I just drilled holes in mine, I couldn't get them to stop leaking nonmatter what. I think my problem was I had too good of a seal.

Mine is exactly the same. Are you sure the bulb is seated correctly? You also said you believe yours is 8k. 8k and 5k is night and day difference in terms of brightness. As per our PM we will warranty the bulbs and get your 5k if you think you have 8k.

Has anyone tried a High Beam Transplant from any Generation Projector Headlight? If I have to frankenstein the lenses from my Gen 1's I might as well use the High beams?

Has anybody thought of or tried putting clear lenses in our foglight projectors? I noticed clear lenses at retrofit source and wondered how much better light output would be compared to stock

to those with the fx-r projectors some people say you have to cut to mount them. Do you? What part do you have to cut.

You have to cut a hole in the reflector to slide the projector back

how much better is the output compared to the morimoto minis though, is it worth the extra work?
