Aero headlights for hid retrofit?

Postby DeleriousZ » May 21st, 2014, 10:32 pm

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has suggestions on some headlamps to use for an HID retrofit. Looking to install some projectors into an aero (rectangular) style mk2 headlight.

The problem I'm finding is all of the glass on the headlights comes fluted, which I think is required for DOT/SAE regulation. The issue with this is that it refracts the clean beam pattern from the projector. This can blind oncoming traffic and/or just look poopy in general.
