    Final update!

    Output pics! I just snapped a few on my way home from work, down some dark back roads. Nothing too fancy, again I was too lazy to get out a tripod and do any really good pics but here they are anyway.

    From inside the car, low beam and high beam. Fogs were on too, they make no difference at all from the drivers seat.




    Random pulled off to the side shot.



    Standing off to the side.



    That's all I have for now, I'll see if I can find somewhere to get a good cutoff shot against a wall. The colour along the cutoff is sick!

    I like the heat gun removal better than the oven method.

    This is an excellent write up! One thing not mentioned is you will want to epoxy the shrouds onto the projectors. You do not want to find the shroud has fallen off and you have to open the headlights again to fix it! Put the epoxy on the projector ring and slide the shroud on the projector. If you do this in the opposite order you can get epoxy on the projector.

    I traded the SX4 in for a Kizashi a year and a half ago, and I really miss those lights. Hands down best money I spent on the car. Night and day difference. They were way brighter than the stock headlights and shone further and really wide, just like factory hid's on expensive luxury vehicles. Short answer, yes you can see better at night. I really need to get some hid's on the Kizashi.

    Thanks for the great write up. I wanted confirmation that you could simply slide these into our factory felector lamps. I think I will be picking up a set as a birthday present to my self in a couple of months.
    Part of me wants to paint the reflectors but at the same time it is good to have the capability to revert to stock if nessessary.
