Since you're so knowledgeable about projectors I got a quick question. My 93 has the headlight lenses that aren't completely clear. Is it still worth it to run projectors with these lenses or should I look into all clear? I heard the older BMW's ran projectors like this but I'd still like some input.

If I need all clear can I simply buy them or do I have to get a cheapo ebay headlights? If I buy ebay ones can I fit the clear ones to my stock headlights and do a retrofit?

I did search these questions for awhile now and haven't had a definite answer as of yet.

I pirchased some Projectors for my '96 Ranger and when they arrived sent them off for the "Angel Eyes" since they don't make them for the '96. Everyone that see them in the early morning and evening tell me they're the coolest thing they've seen and on a Ranger?? Way too cool!!
