Do want!! Install and show us the cut-off pattern!

I used to drive an Audi S4 and going from those HIDs to the Miata's headlights was a serious downgrade...

Wire harness I got needs a outside power source. Where's a power source in the engine bay that can power headlights? If anything I'll just run a wire from trunk to the bay. Fog light wire is already taken by my fog lights.

Take the lid off the fuse box, remove the 10mm bolt in the center that holds the ring terminal to the distribution block, feed the headlight wire into the fuse box from the bottom, and put the bolt back in, such that it holds both the ring terminal that was there and the headlight terminal in place. This is exactly what I did for the headlight project that I just finished. It's clean, simple, and effective. The main line that goes into the fuse box comes from the battery so there's no sense in running a new wire all the way back there.

I relocated my battery in the 240 to the back as well.

Ran into 3 issues that I'm not going to workout for a while so don't expect update for a while. Less Clarence than I thought. And I broke the cover on one housing.

Yeah. Got the shitty eBay housings and retrofitted a projector. Ran them today. Holy ****! These things put everything on the street to shame. Perfect cutoff. Fairly wide. Not s2k wide but lights up both lanes without blinding anyone.

Nice job on the retrofit. I plan on doing the same thing with Morimoto Mini D2S projectors in eBay housings.
