    Do they make an h4 projector housing so I can do a retro with my headlights and not have to buy new bulbs?

    why the heck would you want to do that?!

    the entire point of an OEM retro is for a bulb that is at least 3 times brighter, w/ a better cutoff and crazy wide beam...;)

    FYI, there are plenty of cars that have OEM halogen projectors, camrys come first to my mind.

    No, but you can buy an H4 projector from Luminous Solutions. You just have to open up the headlights, screw the projector on, and reseal. Or, fab up a projector from another vehicle.

    ^ yea but if your going to do all that work of opening them up, why not just go w/ HID projectors. if your going to be doing a projector, why only do it halfway and put a halogen projector in there?!

    does the LS kit even work for the 1st gen tacos? what about your G3 kit, would that work? where would one get those from, just that one GB guy on HIDplanet?

    painted door handles, bilstein 5100's front and back, K&N air filter. Precision power component speakers and Kenwood deck.

    probably because we have bought the HID h4 ballast kit and dont want to purchase the H1 set.

    to my understanding if I were to buy the projector lights on ebay it states I would need the H1 bulbs. That means I would have to buy another HID kit for those headlights.

    I could be mistaken but I thought that there was a wiring harness adapter so you wouldn't have to change out your ballasts to run a D2S bulb.

    finally some one that has seen the light!! dont have a link, but go over to xr-underground, those guys pimp that guy left and right, almost too g@y for me!!

    a simple bulb purchase will take care of that...a ballast is a ballast, no reason to have to change, just change the bulbs.

    wrong, see above. and HIDs in those egay projector kits is going to suck, FYI

    :thumbsup: yep, and amp to D2S connector. its like $25.

    thanks for the info on the egay lights Ill go another route. As far as the bulbs go that is a hell of a better option. Didnt know they could sell the bulbs seperately.
