    Lizards\'s pics are good enough, no need to disassemble your lights. So your suggestion is to go AMP connector -> D2S adapter? That actually makes it a lot easier to provide a parts list since the install is 99% the same between H7/H11/D2S. If you are good with that I\'ll make that the official install guidance.
    \n
    \nThe capacitors have a 15 week lead time, so they should be here late September/early October (not next week).
    \n
    \nThat\'s an awesome idea with gathering up legit E46 projectors, though there will be legwork involved because it looks like the online market has been picked clean. There are a ton of junkyards around here if you have the time to check them out. Ideally we could put together a package of ballast/bulb + projector + skbowe ready to go. Maybe even include the high-beam adapter.
    \r\n \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \nIf the objective is less drilling/cutting, then basic HV amp wiring is probably best, especially since that\'s what most internet ballasts use. I hate the HV wiring so I prefer the integrated igniters (like the factory setup or morimoto D2S igniters).
    \n
    \nDrilling a hole for a grommet is easy, and a few "best practices" for hole location can cover it (so people don\'t waste dust covers like me). The integrated igniters are more effort and need a cleverer solution, but the only guidance is a "what problems to expect" and "where to dremel/cut", since you can tackle it in any number of ways.
    \n
    \nOn the projector side, yeah it\'s a lot of dumpster diving, but that\'s half the fun Most newer Bosch projectors are also 2-wire actuated, so plug straight into the high beam and it works.
    \n
    \nPM me an IM solution if you have one, by the way. Not a big fan of typing on mobile Swedespeed lol.\r\n

    \r\n Got started potting today... Man that\'s a messy PITA... Wife took pics if you are interested in the process:
    \r\n
    \r\nThe 0.45 gallon ($120!) kit only did 20 pairs (40 units). Ordered another kit should be here Thursday. Will not affect pre-order ship date.\r\n

    \r\n Hi Shadow, First thanks for doing this, I\'ve loved following all your previous threads on this topic over the years.
    \r\n
    \r\nWith that said, I tried to click on the buy link on your website; it just takes me to my homepage on Paypal. It doesn\'t seem matter which batch I choose.
    \r\n
    \r\nAm I missing something?

    \nThanks for letting me know. It looks like I inadvertently mucked up the PayPal code the last time I edited the quantity remaining - it is apparently very sensitive to line breaks inside of their form.

    \r\n Rough stab at install guide is up: https://www.skbowe.com/a/2017/07/13/...initial-draft/
    \r\n
    \r\nMy original Pre-KBOWE was still working, but I figured I should be the first guinea pig. Super easy to install, 15 minutes max (not including HID install). Took longer to take out the original KBOWE...
    \r\n
    \r\nI will include two stainless M8x1.25 nuts, four 8-inch zip-ties, and a piece of 80-grit sand paper with each order so all you technically need is a 1/2" or 13mm wrench. You can totally do a better job, and if anyone wants to take better pictures I\'ll gladly use them for the "official" install guide \r\n

    \r\n lol yeah that was once I realized how long it would take to go over each step...
    \r\n
    \r\nBut nobody has any suggestions for the install guide? Because that determines how long I cut the wires tomorrow. Based on that the final #s are looking like:
    \r\n
    \r\n12" - input from headlight
    \r\n6" - output to ballast
    \r\n9" - ground braid
    \r\n
    \r\nJust so there isn\'t a ton of extra wire back there. Thoughts?\r\n

    \nLet me clarify (also edited above) "nothing will explode"
    \r\n
    \r\nDepending on you kits wattage and design, it might trigger a hidden (silent) short circuit DTC (aka VIDA code) for a headlight circuit out of range low. If this happens, that side will be disabled until you remove the key and restart the car. There will be no warning displayed, and switching from 0 to II while the car is on (or the key is in) will not re-start the ballast. Restarting the car in position 0 will probably result in another error, making it seem like a fuse is blown or something is hooked up wrong.
    \r\n
    \r\nBut rather than explain all of that and have to deal with confused people, the "official" guidance is disable DRL.\r\n

    \r\n Received mine today. Ordering a 35w morimoto ballast and some d2s bulbs this weekend. Also still need to find a dealer to deactivate my DRLs. I know, im slacking.

