    I heard of doing this through a buddy of mine and I would like to get it done to my truck. My question is, is their a single xenon projector out there rather then a Bi-xenon projector, because it seems like a bit of a waste if I already have a set of highbeams and do not need the high and low beam from my HIDS. Second what is the risk?

    Those are questions best left to a company the specializes in retrofits.

    Do you want a single bulb to do Both? A new housing?

    What I want to do is use the projector HID as my low beam, but most companies only make Bi-xenon projector housing. Meaning that the light can be used as both a high beam and a low beam setting, by using a shield to cover some of the light. That's the source of my problem, because I figure I have high beams already due to Chevy's design of using separate bulbs for the high and low beam, so if I could find a single xenon projector, logically it would probably be cheaper, but I can also use a Bi-xenon which will still work but it cost more.

    no I understand the point as to why use HIDS for high and low beam. What I am saying is I want to use my low beam and put a projector in the housing to concentrate the light. Getting a High Beam HID seems like a bit of a waste, mainly because the projected HID should supplement the high beam if not supersede it, for safe road driving, where as the high beam is used if drivers piss me off.
