R33 Headlight conversion Xenon and Standard S1 / S2

Recommended Posts

Here i will show what is inside the R33 Models Headlight and what the diffrence is.

When i converted my Headlight to LHD to make them Streetlegal in Germany i found it hard to find some inside pics especially from Xenons.

It was my goal that you can undo it and leave the original Parts untouched and that everything will fit in the housing and the original rear cap will stays in place.

There is a very good Tutorial for R32 conversion here :R32 Headlight conversion

there you can find a lot of useful tips so i won`t go too much in the details cause there are a lot of individual things to consider for each conversion.

With Xenons there is a lot of space inside


I have made a Alu sheet with three square holes to fit the Plastic nuts in . There you can bolt your new Projectorlense on .



These Hella Lenses are the only ones with Certificate in Germany I don`t recommend them the Light is crap compared with the Xenons.



There is less space in the S1/ S2 Housing. It is hard to get the Bulb under the Cap. I had to extend the Bulb Connector with adittional cable.

You have to make a bezel instead of the original reflector Glass.


Use the two plastic nuts and the small balljoint from the original reflector for the new brackets .





ATTENTION: DO NOT USE THE GLASS OF THE REFLECTOR AS REFERENCE for the bulb Axis!! The Glass is inclined to the Bulb Axis  as you can see here.


To Make this Brackets is lot more work than the sheet for the Xenon!

This is only my suggestion , there are for sure a lot more solutions depending on your needs.
