[pics] Upgraded factory projector HIDs to aftermarket Laser projectors

I'm sad I have LEDs, otherwise I would totally do this on my car.
IMHO this projector setup is way clearer and brighter than the factory matrix LED ones given the loan cars I've driven.. so if I had an LED car I'd most likely end up buying a set of pre-facelift headlights (since they're like dirt cheap on ebay these days) and retrofitting the car with it. Also less issues with the LED DRL going yellow on the older style projectors.. obviously that would only work on an S

yeah the lights are pretty terrible on the X.
 
Sorry late reply. Not on the HID (pre-facelift) cars. The HID Ballast was basically analog, straight 12Vdc for low and high beam. The car also never detected a change in current draw or threw a code. In fact the car's been to the service centre multiple times for different things since, not one single tech have noticed/commented it's got a different headlight in it 🤣

I still can't see the pics referred to in the original post... are they rehosted somewhere else?

Very curios as this sounds like a nice upgrade and I have a headlight acting wonky...

It seems TMC is suggesting to upgrade your account, here is a screenshot…
