hi guys,
i have a few question about retrofit.
Im thinking of to retrofit a TYC projector with E46 projector, and add a HID with angel eye.
but... im a damn newbee
so....
1) Which kind of e46 projector i should get?
-i dont think i need bi-xenon... just one just very good enough
-i saw some diff projector on ebay. some is 02yr, some are 04....
-some are 2.5"... some said 3.0"lens....
-and some of them call "BMW E46 Audi TT Bosch Xenon D2S Projectors"
-so is that a e46 or a TT projector????
(im so confuse)
2) Which E46 shroud should be?

3) Which HID does e46 use? is it same as accord one, 9006?

4) When u guys took off the projector from the TYC, is it only took off the screw of the tyc.
or u guys need to cut a big hole to put the e46 projector in?

5) For the angel eye, where does the power cable plug to?

Hope ppl will ans all my que.
Thank very much.

1. you sorta answered your own question. e46 is just e46..
bixenon=3inch
xenon=2.5inch
BMW and TT projectors are the same thing

2. whichever projector your getting.. if your getting xenon, get the single xenon shroud.. if your getting bixenon, get the bixenon shroud.. the e46 never changed the look of the shroud beside the size differential.

3. uses d2s, NOT d2r.

4. to tell you the truth, you should look at a diy maybe from hidplanet since your such a newby on the subject.

5. usually from the parkin lights, but like i said, you should have someone with more experience do it for you....

1. I wouldnt get the e46 projector. Because personally i think it sucks as far as output goes. I plan on using the acura tsx projectors. I was gonna go with s2k, but the tsx had a better beam pattern when color modded. Check www.hidplanet.com/forums for these things.

2. Depends on the projectors. Always check dimensions of the lense and check to see if the lense will fit the hole on the shroud.

3. The e46 uses a bulb with the base code d2s. The ballast connection should always be a 9006 if you are using the hella gen. 3 ballast. Check hidplanet.com for this.

4. The only projector that is plug and play in the tyc housing is the valeo single xeno projectors.

5. You are not goin to fit angel eyes into the tyc without major modding. I personally dont like the look fo the angel eyes.

you should really go to HIDPlanet forum.. do all the research and reading as you can there, because seriously, someone is about to flame you asking all these newby questions when they can be found there....

Go read and if you dont understand something, come back here and ask questions here.
