^^ make sure you boys use the E46-R "Extended" shroud. It's the best shroud that will fill up the void space around the low beam reflector. The only shroud that TRS sell that will give the best "OEM" look with the least to no amount of work to fit.

Also consider using the FX-R BiXenon projector. The output is not as wide as say S2K but still pretty wide. Using an FX-R will give you:
* Twin low beam &
* Quad high beam
Setup, if you're prepared to wire it up that way (I can guide you).. it'll be FX-R high beam + OEM high beam..
cool thanks for the additional info, umm theres a few options on shrouds. but yes e46 shrouds are commonly used because of the spacing. BTW, im still having some wiring/circuit issues on my low beams. its shut.

$450 seems like a steal for retrofitting. Did you ever get it done?
No not yet, havnt had time.. im tryin to plan it out. i need to take care off the DRL too, i think thats what caused the short circuit. (long story) but yea if check out their website it gives lots of options on how u want ur retrofit. www.theretrofitsource.com from shrouds, lenses, and bulbs. its legit. u can even send ur headlights to them if u dont wanna mess with it.

Here's a tip for you boys wanting to go with a "Stage III" or "Stage IV" kit:

Buy the Stage III kit that comes with the aftermarket Morimoto Ballast:


^^ The wiring that connects to the ballast has more of a "water resistant" arrangement. The wiring is designed to run OUTSIDE of the HL.


Stage IV kits have the option of OEM ballasts (Denso slim or Matsushita Gen V):
Matsushita Gen V


Denso slim


^^ The wiring for these ballasts are designed to run sealed and waterproofed INSIDE the HL via the designated hole underneath. eg Denso Slims are found on GTR35 HLs.


Also consider the purchase of a pair of "Rubber Housing Caps" because your new projector will most likely stick out from the back of the HL. The OEM Rubber Grommet will no longer give that OEM seal....

Thanks for the tip bro!
