Thumbs up Pulsar 220 projector headlights on car!

hi friends,
Am here with a new (may be stupid) doubt. i was in search of an after market projector headlight set up for my hyundai santro. as you all know, its really impossible to find one. whenever i tried to contact any car modifiers, they are telling very high price. so now am thinking of a DIY project. am an amateur in this field. so my 1st doubt is,
can i use pulsar 220 projector kit for my car? is it readly fittable?
is it costly? will it make things useless? can i fit bi-xenon or dual beam light?
i know i had asked a really silly question, but i really need help.
i dont know why nobody discussed about it till now. i tried google also, but no use. anyway friends, help.

first of all need to ask you..which santro you have ? i means the model

secondly you have the projectors or you need to buy them ?

bi-xenons are really expensive !
you can make the double beam projectors in all santro models but the finishing is really costly .

one more thing if you going with the visibility part of the projectors then mind it to use the original bulbs with them ( i mean that if the projectors hold h7 the use only h7) otherwise you will ruin the whole thing

Projectors are typically for a single(fixed) HID beam - low. By that definition, if you want HIDs for low and high beam, you will need two separate projectors. Either that, or a single projector will need to swivel up/down for high-low beam, which is a very non-standard setup - and you would probably be amongst the first to experiment/implement such a setup if you chose this option.

As far as the feasibility of the Pulsar projector goes, projectors are typically vehicle agnostic. Having said that, you might just want to experiment once to check the spread/throw of this projector before you take the plunge.

i will be buying the projectors after getting green signal from team bhp guru's. you know, am a student and dont want to waste money on buying projectors which might be useless. so friends, please give me ideas

ok, so u r telling that i should go for low beam in projector, but the problem is where will i fit a second projector or any other thing for high beam? i dont think it will have enough space. am attaching a pic of front view, can you tell me how the fitting can be done? like, if i fit a low beam projector, what should i do for high beam? if i have to fit a second projector, where will i do that?

The thing you are asking has already been done by Smokin.
But since he is commercially involved, he cannot post a picture on this thread.
However you can check it in his avatar where he has put the picture of double beam projectors with angel eyes and led indicators done on a santro.

The beam of the P220 will not be too effective on a car. It is quite good on a bike. It is more pointed than projectors on cars. So unless there is some way to adjust the throw pattern of the projectors, it would be a waste of money. try getting projectors off cars like the sonata/mondeo etc from any scrapyard.

thanks for that point. so you are telling, it will be waste of money to fitpulsar 220 projectors. do you know if the problem is due to projector lens itself or due to the way it is fixed in the bike?

seen that, but that pic makes me feel that projector set up does not suit santro(no offense please) what do you think about making it fit in the fog lamp assembly?
