  • Which bi-xenon projector should I use?


    I have a BMW 523i E39 with xenon facelift headlights that are really bad because of burnt projectors. I'm therefor looking into replacing the projectors with a set of bi-xenon projectors but don't know what to get as I hear different opinions wherever I go.

    The projectors I've been recommended are:
    1. Morimoto EVOXR 2.0
    2. Morimoto Mini D2S 5.0
    3. NHK G5-R
    4. NHK G5-EX
    I've found that the differences are the intensity at the hotspot as well as the width and cutoff of the beam pattern. Which one would be the best allround option? I live in Sweden if that has any impact on the best choice. Also, anyone here from Sweden that knows the legality of and upgrade like this?

    Thanks in advance!

    If your car came with OE HID, I don't see why swapping the projector would be illegal, unless they do fancy measurements for inspection.
    I'd go with the G5-R as I like the beam, but whatever fits into your headlights the easiest would be better than the burnt bowls.
