    '13 WRX Quad Projector Retrofit

    The first 'major' mod on the car... Currently at 485 miles at the creation of this thread....

    Thanks to the guys at Retrofit Source... Always coming through for my HID needs. For this project I used:
    FX-R Projectors
    Mini H1 Projectors
    Iris Shrouds
    Morimoto 5Five Bulbs/Ballasts
    Morimoto 3Five Bulbs/Ballasts
    I think that's it aside from the hardware and paint to make it all work.

    Anyway, pics: (May not be everyone's cup of tea, but you don't own my car so... )







    One of these days when it's not raining, I'll get some output shots... And the foglights are next. :]

    Yep. Although, I realized I needed to do a lot of dremeling after I test fit...

    Ehh.. .Gonna have to pass on that one.. the other stuff I can probably do a DIY for, but a quad retrofit is quite a bit harder..

    Gotta give you props for this project. It's always nice to see things done correctly. Looks nice! We've been getting a lot of people that don't understand the concept of a proper HID retrofit.
