Default projectors for retro.

i have a set of projectors out of a newer mazda

i think out of a millenia i do not know i bought them locally for a retro fit but have other plans i need to worry about my engine as of right now.

they are in perfect shape with halogen bulbs so you know what bulbs to order if you decide to go HID the pictures are from a camera phone sorry my digital will not charge.

i paid 80 each for them asking for 100 for both. will ship if i need to other than that i would like to trade for a 1.8 manifold or 1.8 oil pan and windage tray . or ebay header.

Plan on doing a 1.8 swap to my miata so any parts that could help me

Sorry, don't have much in the way of a 1.8L swap...I can make you some urethane motor mounts if you'd like though.

It would require you sending me a set of old ones unless I can find a free or cheap set locally since I basically just refill with urethane where the old rubber was.

Do you know if they're low or high beam projectors?

Or with halogen ones does it just depend on the bulb?

they are the low beam projectors the high beams usually are halogen. and these are halogen projectors. BUT you could buy a hid kit with this size bulb and it wouldn blind people like putting them into a halogen housing would.

And not fit right / look like ***....On a serious note these are WAY over priced!

for that price there are many deals to be had on ebay for less than your asking and they are true xenon housings...

well either way you could retro these and run halogen and it would not be a problem.

so if no one wants them i will keep them. it does not bother me at all. but thank you for coming into my thread and being like that.

i do not recall going into any of your for sale threads and being lame. ? ? ?

and they do have cut offs and can run hids just fine. but your right.
