***OK here's my HID's***Retro Up Date with PICS 56k go watch a tree grow

Ok well, I bought a kit from HIDexpert.com everthing was good, but I decided to do a retrofit using Maxima HID reflectors instead of projectors, so there's almost no glare. Anyway this is mock up, it's not perminent yet. This a 4300k philips bulb with a denso ballast. BTW this is my first ever retro job after studying everything about HID's for months, and I used my cell phone to take these.

Looks really nice.

The best reflector HIDs I've seen are from the Lexus LS400.
The look like __________l------------

You'd think it was projectors from a wall shot.

Any reason you chose the Maxima reflectors?
I think most people opt for the IS300 ones.

Thanks a lot. I choose maxima reflectors because they're easy to work with and after months of learning and finding parts I only found one good lexus LS 400 reflector. I'm gonna wright up a diy as soon prep everthing, they should be in by Sunday afternoon. Trust me there'll be tons of pics, especailly since I haven't seen to many civics with this type of retro job.

sweet my friend has a maxima with oem hid reflectors and he's always complaining that there isn't enough light far away from the car. he says the light is all concentrated right up front.

very cool. how did you get it to blend in so well? i would have expected a big cut mark in the back where you put the housing in...

the maxima reflector actaully fit fairly well inside stock reflector. but I did have to round off everything behind maxima so it would sit deep enough for the stock lens to clear it. I'll post pics of finer details tonight.

I'm not sure it'll make much difference but I'm running d2s bulbs instead d2r which are slightly brighter so we'll see how it turns out.

That kinda makes me wish I had gone that route instead of 04+ Maxima projectors. Those are easier to come by as well. Anyway, I'm only $17 in the hole so far with my retrofit, just gotta get housings still(I'm slacking because it's just now beginning to warm up outside).
