    info posted by buzzardsgottaeat (edited by myself for length)

    A lot of people get the mini (H1 or D2S) because they're easiest to install

    FX-Rs are better quality but require free hand cutting of your light housing and a slightly more difficult aiming/securing process.


    H4 headlights
    the harness will be the H4/9003 for most people on here

    H1 has been deemed a little brighter while D2S more even output. Most go with the H1 simply because its brighter but don't consider other factors. Matt and the guys at TRS mostly favor the D2S and I also like to point out that the larger shrouds fill our headlights better than the mini H1 and there is a greater selection.

    3000k is yellowish and good for fogs for its ability to cut through adverse weather

    4300k is like sunlight or stock color headlights and has the highest lumen count (brightest) of the available options

    5000k will be whiter and is the highest TRS recommends.
    6000k is also very white with a tiny bit more blue

    Any higher temp is stupid because you lose light output and fatigue your eyes and others.

    I always say 4300k is the way to go but can see how white/5000k has an appeal

    The upside to a projector retrofit vs cheap hid bulbs in your stock light housing is mainly that it is higher quality and has a clean cut off line.

    I can't think of anything else off the top of my head but that should be a good starting point for anyone who wants to start researching these.

    Burt, I just wanna make sure I'm correct with how much I need to add to Paypal to send to you... Also I forgot so put that I wanted 3" lenses

    Is there any benefit for me if i purchase the resealing glue? or is that only if i plan to take the lights off again?

    FX-R + BHLM install= $630
    New OEM headlights= $520
    Angel eyes= $110
    LHD 3" Lens= $10
    Shipping= $10

    $960? (And I'm assuming when I drive to you you'll reimburse me for my cores?)
