    Just ordered Morimoto Mini projectors today, so I will likely be doing this next weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Now to track down a reasonably priced pair of "spare" headlights so I can continue to drive when I inevitably screw up...

    Yeah, ordered from the retrofit source. I have plug and play hids in there already, so I just got the upgrade kit (uses my existing ballasts). Their prices seem good and the shipping was very reasonable.

    Really hung up on where to get a set of headlights though, shipping to Canada seems too high for most of the ebay sellers. Any ideas for where to find a decent set locally? (I just need a pair to use while I do the retrofit).

    The best I've seen is the Retrofit Source packages.

    That or the plug and play kits sold on here. But I'm just not happy with the light pattern on the plug and play kits - its giving of a lot of glare regardless of aiming and I'm worried about a potential ticket...

    Kit was on backorder from TRS. Still waiting on that. I'm also hoping for someone to come through with a set of OEM lights, but may end up having to bite the bullet and pay ~$200 on ebay shipped. Once I get everything I'll post the progress.
