Those projector lamps just change the front looks of the car.

Now, the staid Getz seems to give off a "Don't mess with me" look.

Great job!

@ aZa: Thanks bro, for your headlights i have something uber cool.

@ caroholic: Thanks dude, I guess you also have a GETZ.

@ Technocrat: Thanks Techno, I'll post a details soon with the pics as of now i have not captured any WIP pics.

@ greenhorn: You need a Heatgun & Screw Driver, it takes only 5-10 mins to open up a Headlight if you know the correct way of doing it.

@ jkdas: Thanks JK. I'll post rest of the pics & videos by tonight.

@ extreme_torque: Thanks dude

@ kpzen: Thanks K.P, I have used BMW 5 Series Projector.

@ gomzi: Thanks bro, The car more looks meaner & aggressive with the CCFL's on.

The car looks awesome dude. Even i would like to go with the setup. Please take out some time and PM me the detailed list of parts & where to procure them and how to install. It would be of great help.

Hmmm this is what you made me wait at GYRO haa, Just kidding.

No doubt the lights are looking cool do post the WIP pics and for the video post the Youtube link. (i think external links for videos are allowed)

Edit: And do post some pics of your new ICE install .

That's an amazing DIY job and the projector setup with the matt black finish does make the getz look mean.No offense meant but I feel your alloys have too much of bling, a black one would have looked better.

One of the well executed jobs! Congratz, even the lighting seems to have worked out really well.

Do you have step by step narrative, pics of the job?

Wow!!! Looks really cool and the prescence of the car is more pronounced Now.

One doubt, do we have a low beam in this setup? I have seen such lights before and they really blind the oncomer . So PLease clarify as I might also go in for this in a few months time
