PRICE REDUCED: $380 OBO SHIPPED. That's basically buying the HID parts at discount and getting Free headlights!
Seeing as how I don't own a mk3 anymore, it makes no sense to have these sitting in the garage.
I bought these last winter to do a retrofit for my cabrio daily driver. I purchased brand new Helix/Depo R32 look chrome projector headlights from BFI. These have never been mounted on the car.
See link to part @ BFI ($260): http://store.blackforestindustries.com/mk3goprhech.html
These lights were then taken apart (lens removed and chrome bulb tray removed from housing) in order to retrofit TSX projectors. The OEM HID retrofit parts were purchased from The Retrofit source.
A summary of the parts purchased is as follows ($410):
1) 1x Pair: Acura TSX low beam projectors (OEM clear lens, best out there)
2) 1x Pair: Matsu****a ballasts (best seal/size for oem ballasts)
3) 1x Pair: New Philips D2S bulbs (0 miles, 0 hours with power on them)
4) 1x 9006 relay wire harness (should make it easy to wire with the headlights internal wiring)
After having the headlights apart, I "color modded" the projector by shimming the bowl from the lens and then made small aluminum brackets to hold the projector in the housing. Some slight clearancing was needed.
As you can see in the pictures, the TSX projectors are much larger than the halogen ones. I will include the halogen ones with the headlights if you want them. To finish the retrofit, you will need to modify the back covers to seal with the new projectors. I currently cut them to fit and you will need to epoxy some PVC or be creative to have them seal. The required work is reflected in the price.
I have not used any of these parts. They are either new (bulbs, headlights, harness) or OEM used as purchased from TRS (projectors, ballasts).
