    PLEASE READ: Length was measured with a D2S in there and is measured to the end of the bulb. Diameter was measured for shroud fitting purposes and is a measure right on the edge, around the glass lens housing.

    Hella 2nd Gen Bi-Xenon (aka E55):
    Diameter = 79.80mm
    Height = 96.95mm
    Width = 106.15mm

    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 54.60mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 72.10mm
    Mounting hole distances are not measured beacuse most people

    Thank you LiquidKernel for Valeo measurements


    Mitsubishi Lancer Evo8 Low Beam:
    Diameter = 85.10mm
    Height = 86.00mm
    Width = 109.50mm
    Length = 171.40mm

    Mazda 3 Low Beam (Stanley):
    Diameter = 85.10mm
    Height = 98.50mm
    Width = 116.50mm
    Length = 167.00mm
    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 53.00mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 87.70mm
    Width(between mounting holes) = 97.85mm
    Height(between mounting holes) = 68.50mm
    High beam bracket would be cut-off on this projector, comes integrated OEM.


    Lexus RX330 Low Beam (Non-AFS, w/Subaru Legacy Shield):
    Diameter = 77.10mm
    Height(with Shield) = 109.50mm
    Height Bowl = 96.70mm
    Width Bowl = 106.50mm
    Length = 139.20mm
    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 48.60mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 90.60mm
    Width(between top mounting holes) = 33.75mm
    Width(between bottom mounting holes) = 40.50mm
    Height(between mounting holes) = 98.80mm
    This projector usually comes with a cut-off shield that has OEM mounting brackets integrated. Most would usually cut these off and make their own holes for mounting. Subaru Legacy Halogen projector is almost idnetical to this Xenon projector. We used cut-off shield from the Legacy projector as it is smaller and has mounting holes built-in. All measurements are to reflect shield replacement. Height and width measurements are also given for an actual Xenon reflective bowl.


    Acura TSX Low Beam (Stanley):
    Diameter = 71.05mm
    Height = 85.30mm
    Width = 120.80mm
    Length = 156.45mm
    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 42.00mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 96.95mm
    Width(between top mounting holes) = 100.45mm
    Width(between bottom mounting holes) = 103.45mm
    Height(between mounting holes) = 41.50mm


    Honda S2000 Low Beam (Koito):
    Diameter = 71.70mm
    Height = 105.60mm
    Width Trimmed = 113.50mm
    Length = 135.30mm
    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 41.40mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 93.90mm
    Mounting hole distances are not measured beacuse most people
    would make their own and cut-off stock high beam bracket, width is measured as trimmed.


    Lexus SC430 Low Beam (Koito):
    Diameter = 71.70mm
    Height = 100.30mm
    Width = 130.00mm
    Width Trimmed = 125.30mm
    Length = 138.30mm
    Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 43.90mm
    Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 94.40mm
    Mounting hole distances are not measured beacuse most people
    would make their own and cut-off stock mounting brackets, width is measured as trimmed because it could be trimmed a bit.


    Lexus LS430 Super Wide Low Beam (Stanley):
    Measurements for this projector are provided as "naked" - shroud removed, OEM mounting bracket removed, supplemental reflector was included in measurements. Also, assumed some "fat" (eg.: AFS spindles) would be trimmed. Where it says "trimmed", this is only an assumptive place where it was deemed best to trim without too much sacrifice. Some people will choose to trim more or not to use the whole or most of the shroud that gives this projector most of it's bulk. Please remeber that this is a very large projector/shroud combination.
    Diameter = not measured as this projector comes with it's own shroud
    Height = 117.05mm
    Max Width = 134.32mm
    Trimmed Width = 125.80mm
    Width Bottom Reflector = 124.10mm
    Length = 154.75mm
    Length(tip of the lens to possible mounting holes) = 55.95mm
    Length(possible mounting holes to end of bulb) = 98.80mm
    Lexus LS430 shroud measurements:
    Max Height = 143.62mm
    Trimmed Height = 131.70mm
    Max Width = 173.15mm
    Trimmed Width = 154.30mm

    Which dimension is the measurement from the mounting plate to the end of the lens? This would be the depth required in a lens housing to be able to mount the projector.


    I am also looking for the length from the mounting plate to the connector end of the bulb. This would be the space required behind a lens housing to mount the projector.

    I thought these might be the "seat of the lens to mounting holes" and "mounting holes to end of bulb", however when I add both of them up for the E55 projector, I get 142.7mm, which is 20.65mm less than the over all measured length. I didn't think the mounting plate would be 20.65mm thick.

      You got it right. Seat of the lens is the key word there. The lens itself is thick. This thread will give you lens dimensions:
      http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4321

      The overall length will include the thickness of the lens in its measurement. Seat of the lens to mounting holes and mounting holes to the end of the D2S will not always mean the overall length when added due to a few factors. One, I mentioned above - thickness if the lens. Another - thinkness of the mounting plate. Also seat of the lens will include a Te (edge thickness) measurement of the lens. Overall thickness of the lens also includes that. So when I measured from the lens to the mounting plate that was form the curved part of the lens (Tc-Te).

      If you want me to re-confim anything, I will be more than happy to do. I am allowing up to 1mm deviation or so. Hope this is not a big deal.

                  Here are some measurements I took of the projectors I have with a Caliper. I measured with no bulbs inside though.

                  RX330 AFS Projector
                  Diameter = 71.60mm
                  Height = 81.40mm
                  Height = 83.90mm (including bottom round AFS controller extrusion)
                  Width = 113mm (from Side to Side)
                  Length = 144.50mm (from edge of bulb holder to edge of lense)
                  (Mounting Holes At Your Descretion)

                  Valeo Highbeam Projector(9005)
                  Diameter = 82mm
                  Height = 95.80mm
                  Width = 106.34mm
                  Length = 145mm
                  (Didn't have time to measure the mounting holes but will do so as soon as I can)

                  Hella Halogen Projector (H7)/(D2S Adaptable)
                  Diameter = 79.60mm
                  Height = 91mm
                  Width = 105.90mm
                  Length = 140mm

                  Please edit any information EunosTT if you see fit. I was looking for the RX AFS unit and didn't find it so I measured one.

                      I'd like to see a comparo between the TSX and the TL

                      Acura TSX Low Beam (Stanley):
                      Diameter = 71.05mm
                      Height = 85.30mm
                      Width = 120.80mm
                      Length = 156.45mm
                      Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 42.00mm
                      Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 96.95mm
                      Width(between top mounting holes) = 100.45mm
                      Width(between bottom mounting holes) = 103.45mm
                      Height(between mounting holes) = 41.50mm

                      Also noticed that there are rings on the TL (to spread light better I've read) - does that equal the term freznelled ? Is that a disadvantage to be freznelled versus clear . I'm debating which to go with TSX or TL bi-xenon ?
                      I've read the TLs to be the best Bi-Xenons out there . If I go the Bi-Xenons route , do I lose something (output/definition/cut-off) versus the reg. HID prj (like TSX) ?
                      Are the TSX Clear Lense pre-2005 all DOT or ECE , and what about the TLs (year specifics ?) ?
                      ECE seems to be the choice to go with , why ?

                        ok, that's good to know. response just in time too =) found some tsx projectors on ebay. guy said they were "new" but i'll be fine with slightly used as long as the lenses are in decent shape. now all i need are ballasts and those fx's ^_^

                              The length of the sc430 is not 138mm. From the tip of the lens to the end of the projector with a bulb in it is 155mm.

                              the length from the lens holder to the end of the projector w/ a bulb is 138mm
