TRS Tech: BMW E46 Bi-xenon Projector Headlight Retrofit with Morimoto Mini 6.0
We demonstrate the use of our Bi-xenon Mini H1 Stage III kit on a BMW E46.
Very little modification is needed to perform the install. Only a little
bit of trimming to the interior of the bulb holder and a small hole needed
to be drilled in the stock reflector.
Performance and looks are vastly improved compared to stock with this setup
We used our Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 Bi-xenon projectors, E46-R shrouds, 9006
Standalone Canbus harnesses, high beam splitters, the Morimoto 3Five AMP
ballasts, and Morimoto 3Five H1 bulbs.

Volkswagen Transporter T5 Bi-xenon projector retrofit headlight tutorial
Tutorial for Volkswagen Transporter T5 (1st generation) Bi-xenon projector
retrofit. We used a DEPO headlight for this retrofit (better price than
Projektzwo headlights). They are cheap, easy to retrofit (not permasealed
as the original T5 headlight, so they open easy with heat), and they are
0:01 remove the lens clips
0:15 put the headlight in preheated oven (200 degrees C, turn the oven off
when you put the headlight in it, because most ovens have one heat emitting
side which can locally melt the headlight unit)
0:31 Bake your headlight! :-) 3 minutes for the first time
0:40 After 3 minutes, rotate the headlight, to make sure that it's equally
0:52 Again 3 minutes in the oven.

TRS Tips: Morimoto Mini D2S 2.0 Bi-xenon Retrofit Guide
The Morimoto Mini D2S is hugely popular for its ease of installation,
fantastic high beam performance, and compatibility with the industry
standard D2S bulb type.
Complete Retrofit System:
Step 1: Remove all hardware except for the big silicone grommet and then
insert threaded shaft through the front of the reflector bowl.
Step 2: Install H4 adapter plate, with the notched side at 12:00 to ensure
projector's rotation is level. (Skip this step for non H4 applications,
manual rotation adjustment is required)
Step 3: Use a wrench to tighten the lock ring onto the back of the adapter
plate. Do not over-tighten, or completely tighten until you are sure this
will be the last time the projector will be mounted (the threads will
deform and lock on once fully tightened) Add the rubber washer behind the
Step 4: Install the D2S bulb into the back of the projector with the return
wire facing down. Then rotate the metal split- ring washer over the base of
the bulb, and add the angled rubber washer behind that (angled side down).
Step 5: Clamp the bulb into place using the bulb cap, this only needs to be
Step 6: Test fire the bi-xenon solenoid mechanism 30-40 times to be sure
that the hinges are still sliding as they should be. Since this mechanism
is made of fairly thin metal, it is important not to disturb it during the
installation to avoid future sticking issues.
Step 7: Install shroud using JB weld and centric rings.

shrouds, adding halos, aiming, and wiring for more details on those steps.