    \r\n Don\'t let the DRL disable hold up your 35W install - just keep LSM in II until you get to it. Every SKBOWE runs a 50W Morimoto kit for 10 minutes on simulated DRL during testing (if it can run that, it can run anything) so nothing will explode ** if it gets switched by accident. It\'s just not great for any of the stuff long term (especially on a hot day after driving hard, etc), if it was always on DRL it\'s something like taking the expected life from 20,000 hours to 5,000 hours.
    \r\n
    \r\nBTW do you know the other dude in Philly?
    \r\n
    \r\nEdit:
    \r\n
    \r\n** Depending on you kits wattage and design, running a KBOWE + HID with the LSM in Position 0 might trigger a hidden (silent) short circuit DTC (aka VIDA code) for a headlight circuit out of range low. If this happens, that side will be disabled until you remove the key and restart the car. There will be no warning displayed, and switching from 0 to II while the car is on (or the key is in) will not re-start the ballast. Restarting the car in position 0 will probably result in another error, making it seem like a fuse is blown or something is hooked up wrong. If this happens, take the key out, turn the LSM to II, and restart the car.

    \r\n...But rather than explain all of that and have to deal with confused people, the "official" guidance is disable DRL. Alternately, you can disable Position 0: https://www.skbowe.com/a/2017/09/27/...ion-0-disable/

    \r\nCan you extrapolate a bit on the position II possible error? What kinds of ballast are susceptible to this error? Here in Canada we can\'t really disable DRL, so I just want to leave it in the II position\r\n

    \nThere is no problem leaving LSM in position II.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe only problem comes with LSM in position 0, DRL disable helps if you forget about this. I will soon post info on how to modify LSM connector to make 0=II, as alternate way to ensure no problem if it\'s set to 0 by mistake.\r\n

    \nI was referring to the "hidden error" you mentioned, and the light turning off and having to turn off the car to be able to turn it on again. If it happens only with certain HID ballast (brand? wattage?), I just want to avoid buying these and but ones that do not cause any error\r\n

    \r\n No. And I probably was going to do it anyway. Actually, I have a FPS, TCV, and AC clutch to be reshimmed. Its been too damn hot to work on anything lately.

    \r\n Yeah, I understand. I\'m just forgetful some times and wanted to idiot proof it against myself. Plus, last time my wife left it in II overnight and killed the batt. Anyway, I ordered a cheap Kensun 35w kit from Amazon and it is supposed to arrive tomorrow. So I might install the projectors, and everything else tomorrow night if I can get around to it. Just finished wiring my 30a/240v brew panel today and everything works except the contactor coils. Now I have to troubleshoot that. Ill probably just do the headlights tomorrow though. They are more straight forward and I\'m an electrical noob so ill go with the easiest thing first I\'m sure. Thank god that these headlight housings come out so easily. Its the 5th straight day with the heat index above 100. Ill take pics and document

    \nNot a fan of Kensun. I had them on a previous car and I had to send different components of the kit back three separate times. When you finally get a working kit, they work well and last a long time.

    \r\n Installed and working. Ill get some nightshots and fine tuning tonight hopefully. Writeup soon to follow......hopefully. I did take pics and document. The only thing left to do is figuring how to splice in the shield actuator for bi-xenon. Thank you for delivering this to the community.

    \nDang son ... from your first post to this one it was 2 hours, nice work!
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'ve been lurking these retrofit posts for 2+ years now, and now that the S40 is my DD I\'m thinking about it more seriously. The thing is I hardly ever drive at night. I know that sounds odd, but if we\'re cruising out after dusk it was either in my old DD (the \'04 S80) or now the newer S80 (the wife\'s whip). I guess I need to pull the trigger though, especially with shadow\'s new invention \r\n

    \r\nThe last one from batch 1 just sold so thanks everyone who supported me in this. I will be building batch 2 when the caps get in and hopefully that will keep SS stocked for the next few years.

    \r\n Yeah, fired right up. I just went with kensun because I have Amazon prime and it had 1 day shipping. I will eventually switch out to morimoto. I just wanted to get it in. It only took less than n hour.....and that was with taking pics.

