    i dont think you'll find projectors for linea. because i searched a lot before going for the HID upgrade in my linea.

    but there is always a way to do it if you still want to get it done.

    the existing headlamp cluster is opened up and the projectors are made to fit inside the dome. you can get the chrome blackened by painting it also if you want.

    i installed projectors in my yamaha r15 that way.i do have to tell you that the lighting is really amazing but only if you are able to find a 4300k projector. do not go for the 6000k projectors

    U mean 4300k bulbs right?

    Its really easy in a linea, the lighting is exceptioannly good as u have the usual high beam + a bi-xenon so light through is seriously increased. And then u can activate 4 high beams at once(2 each side), so highways light up like a stadium

    Phew, I don't understand you. How can it be 4 high beams? We have H1 for High Beam and H7 for Low Beam in Linea right?

    Since the projector is bi xenon, it means it has both high/low beam in one, so when u switch to high beam both the headlights and the projectors high beam swith on together therefore, u get 4 high beams at once

    Ok. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong. You mean to say that I will no longer have H1 and H7 and instead have 2 pairs of H4's?

    Isnt it better to get H1 HID in high beam and H7 hid in the projectors? as it is when you switch the high beam the h1 hid will lit up and the h7 in low beam projectors stay on.
    driving with both high beams will be disaster to upcoming traffic.

    I am still confused. Waiting for Phew's reply. I badly need my lights to get it upgraded. I am not at all satisfied with the performance on the highway.
    Can you guys check this out? Is this advisable? I spoke with that guy and he told me that he is importing from China but he gives 1 year warranty.

    Italia when u have a genuine projector setup, you barely use high beam as low beam is more than sufficient, one only needs it when used as flash to move away traffic.

    Ram the projector will use d2s bulbs(not h1 or h7) and u can use normal h1 in high beam.
    So that means when on low beam ones projectors are running on D2S, and as u switch/flash high beam both the H1 and D2S will light up together, giving u better beam to move aside the traffic infront of u. This can blind oncoming traffic if you plan to run on high beam only, besides for highways low beam is more than sufficient.

    this sounds like a better set up. what are your views about the P8 HIDs with ultra slim ballasts. i am seeing it in every shop. its flooded everywhere.

    also which projectors are good ? i would love to have on in the low beam with angel eyes.

    secondly do i need to cut the reflector? or just open them and fix the projectors, align it and fix it back?

    i mean does the projector directly get hooked in the reflector hole where the bulbs are currently?
