Brand new set of ABM projector headlights. Chrome silver version w/US amber and silver corners.

Yes these aren't great out of the box. That has been fixed. Cutoff and reflector have been modified and now focus a Morimoto 2 Stroke LED down the road with superb throw and pattern!

$350 plus shipping. Price is firm, that's what these retail for in Europe BEFORE led parts and modification.

IF anyone really likes these and wants the utmost setup, I have figured out how to put real bixenon projectors into them. PM me about that.

Sold. Back in November but I just found this thread again while looking for pics of the beam pattern from these.

So, wait. You modified the beam pattern yourself? just by cutting into the cutoff line plate? Do they come with any notch from the factory, or none at all?

Sorry for all the questions haha. Have them on order rn, and was just wondering about the cutoff line after purchasing.

Made custom shields. It’s self explanatory when you open them up

Should be able to get a set. Can do the basic conversion or go to full led standalone project or HiD as well

What would you recommend between LED vs HID? LED seems to be simpler.

Ahhh what have I got myself into.....

Cost of the lights wholesale tbd.

$250 for real HID projector conversion, depending on the bulb color temp. This would be identical to the lights i built for my 99.

$TBD led projector. I havent decided what one to use, yet.

$150 for a LED bulb conversion to the existing ABMs. This is still very good and at last check, has been flawless for 3 years continuous daily use.

I'm thinking of going LED projector since, I believe, less complicated and therefore less components to fail.

The 3 shelves of p80 jewel/ecode/projectors headlights would suggest something along those lines. Usually start rolling them out about daylight savings time when ppl start thinking about having functional headlights again.
