Pics of different projector headlights installed

Hey I was looking around for some stock-ish looking replacement headlight with projector lenses. Preferably the black Laredo looking ones. If you have some aftermarket units please post up some pics of them and the name of the style if you can. Thanks in advance.

Ebay has a lot of different ones some with pics. Although none of them look stockish.

Curious, are you planning to replace the modules inside your stock lights, or are you fitting completely new housings?

I was wondering if this was possible to do, maybe also tinting my rear light housings too... Will have to check what's road legal here first!

According to XE: 327.56 USD = 196.272 GBP
Front lights use LED (included) & rear use stock bulbs, so with a bit of effort it's not a bad upgrade!

I don't like the tail lights at all (too ricer for me) but the headlights are cool. Can't see where you are in my phone but as you converted to pounds I guess you are in UK! That gives you two problems. Firstly most US Amazon sellers won't post to the UK (even if they quote a price for doing so i've found....strange but true!) so check that and, more importantly, when I was looking at a set of black projector lights for mine I could not find a single set that were suitable for left hands drive.....so therefore won't pass the MOT. That's why I still have factory lights that are going to get the backings sprayed black...one day!

Haha! Yeah I was never the racer type, don't know what's gotten into me!

Fair point about the MOT. I'm sure that's why most people hold on to their stock fittings, but that's a bit naughty. I'd rather find a safe AND legal option, which might mean some tints & a spray can in the meantime!

As I understand it the angle of the beam is what you mean right? As I'm not sure the housings themselves are different shapes are they?
I would have thought you could align them internally, or with shims at the worst, but I've never taken them out so have no idea.

Oh & yeah, I'm in UK between Leeds & York. Must be fun round your way off-road!

Yeah I did not mean with hid in mine...I've no need for them.
The main thing for the Mot is the shape of the cut off line....on low beam it must kick up to the left to light up the side of the road not to the right to blind oncoming cars. You can't adjust that on a projector. Even if you could they would still fail for not having the E mark proving they are built to Euro safety standards. Two people I know run them....and put the stock ones back on for the test.....too much hassle for me.

You can just search HID Retrofit. A few threads here with the details. I just added black paint. Not too hard. Biggest thing is opening up the headlights which can be difficult.

Good work. I'll look into this. I hate the ricey halo projectors and especially hate the led turn signals it seems all aftermarket units have.
