Mini gatlings come with the mini h1s standard. I'm sure either buyhids.com or theretrofitsource.com could get you a set if you sent them an email if you're looking to change shrouds.

Yeah they are. So pumped to get them, should be in tomorrow. He's giving me a week to send them back if I'm not happy, so I'm not really worried about anything at this point.

if headlights for my car didn't cost $800 a pair, I would. MY retrofit on this car would cost almost $2000 if I did it. It would be quad RX-350 projectors with custom shield, OEM Mitsubishi ballasts, and Osram D2s bulbs which are $190 a pair. I've only got 1 set of them now and they're by far the best bulb out there. Mini's just aren't that great of a projector, too much foreground light. They're cheap, easy to work with, and are much better than halogen, but there's better out there. Quads do look good in pretty much everything. I'd love to retro a mini in my foglight spot.

Sure. Plan to replace the outers with FX-R or better down the road. I got pulled over last night and accused of having high beams on, plus a tint ticket and other goodies to go with that. Looks like it'll be just the outers while driving anywhere around here... I did order 3,000k bulbs for the inners so it'll be one set or the other depending on conditions.

A HUGE THANK YOU extended to Maven for making this set of retros for me.

EVOX-R Projectors
Iris Shrouds
Morimoto Microcontroller Harness
PNP functionality
LED switchback turn signals
Morimoto 5Five ballasts
Genuine OEM Philips 85122+ bulbs

QUOTE=Maven;6268813]Sssweet has a set of EVOX-R projectors, Iris shrouds, Morimoto MicroController harness, Morimoto 5Five ballasts powering genuine Phillips 85122+ bulbs at 50 watts

All the electrics:




Side markers epoxied in place:


Badass tinted lens on left, basic clear less expensive lens on right (Sssssssweet went badass). Never seen either vendor here use these.


Drivers side aimed and mounted but not fully secured.:





Harness modified for Switchbacks, but still able to be used with regular bulbs if necessary without cutting anything. Others can feel free to copy this setup





Passenger side done.

You can do whatever you want. But you S H O U L D N T do that. They dont put out enough light for primary lights, and theres no high beam.
