Completed Bi-Xenon Retrofit ( HQ Pics )

Thought I would show off my finished project.

I did my first Retrofit, On my wifes 08 Cobalt SE

Details:
Morimoto Bi-Xenon 2.5" Clear Lens MiniH1 6.0 Projectors
55W 5000k H1 DDMTuning HID kit
Morimoto 9006 Harness

They still need some adjusting and the left bulb is weak and needs to be replaced but so far I absolutely love em and am going to offer to drive my wifes car at night if we go anywhere. lol

Click for full size pictures.







Installed!









Dusk Cutoff test... RAZOR SHARP!



Looking between the two white cars you can see the light output all the way through the intersection.



I still have to adjust/aim them.... This is about 60ft from wall....

Looks great! Little off topic but what camera/lens did you use?

Canon 5D Classic and a Canon 50mm F/1.8 ( Cheap Nifty Fifty... )
Might be a cheap setup but I still love the image quality it provides....
( I sold all my good lenses, Use to do wedding photograpy )

Cool thanks! I actually have the same lens for my t3i. Just got it a few months ago but have had no time to really shoot any good pictures.

Thanks. That is why I didn't paint them. To keep them as oem looking as possible.

Here in about a month I'll be making a 5hr trip through the middle of the night so I look forward to really getting to try them out on the first long distance drive.

The only issue I'm having is the adjustment knob is for up and down only...
I don't really like how hey are automatically aimed to join together at a certain distance....
Any fix to this?

I have some video if you want me to load it I can...

That's exactly what my wife told me.

She said she liked the factory look with them staying chrome after I
showed her some pictures of chrome, and painted.

Her car. lol
