HID retrofit housing

anyone know what is the part/product number of this HELLA RETROFIT HEADLIGHT? (just the projector and high beam part) or something else similar. I'm planning on using that part with a true HID, so that i don't have to lose my high beam and the beam pattern is good (not so much glare).

note that EL headlights is similar to the older gen civics, and the guy who did the conversion also using lexus reflectors to correct the beam pattern

Oooooh, looks good.

Lexus HID Retrofit to 6th gen Civic.

Hella HID Retrofit to 6th gen Civic.

I'm going to have to research this now. Cause I love my current set of HIDs, but the beam pattern could be so much better. If i find anything, I'll post it here. Looks like it going to have to be a full custom job though, get the reflectors from a true HID car, and then find a way to securely mount them to the 7th gen headlight housing.

Or, just fly to Japan, and buy the Honda OEM HID headlights for the 2001 Civic Ferio RS.

the problem with that is that their beam pattern is optimised to light up road signs on the LEFT... and if u use that.... it's gonna blind all of the incoming drivers
