Very nice! I'm jealous. I plan on posting a thread to show the differences between the halogens, HIDs, raxioms (with or without HIDs), and I wanna use the pictures from your retrofit if that's alright? I think it would be cool to have a "sticky" type thread for the light addicts lol.

Makes me feel all the better about ordering HIDs for my raxioms now if they would just get here.

You are absolutely welcome to use my photos. This afternoon I am going to a parking garage to finalize the aiming. I will post a pic with the cutoff once I get it done.

This guy had a legit retrofit with morimoto projectors in the stock housings. I'll be posting a picture of the raxioms with 4300k HIDs in the next day or two for comparison reasons. I can guarantee you that the actual retrofit will make the raxioms and HIDs look shameful lol. Halogen projectors with HIDs will never compare to his projectors with a good set of bi-xenon bulbs.

I appreciate that! Hopefully I can use the pictures so that way everyone can know exactly what set-up can get them the light output they want.

Here they are at 25 ft. I think the left one needs to be rotated slightly but, I am only going to do it if I can do it with them on the car. It's not worth the effort to take them out again.
