Everything retrofitting / HID
http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17073

Some people asked about the cost. Let me just say if you buy everythign NEW it will go up in the 700$+. Use ebay.

COST :
Projectors: They go from under 100$ to 200$, xenon or bixenons(high beam included).
Ballast: Cheapest ones will be around 100$, expect to pay 150-200$ for good ones.
D2S bulbs : probably around 40-50$ used. The normal color is 4300 K (white).
Clear Lens : You can either get the stock lens defrosted or buy clear lens from me. 100$
Misc: Screws and tools if you don't have all necessary. $$$
Shipping for all those individual items : ~50-80
Total cost : 390-630$.

u just need projectors that fit width/depth wise... he used infiniti FX projectors. supradog (i think) and i got TSX projectors... dustin has e46 projectors i think... as for bulbs... i have philips... i think most popular are philips/osram... OEM is 4300K if colour is what ur asking... ballasts... there are lots... i think philips/hella/bosch/etc... i use matsu****a gen3. they r supposed 2 b slim and small and sealed.

u can find projectors and ballasts and bulbs all over the web... projectors can range from <100 to probably 300 for bi-xenon

u mean rayme? it said in his original post he used fx projectors and lexus/denso ballasts... so... *shrugz*... mayb it was a typo or sumthin...

but expect to pay somewhere between 300-500 for parts... my setup cost somewhere between 400-500 for parts... but u can find em a lot cheaper now

i retroed projectors into my JDMs.. so u can image how much it cost LOL

but no... HIDs in high beams is generally NOT a good idea... normally, high beams are used to flash people... and HID bulbs will die very fast if u keep flashing them on and off... (it's normally a bad idea to turn on/off ur HIDs if ur driving a really short distance)

also, look @ how ur highs are aimed.. they are usually aimed higher... (ie, they aren't ment to be on all the time)... so... since projectors have a cut off... it kinda defeats the purpose of the highbeam as well....

altho people still do it.. and there are bi-xenon projectors...

so yea.. most ppl don't put HIDs in their highs
