Okay so I'm kind of stuck trying to figure out what will work best.

I've got some SpecD projector headlamps that use H1 as a low beam. I've got halogens in there now, no issues they just don't match the Morimoto LED projector fogs and it's really bugging me.

So I ordered some LED H1s after doing some research, but evidently not enough because they definitely will not fit, the size with the fitted fan I just can't get the clamp for the bulb around.





So now I'm thinking I may need to go HID with a 6000k temp, does anyone have these headlights and gone from halogen to something else? Want to figure that out before I order a new kit.

maybe a retrofit? I haven't found many threads about modding the headlights. I got the ST3 mainly for the headlights, but I still feel like they could be improved.

Are you trying to put something other than the hologen bulb in the the ST3 headlight? If so from my experience it won't work. It would require a retro fit

So I am trying to go to non-halogen lights, but these are Spec D headlamps not the factory ST3's. Not sure of the difference honestly, but I'd imagine the projector/housing would at least be different.
