    This website gave me the b@lls to pull my headlights apart and make a set of Retros. Here are pictures of my 5th retrofit almost completed. Show us your retros!

    Soooo how much are we talking for a set? If I knew I could do it then I'd just tackle it myself but if you could do the mod for the right price I'd be happy to give you my moneys:)

    Mini H1 on the left, FX-R 3" on the right. This is when I was upgrading from Mini's to FX-R. The FX-R's are stage IV with denso slims and phillips +

    Low Beam (I know they arent aligned, just did this for comparison)
    CAM00134-1_91683a47b8d62a46e5f5dcb725a9069804e62344.jpg

    High beam (notice how much better the FX-R is up top)

    Low beam on road (its nothing short of amazing)
    CAM00343_c62b96abeba70f436b423af9e1a48e920d0a6ebc.jpg

    Super wide beam
    CAM00195_122912b9cc26ccec800bdbf0348472af552fec79.jpg

    Dont have any pics of the high beams yet, but they literally light up the road for miles it seems.
