failed VA state inspection due to...

my retrofit! hah. the guy called DOT and asked if my headlights were legal. guess what? they're not!!! yeah so i had to take off my headlights and put stock ones back on. that was alright.

here's the best part, though. he told me my tail lights were illegal! if you don't know what car i drive, i drive a 2001 honda civic sedan with stock tail lights. they're stock! so after i put the stock headlights back on, i went to the same inspection place, same guy, and he passed me. i passed by changing headlights...

so i decided to test out my new bi-xenon projectors that i have laying around in my basement. i will just tell you all this: they're FAR better than the valeo projectors i have right now.

can't wait to see the finish product. i hope you have a game plan fitting those projectors into the tyc. i had to butcher up my tyc to fit the audi a6 projectors. i thought cali is tough, but visual inspections? i'm the original owner of my 2001 and i haven't even had a smog check yet.

these are zkw bi-xenon projectors out of a bmw 3 series (the newer e46 model...they have LED tail lights also). they cost me $170, but can sell for >200. the cops don't harass me because these are OEM stuff. they come off of stock cars and i just put it on mine.

yeah VA is kinda gay like that...halogen sucks my butt. i can understand why so many people want HID, but are too lazy to retrofit.

nothing. i passed inspection with stock stuff, but they (5-0) don't need to know that...lol

and the tl or tsx projectors are out of the question. people want WAY too fuggin much for those. TL projectors can cost up to $350 JUST FOR THE PROJECTORS! and the tsx projectors would cost nearly $250.

none

I dont get it, it's obivous that the projectors are better headlights. The brighter the better right? They came off a legal car so what makes them so illegal. The law is twisted.
