I recently picked up an HID conversion kit from a friends shop that fits my Envoy Denali but so far i cant find any projector headlights for Envoys any where!!! I don't want to install them into the stock halogen headlights. Any idea if there even is any? :hissy:

well this was my first time doing it and the retrofit itself took about 15 hours if I did it straight through (which I didnt) did it over a weeks time.


that doesnt include the 12 hours it took me to open up the headlights themselves (which I did this past spring) to paint the housings.. damn GM uses a permanent style sealant thats not as easy as just baking the headlights in the oven


so all in all I give it about a 7 out of 10 on the difficulty level


I forgot to add I also made clear corner reflectors as well which added maybe 2 hours to the project time

I spent $50 on the bulbs, $20 on the bulb adapters, $105 on the projectors and $30 on the E30 clear lenses

ggod for you:thumbsup: i dont have time ,skill and patient for it but i have the money:D and it turned out great!!! Envoy didn't get the ebay projector headlight like TB did cuz if it did my good friend would have swap the "projector" to true HID projector for me for free as he did on his lancer ralliart.

for what i paid for...again PRICELESS:yes:

Yea, retrofits look good! i like the ones on the envoy.

my friend did a retrofit on his 4th gen prelude using Evo Projectors (3.5 INCHES!!!) they look nice with the JDM fogs that are yellow. I'm thinking about getting a retrofit on my bravada, but for some reason, i think it wont look as good as ones on envoys or preludes...
