Absolutely love these. They look completely OEM. How much did these run you?

That's where I bought the retrofit kit
The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications

and I bought the headlights off ebay, one for $26 shipped and the other for $23.

Ok i have an 04 redline with the morminto mini h1 kit and 9007 harness. Install went great minus 1 thing......the high beams dont work you either stick with the lows or when u plug the projector connector for the high beam flip up shield the highs are on.

Ive changed the wires around, ive doubled the wires in the same spot, etc nothing. I know the projectors work and arent faulty same thing happens with my buddies 04 redline, but he doesnt have the 9007 harness kit. When he turn his highs on his HIDs turn off mine dont do anything, but the beam indicator still comes on the dash.

Install is follows....

1.) Projectors in headlights with high beam connector lose
2.) OEM harness disconnected and relay harness connected to driver side and pass side left lose.
3.) HIDs H1's installed to projectors and connected to balasts and 9007 harness
4.) 9007 grounded to bumper and powered at fuse box
5.) Finalized install and low beams ON no high beams.


Also as my setup is now once u connect the projectors to the harness the shield flips up. I have the black wire to the OEM orange wire, blue wire to the OEM pink wire, and the white to the OEM blue wire. Im in AHHHHHH right now with these high beams on the projectors, just happy the lows wotj cuz thats what i drive with but its would be nice to inform other people and my buddy who has this setup.

I had a problem with the high beams as well, they wouldn't turn on so I did a pin swap and they're working now.
