    Upgrading bi-xenons

    Hi
    As a winter project, I'm upgrading/modding my headlights, as I got NO light at night...
    The reason is a faded/burned reflector..

    The easiest way would probably to get the old reflectors re-"chromed"
    But Ive got a feeling that it would be something to be done at every service..
    Every bi-xenon from the B6 Ive seen, had the burnt reflectors..

    Here are my current reflectors:

    So Ive bought new projectors with 100% clear lenses...
    But they are not p'n'p..
    I need to get the plate out, that the projector is fitted to...
    And then make some brackets for making it fit..
    But I Think its a good upgrade for very good and aestestic outcome

    Here are my new projectors:

    Upgrading bi-xenons

    Ive found out that they are replicas of the Q5 Koito.. Been told they are 2. Generation Valeo..
    Actually I dont Care.. I just Care that the'll work...
    But fitting is a bit tricky..
    They have same lenght, but fitting holes are off..
    And the solenoid for the shield is in the way, so I have to cut some off the plate the projector is fitted to..
    Not something you will se when all done..
    But they are bought at:

    I also found at some site called alibaba.com

    Upgrading bi-xenons

    As Said.. Every bi-xenon Ive come across had burned reflectors.. Probably because of bad design... Thats why re-chroming the reflector would be as a final solution.. Seen some on eBay..

    So my plan is now, after Christmas, to dissable the hole housing and fit the new projector.. Would be cool if i came across some new lenses for the housing..

    Just thinking they are expensive at Audi/vw
