questions about projectors

my friend just bought a 2008 accord coupe.
I want to retrofit a set of tsx projectors for him, but I need to more info on the sizes of the stock projectors that accord comes with.

can any of you tell me the lens size? are they 3" wide?

they look like 2.5"

why not try messing with the lens and washer mods before really have to decide to swap the projectors.. doing a washer mod and lens swap may have a better outcome and less work..

and plus, you'll be the first to give us an insight on what this projector is capable of.

why not. before the civics were out for public to purchase, there were many companies who already had them and spazzing them out.

well that's why the civic has so many aftermarket parts available. i just think you should play around with what you get to begin with before you start altering it.

that is true, but then again, we are talking about the accord. if we want stuff to happen, we have to do it ourselves for the most part.

So do we have an update that anyone put in HID projectors yet?

I would think this would be an easier mod then on past generation Accords considering the 8th generation is practically set up for it.

that's actually not too bad for stockies.

I guess the cutoff against a wall will really be the final determiner.

Please take lots of pics
