From what ive read on the retrofit thread, the ECE e46 projectors fit in there pretty much perfectly. Just scroll up and read T_mo_T's thread about how to retrofit. He gives u all the information u need there. For me, im going to retrofit the TSX projectors, since noone on here has done it yet, im hoping to be the first. I should receive my projectors and HID kit sumtime this week. But if ur looking to do a retrofit, good luck with it.

Go with TSX projectors, if u install them first before i do, tell me how much modifying needs to be done. But if i get it done first, ill tell u. So we&#39;ll both be the ones with a TSX retrofit.
