    Wondering to get The morimotos minis or the Fxrs to do a retrofit. and Gatling or Appolo shrouds. also how much more work are the minis compared to the fxr's.


    Thanks

    You have to weigh out the differences between the amount of time/effort needed to install the FX-Rs vs the minis. The minis are, in respect to most retros, plug and play. To me, they provide ample light output, cutoff crispness, and width. Ofcourse, they are less expensive too. Here's my install thread: My Morimoto Mini install thread
    Still need to get some better night shots..
