is it just me or did you change the headlights from 02 to 04+ SI heads? i always thought you had the 02 heads, and the reflector on the right bumper is missing as stated. nevertheless, your ride is very well put together. those HIDs are HOT

Both of reflectors are missing, one of them is broken.

Nice z-lines on the projectors! For once somebody on this site went HID and did it properly with a complete retrofit, no more rebased DS2 bulbs in stock reflectors and loads of glare. Props for a good job!

his isn't a retrofit. it's all OEM from a LHD CTR.

regardless, the egg is looking great (minus the missing reflector and the dent in the trunk).

Thanks for comments.

Dent on truck, yea.. I could probably pop it out myself.
Didn't have free time to do.

I took apart headlights yesterday and projectors are identical as TSX's.
Retrofit can achieve output like that.

Planning to get replacement markers soon.

Need new tires or new set of wheels.. coming soon in couple weeks.

Nope, 04+ headilghts are similar without projectors..

For CF trunk, Maybe.
Not too crazy about cf trunk, they do look good, but i rather put that money towards brembo 5 lug swap.

You're both right--it's an OEM retrofit from a CTR. Retrofit implies OEM.

I think you need to adjust the rear camber on your car--unless it's a track-only car, you're wearing down your tires. Headlights are very nice.

I already have adjusted, With the drop i have.
That's rear camber angle I want for now.
Can't go any straighter, because tires will hit inner fender.

I need new tires anyways, maybe new set of wheels.
