Best way I've found....(cheapest but fairly time consuming)
Remove headlights from car
Remove lenses & trim
Secure headlight to table aimed at a wall at least 20' away
Power headlight on
Mark beam pattern
Say a prayer
Start cutting till projector fits(make sure it sits well inside reflector housing & as centered as possible)
Power on projector
Mach it up to OEM beam pattern
Get some "steel stick to tack it into place
Once its cured(about 10 minutes with projectors left on)
Carefully check for clearance issues with trim & headlight lense
If that's good use jb qwick to really hold the projector place...if not go back to cutting phase
why specifically are you interested in the m45 projectors? Not too familiar with them. check out theretrofitsource.com for other projectors with output pics & various shrouds to match your individual style.
as far as bulbs, don't cheap out...at a minimum I'd say the new morimoto's are the lowest end to really consider @ 50/pair, phillips being in the middle for above average output and still decent color & osrams being the highend...I'm dying to try their new "nightbreaker" but my CBI's are still very low hours lol with the HID bulbs, you truely get what you pay for.
