      I haven't driven with them in rain or fog but I doubt that it would be of any use as they are while LED lights. I have a cover which I would use when the conditions occur.

      Please ignore this post as I cannot delete the post. I thought that the question was directed to me as there is another post in which LED bar is being discussed.

      As per the TBHP chap who has them they are pretty Ok. Hence my comment about colour temperature.

      In fact as per his pic, it does not seem to be at all blue, more like 4300K HIDs.

      I first put in 2 projectors inside headlamps



      then 2 more as aux projectors. Finally my quad projector setup is complete!



      I'm running cnlight 45W 4300K bulbs and Hylux 50W ballsts in all 4 projectors.

      I had issues with the left headlight and its currently not working but with 3 projectors, below is a video. I have a VLT70 sunfilm on the front glass, do keep that in mind.



      I just finished this project for a friend's gypsy. Morimoto mini h1 projectors inside 7inch beams

      Replying in respect with the HID illumination.

      I was reading this thread from years for my own knowledge and finally got green signal from my father to modify our Discover to improve headlight illumination.

      - Bought a Hella G3 projector(uses a solenoid power shutter for cut-off beam) for Rs.200 from delhi scrap yard.
      - Changed the wiring harness with a new one as it was all spliced and taped by local auto electrician. I used old WH to figure out which color wire goes where and works for what.

      - Dissembled the headlight unit, separate reflector and glass but heating the unit in convection over at 100* Celsius for 20 minutes, installed projector with screws, nuts and bolts with help of ruler for exact dimensions.
      - Arranged a h7 (DIY d2s socket) 55w 8k unbranded HID from a friend, fixed it inside the projector at exact focal point.
      - The tube accidentally fell on the ground and broke, bought another HID bulb from karol bag for Rs. 400, Fixed it again inside the projector with coper wire as bulb retainer and then ballast and igniter were wired.
      - I then disconnect the Yellow (AC Current) wire from headlight switch connector and left it for no use, then wired shutter solenoid and switch with relay and made proper wiring setup for work.

      Result :-

      - Damn good illumination with around 4300k because of 55w ballast.
      - The setup worked only for good 20 minutes with bike running at speed 70+ at night. It cause Battery drain and i was in pitch dark with no lights, no horn, no electric start.

      More:-

      - I now purchased a 35w ballast only for another experiment and used it on the same bulb.

      Now this setup is working good for 45 minutes max but the illumination is noticeably lower then 55w ballast. No power for horn and electric start again but the HID is still living on charging current and flickers when i press horn.
      My father has no idea till now about the battery(amaron 5ah) drainage.


      I really like the spread of Hella G3 projectors. I can not find them on website. Where can i find them if i want to buy a new pair.
      Someone told me that these projectors are OEM for BMW and Audi's.. - True?

      Hello!
      You have quite extensive mods to the headlight.
      However a Simpler, Cheaper and safer option would've been to go for proper LED bulb. You can make bridge rectifier to convert default AC signal to DC, so that LED bulb works on alternator without draining the battery.

      The only problem with these LED's are the reflections from the headlight assembly,however very good product,less heat,low power consumption and durability, using it since 9 months not a single blow out with more than 1000+ high to low vice a veersa beam switching on highways.
