Why Are So Many People Selling Their Projectors?

I'm thinking about picking up a pair of black projectors for my car, and have noticed a trend for a while. I see people selling their projectors in marketplace all the time. Right now 01EX is even trading his projectors for STOCK headlights. Is there something bad about projectors that I should know? Oh and btw, what company makes the projectors pimpdakota has? The only company I've seen are TYC.

no offense to any one who has them but i think they suck cuz u cant really make your light blue with hyperwhites like u can with stock head lights plus if u dont get the right kind then they look ugly also i heard a lot of people are having problems with them

The reason for selling is nothing cosmetic.

Projectors are just really dim... at night, you might as well turn it off, because you can't see $hit.

Hey Icey

Was wondering if you knew of any projectors that would fit the 1.7...

What kind are yours, btw? How dim are they really at night?

Thx! BTW, are you gonna get the HID conversion?

Peace!

Yeah if they are really dim, then I wouldn't even bother with them.

I don't find my TYC projectors too dim at all, and I live in a fairly rural area. I've had no problems whatsoever with them after the installation. I like the way black ones look with my car, since I'm running a red/black theme. They will look good with black window tint, black m3 mirrors, a black altezza grille, and a black lower grille.

I have TYC's and they are not dim at all. It's just as bright as the
stock headlights.

I have the same kind that PimpDakota has on his car, but in silver on clear. I love the way that they look, people always complement on the way that it looks...i have even had people mistake my car for a BMW!! No BS!! Anyways, i find that these lights are actually more blue with my hyper whites in them than my regular headlights that i had. Yes i cleared my regular lights, but i love the look of these as night. i have a really blue LED light in the city light area, my hyper whites for lows and highs, and a single filiment bulb for the turns, so tehy only go on when they are blinking, and i LOVE the look. As for as them being dim, i have no idea what those people are talkin about. I get TONS of light with mine. Maybe thats just the TYC, i dont know, cause i dont have those ones. Hope this helps you out. Good luck!

I have the TYC projectors too, they aren't dim - but if you don't have them aimed correctly you won't see a thing! (learned that the hard way) They are also a kind of pain in the behind to get to the aiming bolts on them for various reasons, so I imagine people are just sick of the hassle of getting them to work right. The stock lights are easier to deal with [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

Nobottlejustthrottle, What brand projectors did you get? If the light isn't too bad, I'll get them. No one around here has projectors, so I'd probably be the only one. Black projectors look damn good on silver too.

I have the brushed silver TYC's and I love them. They are bright and the high beams are really bright. I still need to align them, but it's not off that much.

Does anyone know what the APC black projector light pattern/brightness is on these? I am likely to be getting them as long as there aren't any bad stories about them. Lights blowing out? Leakage?

Thanks
andrew

The TYC black projectors look awesome on black civics, but i still think cleared out headlamps look cleaner... projectors reduce light output also.

<< projectors reduce light output also. >>



it didn't reduce output, it seem like it did, because it has hot spots
