Unleashing the Power of Projector Retrofits: A Comprehensive Guide

Hey there, fellow headlight enthusiasts! You've probably seen the magic of plug-and-play LED bulbs and HID kits. But have you ever dived into the world of projector retrofits? If not, buckle up! We're about to take you on a journey that will illuminate the path to your next headlight upgrade.

Why Projector Retrofits?

So, why should you consider a projector retrofit? Simple. If you're stuck with a halogen, reflector-based headlight, you're missing out on some serious light output. Let's face it. By today's standards, the output from these old-school headlights just doesn't cut it. That's where a projector retrofit steps in, turning your headlights from "meh" to "marvelous."

The Projector Retrofit Transformation

A projector retrofit is like giving your car a pair of eagle eyes. It involves swapping out your existing halogen headlight with a bi-xenon projector. This upgrade will take your light output from "just okay" to "jaw-droppingly awesome." We'll show you the difference between a standard halogen headlight, a comparable LED bulb, a comparable HID kit, and finally, the star of the show, a bi-xenon projector retrofit.

The Nitty-Gritty of a Projector Retrofit

A projector retrofit is a bit like a headlight facelift: 

Remove your existing headlight: This involves heating the headlight to soften the glue, then gently prying it apart.

Install the new projector: This might require some minor surgery inside the headlight housing, like creating extra clearance or attaching a shroud to the projector.

Reseal the headlight: This involves applying fresh sealant and clamping the headlight shut to ensure a watertight seal.

In a nutshell, a projector retrofit is your ticket to superior lighting. It's a three-step process: remove, install, and reseal. It's all about upgrading your ride's visibility game to the next level. Get ready to light up the night like never before.

Choices, Choices, Choices

When it comes to projector retrofits, the world is your oyster. You can choose from a smorgasbord of projectors, power supplies (HID ballasts), HID bulbs, and shrouds.

Projectors come in different sizes and types, including OEM and aftermarket options. The choice depends on your vehicle's headlight size and your personal preference.

Power supplies, or HID ballasts, are the heart of your projector retrofit. You can choose between OEM and aftermarket options, as well as between 35-watt and 50-watt versions.

HID bulbs are the soul of your retrofit. They come in a spectrum of colors and brands. You can choose a color temperature that suits your mood, from warm white to pure white or even a hint of blue.

Shrouds are the finishing touch that gives your retrofit its unique personality. They come in various designs and colors. This allows you to customize the look of your headlights.