    \r\n So I can confirm that not all BMW E46 cars came with "E46" projectors...
    \r\n
    \r\nThis one was advertised as "1999-2001 BMW E46 323i 325i 330i":

    \r\n Bummer... :/
    \r\nFrom what I know, only later versions of E46 (after FL) had bi-xenons. Earlier ones only had standard ones. Both version use THE SAME Bosch projector (technically Bosch AL "E46") but with fixed or movable flapper. Like an upgraded version. At least thats what was happening in EU markets. I guess the safest choice is to ask for pic of projector from the lamps maybe...
    \r\nAs for price-wise, not sure how much parts for beemers are in US, but in here it was much cheaper for me to get brand new aftermarket projectors (already with clear lenses) than trying to source used OEM ones and replacing the lenses. Maybe worth considering?
    \r\n
    \r\nBTW on Kensun kits - Have been using their ballasts for 2 years now on 2 cars - had an issue on 1 ballast that died month after purchase and was replaced FOC no problem, all other still work as new. For the price you can get them, I think its a very good product comparing to other nonames sold for similar money on Ebay.
    \r\nSadly, sourcing Morimoto or anythng decent in EU is almost impossible :/\r\n

    \nInteresting and good to know. Yeah it looks like the 2006 coupes have bi-xenons, but others do not.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe one pictured above does not have ignitor-on-bulb, there is a separate ignitor unit just like the aftermarket ones (well, much larger) - basically the equivalent of an AMP ballast + D2S converter.
    \r\n
    \r\nThis is convincing me more and more that the OEM projector is fine w/rebased except for the lens. It is just so unlikely that the ellipsoidal reflectors have different profiles. Maybe I\'ll take this one apart and replace the lens with a screen to see how well it\'s actually focused, and do the same with the OEM projector + rebased bulb.

    \nThe nice thing about the SKBOWE is you can run any ballast you want - and when the ballast dies the car tells you that a bulb has failed! If Kensun is the new DDM Slim but with 1-day shipping, I say go for it.

    \nHave you had a look at HID50? They primarily sell for motorcycles (which have a much harder life than cars) but do sell car kits too. The owner (Les) commissions his own production runs and (like me) uses only top-notch components. They were one of the first 50W kits on the market, and they still have some of the best products out there. Pretty expensive and inconvenient to ship to the US, but if you are in the UK or IE it\'s worth checking out.\r\n

    \nWell, just to add to confusion - E46 coupes in xenon version here only bixenons (as to my knowledge). The defining feature of those lamps were all-projector lenses (both for low beam and halogen-high beam). E46 4door from later production years had free form long beams reflector in either case (xenon or bixenon) so it was pretty hard to distinguish them.
    \r\nAgain - its from my observations from EU markets, cant speak for US.

    \nohh, cool, havent seen this before. Interesting.
    \r\nNever doubted that OEM Bosh will be higher quality, however as I said its much harder to find a set in good shape here, plus its more expensive if found. PLUS heard some stories on problems with rivetting out the originals and problems with fitment. I wonder if there are better and worse aftermarket kits, or all of them are from one chineese factory anyway Sadly didnt have anything to compare my aftermatket ones to...

    \nHmm, I actually come across this website once (I bet , reading one of the archives of you trying various ballasts :P) but was scared by the price of 40GBP per 1 ballast + shipment... :/ I ended up getting Kensun for 20Eur for TWO including delivery (Amazon rox! ) using cheeky trick of ordering a cheapest kit with most retarded Kelvin output and bulbs not fitting my car (IIRC 8000K H9 bulbs ) as it was cheaper than ordering just 2 ballasts alone!
    \r\nBallasts would come the same and I had bulbs already anyway so hell yea! \r\n \r\n

    \nI\'m staying out of the optical performance discussion (or trying to ) - my comment was purely from a material quality standpoint. From what I understand the TRS replicas are plastic reflectors where the OEMs are aluminum. The aluminized PVD reflective coating will burn through much faster on a plastic reflector than a metal one (and faster still 50W ballasts). Plastic reflectors can not be cleaned without scratching, metal ones can be cleaned with optical tissue and reagent-grade acetone or isopropyl. While there is no limit to the number of times a metal projector can be disassembled, the threads in a plastic reflector can only be used so many time before they break down.
    \r\n
    \r\nAlso the TRS replicas are currently out of stock, and I don\'t think they are planning to get more...\r\n

