    Are there any available retrofit kits for 2014 Coupe already?

    @Michal006 The Mini H1 kit will work for the '14 Coupe, you just need the H11 harness instead of a 9006.

    @FRDRICE I finished up the Spyder Retro this weekend and the H1 projectors and HID setup is awesome! I need to fine tune the aiming part, I ran outta GAF last night and called it a day. The drive to work was great this morning. FYI to those of you who wanna retro aftermarket projectors, it was a pain in the *** to do for me. I had to use a heat gun and there was a lot of trimming needed to get the projectors to fit right. But I got it done and couldn't be happier. The Spyder projectors I got sucked hard and no amount of tweaking I did worked so the projectors had to go. It might have been just bad luck on my particular set because the light out put was garbage. I'll see about getting some pics up once I've got the lights aimed straight. To reiterate, these lights are pure awesome now! Thanks again TRS!

    Glad yo hear that you're loving the Mini H1, they have amazing output for such a cheap and small projector! Unfortunately all the aftermarket headlight have shitty projectors so you're not the only one to experience that. Would've have been easier if you used the oven put I can understand wanting to use the heat gun instead.

    @ FRDRICE, I did use the oven at first but it wasn't giving me the results everyone else had so that's why I went with the heat gun. Yeah those mini H1's are great. Plus the the HID Elite kit with the xb35 bulbs is a solid package. That $#!+ is bright! Lol!
