Low beam HID Lights/Ballasts - 2005 TL OR TSX
HID caps to cover the big hole on the back - S2000
High beam –STOCK
Turn Signals -2004 TL sockets with 7443 bulb
City Lights – jdm city light sockets that from icbmotorsport.com

REMEMBER- they are JDM so the flare will blind oncomming traffic. I tried to MOD the flare but semi-failed as it still flares. I'll be retro-ing TSX projectors as they will fit nicely in the Inspire housing

The way the housing in the Inpsire lights are, you won't even know they are retroed. Plus you'll get the nice cut-off that the Inpsire lights don't give you!!

don't destroy the Inspires'. If Honda wanted them projectored, they would do that but they left it a reflector housing but only using HID's.

Is there seriously enough room inside that small enclosure to fit TSX projectors in? Aesthetically how would make a bezel for it? Unless you fab one. I think 350z projectors might fit in them but TSX?

I would put projectors in the high-beam reflector, and use it as a dual-low beam.

The Inspire opening is close to 3" high as the TSX projector is 2.5". Should be no fitment problem. No need for a bezel as the TSX projector has a chrome ring around the lens. It'll be just some VERY PRECISE cutting to get them to be perfect.....


I'll post pics as I start......

You're right, for LHD!!! The flare is impossible to mod as it is a VERY complex reflector system. I opened up the lights and tried to mess with it with NO luck. Some people don't mind the flare but it just bugs me!! So retro here I come!!

Oh by the way, if it does'nt turn out OK, they'll be some Inspire lights for sale cheap!! hehe

You aim them down to compensate the lhd flare(or drove around pissing people off )?

I modded inside the housing my Right headlight by shielding the light that makes the flare...

Let me know and I'll post up what I did...

the problem with retroing is that you will somwhat loose that cool looking rectangle shaped point of light that the reflector creates on the inspires.
the 7th gen inspire MMC headlights now come with a smoked lense housing...is this the next big thing?

I looked but couldn't find an Inspire with the new lights, unless the change is very subtle.

It is kinda subtle but can you see it now. I would like a set of these Inspire headlights as well but I don't know who would be able to get them for me. I don't want the full chrome ones but the ones that have the dark/black housing like these.
