Hey guys i was thinking about buying blacked out headlights but wasn't sure which one to buy or what the difference was. I know the projectors in these suck .. so i was going to swap them out for my oem one .. ( anyone have a DIY link how i go about doing that?)

So the one I was looking into buying was $191 shipped ..

and then i see a lot off people on the forum talk about depo and see these are more expensive..

For the first one I do not see a brand like the second which is Depo. As for swapping the projectors I know on the Depo projectors the bolt pattern is different and won't match up.

i think you can swap projectors. I know for a fact on the depos, the design even for the 06-08 euro R ones were based off the 04-05 headlights LOL. This makes it tough for us 06-08 guys to properly mount the ballast under the headlight...for starters.

I believe the mounting points for the projectors (swap) didnt line up either. I think the 04-05 clear lens projectors would work (06-08 has frensel lens for safety).

Amrit: You should look into the heeltoe article Marcus has posted on his site.

I would get depos...they are replicas just like the first link but they have been proven. Not sure who has bought the 1st link. Maybe others can chime in.

Theres also a chance it can both be depo. Try contacting them and see who makes those headlights. Thats darn cheap.

Yes they will work fine. Al the parts are plug and play. The only difference is the size of the ballast on the 04-05 and 06+
