Yes sir! Got them and the clear ring diffusers but those don't fit in the shroud even after hacking them to bits... so I'm just running the straight led ring.

You have to enlarge the back hole for these to fit, which is a lot less work than actually mounting and aligning a true projector in the headlight housing. My STi has s2k projectors in them but I didn't want to spend as much time doing that on the ranger because of school, work, and moving at the end of the month.. I simply don't have that much time to invest in doing a retro like I did years ago. So this is a compromise on price, performance and mainly time..hahaha
You could use the DDM tuning HIDS in this projector but as stated above why would you. Spend the money and get a quality HID setup. DDM is fine and I have used them on my motocycle but it's chinese garbage(not to offend anyone that uses them, it is what it is, most HID stuff on the market is garbage or extremely poorly made). It's cheap and works so far and I've been using it on the bike for probably 2 years, but then again my bike sees less than 1000miles a year, last year I think I rode it for 30 miles...
I got the entire kit back in November since TRS was offering a "christmas" coupon.
Got the following:
•2x D2S Morimoto Mini bi-xenon projectors w/ clear lenses (Low & High Beams)
•2x HID ballasts (Morimoto, )
•1x Ballast test lead
•2x D2S HID Lamps ( Philips)
•2x Shrouds/ Gatling gun
•2x Projector Centric shroud spacers
•2x metallic BIXENON bezel emblems
•2x Alcohol prep pads for the HID bulbs
•1x Plug n Play Bi-xenon Relay Harness
•1x TheRetrofitSource.com decal
•5-year worry free replacement warranty
•Personalized after-sale customer support and "how-to" PDF's are available upon request.
Think I paid something like $270 shipped for it all which I think is a great deal/value for the coupon which I think was like 20% or something like that.
By far retro's in my opinion are the best mods to do. I still get a huge smile on my face when I turn on my headlights in my STi and the s2k projectors illuminate the entire road, it's just epic.. :-)
Hope to get more done tonight!
