    By any chance would it be the same for the OEM HID projector version?

    Yes and no.
    The HID itself isn't like the projector, so it's not plug-n-play. There's additional wiring involved for the ballasts which isn't covered in this article.
    The DRLs should be plug-n-play.
    The parking and turn-signal require the same custom harness outlines in the DIY.

    Jasonandre, awesome writeup! Just finished my harnesses and a relay harness from scratch too and they turned out awesome. I just got a pair of hid projector headlights from UAE and was just about ready to test run when i realized im missing 1 turn signal socket, same one that you`re using here. Now i can modify my harness and use a part# 33303-tr0-A01, but id have to modify the socket even. You wouldnt happen to know a part number for that 2 pin turn signal socket would you?

    I wish I did. I just assumed everyone received the socket with wires like I did. I'm still shocked they're selling these headlights without them.

    Darn, time for plan b then. like I said not the biggest deal though...trim 2 tabs, put some extra material under the gasket to take up slack and utilize just one element in the bulb (or 2 out of 3 contact points in the socket)when wiring it up and bingo! Maybe ill do a writeup on socket modification if others are experiencing the same thing. Either way I definitely would not have tackled this whole project w/o your diy (bows to master) lol

    Honda sells the clips and pigtails you need. I can't remember the part number off the top of my head but it's in the retrofit thread I made.

    You're faster than me. Lol. There's also a 3 pin clip that's 306 I think.

    Got the clips and pigtails, i finished making the harnesses already...it's the actual 2 pin socket that the wedge bulb plugs into that I dont have I've been trying to find a compatible part from a usdm honda/acura, but no luck yet, so I'll probably end up modifying the 3 pin socket instead

    Awesome I wish they came with black housing. Still I may buy them. This DIY will really help.
