could be changed to hi/lo lamps that'd be great...

Cheers,
Tim

Im sure these can be done but dont have any experience with them . However the mini H1 projectors and fxr projectors are both high/low projectors

Cool...

So what does it take to get someone who knows what they're doing to have a go? Getting alignments and that right... And I'm not entirely sure how you get them apart... The glass looks to be epoxied to the plastic part... Something really hard... And I wasn't prepared to try (it'd be my luck I'd destroy an expensive lamp)...

Cheers,
Tim
