    I have done a couple of retrofits on previous cars of mine, I have used TSX (like our accords) projectors and then more recently S2K (Honda S2000). I have also got LR3 projectors which are from a Land Rover Discovery and Honda Edix (same projector as TLs but rhd). Dependent on whether you want Bixenon or if only low beam projectors then try to get S2K projectors you will not be dissapointed.

    Japanese Kioto and Stanley projectors tend to perform better than the european projectors like Bosch/AL and Hella, just need to watch the size of the projector as some are quite large, and also ensure you are purchasing rhd projectors as most are not switchable.

    Hardest part is probably getting the cutoffs to be perfectly level, especially with projectors that have a small step with a straight sharp cutoff. I am very tempted to do a Quad retro to my M3 similar to a few others, just slightly nervous about hacking the lights up as not had the car that long.
