    First or all, thanks a million to cwise12 for the excellent guide!

    However, I'm confused about the splitter cables, and how i attach these to the new projector?
    So I'm upgrading from stock xenon projectors to bi-xenon. I should be able to split the electrical current from the full beam (ie the blue male connector in the video) and feed the new projectors. But i haven't figured out where the other end goes. There seems to be no female plug anywhere. Do i need to buy another set of splitter cables, and what would the specs be?!

    I recorded a short video to illustrate this. Thanks in advance for your ideas!

    So the solenoid comes with just raw wires. I need an extra pair of 9006 connectors and "rubber boots" which should go on the raw wires. It might be useful to add them to the list of material at the top of the guide. Or did i miss something?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your guide.
    I used it to install new EvoX-R 2.0 from Retrofitlab with 9006 splitters.

    For those who would like to do the same and install EvoX-R 2.0 instead of the EvoX-R (1.0 ?), I must warn you I had to do some mod!

    The EvoX-R 2.0 are shorter than the first version...

    When I mounted it in place of the OEM projector, I had this :


    The lens was far from the hole...

    I had to trim the support screws :



    Work done on 3 screws with the last one unmod as reference :


    And then after all screws trimmed and mounted :


    You can see on the latest picture I added bigger nuts to keep a gap between the plate and the original nut to keep it on the thread.

    I'll take pictures in some days when headlights will be on the car.

    Thank you!

    are rusting away
    Aarrrggghhh, pics are missing! Does anybody still have them somewhere? I've got a set of EvoX-R 2.0 I'm eager to install this weekend, but I've no clue of the screw dimensions or anything like that! Will M4 screws be fine? I'm planning on buying new ones, trimming them so they fit, get some locking washers of sorts and be done with it, trimming the light pod tower bracket thingies seems a bit extreme, like so:

    Does anybody have any more clues on this?

    So I took my lights apart and did a bit of digging around at a local hardware store in a hurry and made this makeshift solution out of some alu tube and some 4,0 wood screws:








    They're about 19mm in length, added washers for more adjustability. It's a makeshift solution, I'm not too happy with it, it does the job right now, but I will be taking the lights apart again to do a better job. The more permanent solution is going to be to use the old stock screws, get the washer off and cut more thread into the mounting end and use nylon nuts or loctite to keep them from undoing then add washers. That way I should retain stock stability and more adjustment with getting the beams to match up. Will update this thread when I finally get to it.

    Probably not Shiremux the housing is different unless you have xenon lights from factory.

    Mehman are they m4 threads for the bolts? I just got the projectors will probbly tackle the project next year. I don't want to shave down the towers either.
