Not sure which links you were using initially, but you have 2 choices from the webpage, either the embed this image / forum link, or alt forum link, or the embed thumbnails forum / alt forum links. either work with copy/paste.

I stripped out the link, since these are the full size images.

Don't you need low beams to keep from blinding oncoming drivers? And then high beams to see farther out?

Hey! Haven't checked with this thread in a LONG time. It's AWESOME to see someone actually built a set. Glad the write-up helped you!

Again, most of the credit for these go to my best friend (av6g6), as they were his idea.

Here are some pics of the HIDs in the car with the fogs working.

JUST and FYI to anyone that may be interested,

I'm just probing here but I am thinking of selling this set of headlights, so my buddy and I can rebuild them with TSX projectors instead of BMW projectors!

Would there be any SERIOUS interest in these if I were to sell them?

high / low beams do not refer to brightness. this refers to the focus point of the beam. high=up low=down. the output of any given bulb is the same for either position.

Finally got around to installing the new headlight switch I received from a member, sphenicie!

Here are the first good pics I have of my current BMW projectors with a 35w 6k HID kit. They are slightly crooked, but they still work beautifully. They will be for sale here soon!
