Re: 2nd Retrofit on 2009 Pontiac Vibe - HID

I did the Minis for ease. They dropped right in no problem. And I have TRS warranty on them, and spare bulbs/ballasts. They more than satisfy me. But there are other options out there. My own problem with the FX-Rs is the custom work necessary, which is a little daunting and would take more than a ...

Re: 2nd Retrofit on 2009 Pontiac Vibe - HID

And no offence to your retrofits the Mini H1 are great projectors, but you're lucky to have such large headlights and should be using a better, OEM projector. Have you ever looked into the FX-R projectors? They are GREAT, however they will obviously require modification to the headlight moreso than ...

Re: 2nd Retrofit on 2009 Pontiac Vibe - HID

I like! As someone that has done two retrofits (2nd time with Mini H1s) I'm quite interested. Aren't those lights permaseal? How did you open them up? I personally prefer the cutoff of the H1s, but the light spread on the TLs is much lower. However, I'm not sure how that compares to the H1 6.0s I h...
