    Swapping clear lens in a FX projector???

    I am having trouble finding clear TSX lens for the swap. Which other work just as good for the FX projector? I heard 300zx and celica. Do they work as good? Or should I just drop the xtra cash on the TSX? Also does any Cadillac, Mazda, or anything else work?!?

    i can vouch for the 300zx lens but they to are pricey, almost a direct drop in you just need to space them out a little bit

    The E30 does sit on top of the projector, and you can utilize the stock lense holders.

    I'm having trouble understanding why dropping/mixing-matching projectors & lenses... Can someone explain?

    I just bought a pair of TSX Projectors w/ Clear Lenses ready for a retrofit on my 97 Accord, but I thought the FX projectors/clear lenses(FX) were really good:

    http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=34824

    But my friend said that FSX/TFX hybrid projectors/lenses are better.

    Should I also look for FX projector/lenses in the near future and just wait and hybrid my retrofit?

    I'm just looking for clear output without blinding on-coming traffic...

    Can someone clarify my confusion? Lol, thanks in advance!
