The current bixenon projectors are not clear (the cutoff line is not sharp) and the reflector inside the projector is not as shiny as newer ones. Hella upgraded the projectors later (Bi-xenon: Hella EvoX-R - HID Projectors from The Retrofit Source). They should be a direct fit and are bi xenon. Full disclosure, I have not upgraded yet but have them on order and will upgrade as soon as the weather permits.

I am referring to replacing the lens and the reflector behind the lens (click the link above and you'll see the picture). The Euro W8s are bi-xenon as the cutoff on the projector disappears when engaging full beams. Think of it as xenon assisting the halogen high beam.

I dont have a photo of the removal, only the projector ones it was out: Auto part Engine Automotive engine part Carburetor


Remember that the motor has to be taken out as well to make room for the projector to come out.

I have not tried to replace with Evox-R yet, and won't have the chance to until september. But I will let you know then if that isn't too late :lol:

Just to be clear, it was removed from the Bi-Xenon assembly, and the projector is the stock bi-xenon projector. In september I will attempt to replace it with the updated version which is the evox-r. My research so far seems to show that it is a direct fit. I have no idea if it fits in place of the stock halogen projectors.
