    Thread: Dual rounds - LEARN ME

    1. 03-03-2012 05:51 AM #386
      If you're talking about one of the three studs that are
      Part of the back of the actual cibie reflector, no you can't get those individually, you could try reattaching it somehow, or find another used light, or you can buy them new but one is around 130 to 150.
      W.T.B. - Kinetic Motorsport FMIC front-mount intercooler for MK3 OBD-1 VR6 GTI/Jetta.
      Must include all original parts, and be in excellent condition.

      Hey guys I was wondering if someone (preferably with voted dual rounds, but I guess any will do) had any up close pics of the mounting. I got mine in, and have the ecode brackets, I just feel like they're not just right because they don't line up with the fenders well and I feel like if I close my hood hard I could damage them..don't worry, summer wheels going on tomorrow and is going lower lol

      I think they look pretty decent anyway!

      hmm never heard of them, just purchased a pair of them! Lol, thought they were unusual and awesome because I couldn't find anything like them. I guess I'm a sucker for rare/unusual things.

      ^ that.
      Especially, what I think is, that Kamei piece covering the top half of the grill.

      thanks man.

      i don't even have that car anymore.

      wish i had kept the dual round setup and the kamei grill piece.

      yeah I'm on a hunt for the kamei piece for my setup when it's done.
      what dual rounds were those? Looks like ABT's with hella internals (or lo beam at least)?

      those were ABT dual rounds with the cibie high beam and the low beam was from a 3 or 5 series bmw.

      fit like a glove. just had to modify back cut off the back plastic to be able to extend the projector.

      but the actual round face fit perfectly in the abt lights. secured it with silicone/glue and called it a day.

      great beam pattern too.

      Well, since most people with hdr need these adjusting screws I found what appears to be them, a little pricey but what can you do (they are single bolts, with the two plastic pieces). Just bought some, and just bought two rubber boots for the high beams.

      http://www.rallylights.com/detail.aspx?ID=323

      The hella ones appear to be the ones on the hdr. (also found that searching "hella universal headlight adjusting screws" comes up with more results...I bought mine from Amazon, with the college student free "prime" offer...free 3 day shipping or something like that)

      Hella, in.pro (same as hella), tyc (hella reps) could have come with smoked masks like that. Look for the light manufacturer/stampings on the masks?