    \r\n Sorry I haven\'t been able to reply - I can spare weekends but my weekdays are a solid 8-6 workday. This weekend I\'m planning on replacing my LCAs, and since nothing seems to go right for me the first time, I\'m sure it\'ll take me time.
    \r\n
    \r\nJacob - I summarized the E46 situation before, but the bulk of the story is pretty dense and uninteresting. In short - "E46" projectors don\'t really exist...it\'s what we call Bosch Automotive Lighting\'s projector mounting and bowl dimension standards first introduced on - you guessed it - the E46 3 series. That means they have lots and lots of versions over the 2 decades they\'ve been using those standards. AL\'s consistent dimensioning is a big reason why our stock halogens (also an "E46" variety) are so easy to swap out. Pretty much every headlight with an AL logo on it is using the "E46" standard in one form or another.
    \r\n
    \r\nThere are some designed for D1S, D2S, and D3S - some with twist-on plastic clamps, some with split twist-ons, a bunch with integrated clamps (look for the octagon!), the varieties go on...
    \r\n
    \r\n-' + '-' + '-' + '- There will be lots of links and images below here! -' + '-' + '-' + '-
    \r\n
    \r\n Gen 1 (as I call it) is aluminum with a vapor deposited aluminum finish, comes in single and bi-xenon flavors, and was mostly found in D2S form, but also came in two D1S flavors: Split-ring (1) and metal holster (1) (2) Lots of early models had single-xenons, which are easy to distinguish due to their lack of a shield solenoid and associated PCB (1) (2)
    \r\n
    \r\nThe single xenons we don\'t give a crap about, but they are on Late D2 Audi A8, Late E38 BMW 7 series, and maybe W220 Mercedes S-class.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe glorious, all-powerful bi-xenons can be found on quite a few things. The D2S ring versions are on:
    \r\n
    \r\nThis list is not exhaustive, but the ring ones seem to predominantly be on the bona fide E46 3 series.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe D1S metal holster versions may not be more common, but were found on (from what I can tell) not only more models, but more recent ones, too:
    \r\n
    • E70 BMW X5(1)
    • W221 S-class(1)(2)(3)
    • 06-11 Cadillac DTS(1)
    • E90 3 series(1)
    • W204 C-class, B6 & B7 Audi A4(1)
    • Mid-late L322 07-12 Range Rovers

    \r\nThere are a few one-off varieties that use the "E46" dimensioning and guidance, but are otherwise custom designs. The Ford Explorer bi-halogens and Fiat 500 projectors are the best examples I can think of. Some other random GM cars use E46 dimensions, as well.
    \r\n
    \r\nGen 2 is what is still in use on cars you can find on dealer lots today. The Germans have also expanded their territory, as this design is on many more American cars than the early models. Since AL decided to make a one-piece bulb holder and integrate it with the projector, they come in all kinds of tasty xenon flavors, from D1S and D2S to mercury-free D3S and D4S. All that changes among them is a small notch on the bulb holder to accept a particular base. The big change with this gen is the bowl geometry and construction - the bowl is a bit fatter and made of Silumin. The vapor deposited coating is also thicker and localized to the reflector bowl, giving the exterior a distinct, raw cast finish. The thicker layer of vapor deposited aluminum and the sheer age factor means this is very likely to be the most durable variety of the bunch.
    \r\n
    \r\nLuckily, these seem to be the most common on Ebay. They\'re just never labeled "E46" if you look to buy them, so good luck finding them. You can find them on:
    \r\n
    • KL Jeep Cherokees(1)
    • Most? Lincoln MKXs(it even comes engraved!)
    • R56/F56 Mini Coopers and probably other Minis since 2007 (1)
    • Cadillac XTS(1)
    • W205 C-class 2014+
    • B8 Audi A4/S4(1) (2) (3)
    • W166 M-class possibly also W164?
    • X166 GL-class
    • PF Dodge Dart ...yeah, seriously!

    \r\n
    \r\nIn fact, even Volvo has their own one-off version of the gen 2 E46 (1), which you can find on all 08+ S40/V50s with xenons. It has a shorter lens cradle with a much more convex lens. Shame they dropped these so quickly, as these projectors are really, really nice - widest beam pattern and sharpest cutoff of all stock E46 designs I\'ve seen.\r\n

    \r\n The acme reps I got on clearance from TRS are actually pretty good quality so far(time will tell) and came with pre-installed clear lenses.

    \nThanks! Took a while to put the links together since half of my bookmarks were broken...

    \r\nI dumped the TRS replicas within a few months of buying them. They may be hassle free but the Chinese clones are almost all garbage. Bad beam pattern, poorly aligned hotspot, and bad bowl geometry and reflector quality. All they had going for them was "clear lens!!1!" My experience with OEM projectors has been worth the digging, and I\'m buying a few sets to hold onto and resell to make this a little easier for others.\r\n
