Default G37 Retrofit Question

So i know that you can use FX35 projectors and as i understand it you can use the highbeams with the FX35 projectors.

My question is can you use the new G37 projectors the same way?

Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

are g37 projectors the same as g35? g35 are VERY similar to fx projectors... but your question is what? You can use ANY projector that you can get to fit... are you speaking of the bi xenon function?

yeah sounds like he is asking if they are bi-xenon


i just looked at a picture, it looks like they are NOT bi-xenon. there is a lamp on the inside of the headlight assembly which is probably the halogen high beam. they could also be the drl.

They are bi xenon... and apparently g35 and g37 projectors are very similar, so yea if that's what you're looking for it'll work.

to the OP, that would probably be a nice projector to retro.

any idea what other differences it has over the fx35?

They're really similar... I don't think g35 ever came with a clear lens version, only fresnel but output is very close to the fx clear. I am pretty sure they only have one shield as opposed to the fx double shield... I would just purchase whatever is cheaper, but I don't think you can swap the lens with a clear and have as good results as the fx yields.

the bi-xenon function works when power is applied to the solenoid underneath the projector. that solenoid moves the cutoff sheild down, which makes the beam project upwards
