Ever since I bought my R I wanted projectors, and now this is my weekend project. I got a set of free headlights off my friends GTI so it made the build a lot cheaper, total spent right now is $400, cant wait to have them on the car.

So this is what I will be using
Pair of Morimoto Mini H1 Bi-xenon projectors
IRIS Shroud
Morimoto Ballast
Morimoto bulbs: H1 5000k
Glass lenses
2001 GTI Headlights W/Fogs (drive side broken got a second set)
Gofl Headlight WO/Fogs retro fitted fog (Driver side again Broke out of stupidity page 2 to see how)

Found a 3ed set


wish me luck

Thanks to Volktuning and xenondesigncreations for all the parts and quick shipping and great prices




They are now finished !


Projectors mounted





Went for the 20th look


the Backs


hidden HID ballast


On the car

















For 2013 Iv updated them a bit. Took the fogs out because they will now be in the lower grills and added dual turns and repainted the shrouds black magic pearl, Also painted the back cap along with better sealing it. Pics on the car once its gets warmer

Make sure that you test the headlights before you seal up the glass. Meaning you fire them up and make sure that the projectors are sitting in the housing properly and that the pattern is correct. Just my $0.02 cents.
