Default Projector setup on my Honda city

Hi,

Just did a so called DIY on my Honda city zx VTEC.

I used a BOLT-ON Bi-xenon projector setup, as the regular one makes the headlight unusable if the projector is removed, It was a 45min job. The best part about this kit was it came with every thing you need BI-xenon 3.5" projector with a bezel fitted,Hid with ballast ,relays,CCFL rings.

The visiblity is good, Low beam can be better, will try and modify it,High beam is nice, and the Dipper function is
I will not compare it to any of the HELLA projectors,They are better but then they come at a price and fitment issues as well.

But it will say for me they are worth the money.

I have a similar kit - and its instructions asks you to head the headlamps in a grill at 85 degrees for 12 minutes, or use a hot air blower. Am wary of both - grilling a headlamp?? Or where will I find a industrial hot air blower?!!

@ noidaboy - any tips on how you did it?

The only effort is to open the headlight, NO CUTTING required that is the whole point of the kit. You just need to remove the bulbs and fit this in, Its customized to fit H4 size holders and takes all the support and get locked there. So if you sell the car tomorrow,You can just unscrew it and put back your original bulbs.

Just take a head gun and carefully heat the edges of the lights melting the silicon inside,You can pull apart the glass with the help of force and screw drivers. You can use 400-500deg heat on a heat gun. But you have to be careful and not to over heat it, else you may melt the mould. Once you are done heat the edges again and place back the glass and fit it, The same silicon will hold the glass again.

The international way is to find a OVEN that can contain that big a light and the heat it.

Thanks bro. Have to hunt for a heat gun now. You think I gotta buy one? Or can you suggest the likely places from where I can borrow one?

All this for 14k? Or did you have to buy anything separately? What about shipping?

Yes,everything bought nothing else. complete fitment price, You might even get a cheaper model that this, That is smaller is size and lesser visibility as well
