How do i convert my piaggio mp3 500 2015 headlamp from H7 to H4? I notice some of you did that! I want hi beam and low beam to light the same time but on H4. So I can use like bi-low beam and bi-high beam. Please advise

you need to replace the mirrors inside for H4 ones

Got a kit in stock and now fully adjustable with the adjusting screws

So you just pull apart the headlights, remove and replace the reflectors, replace with H4 bulbs?

I assume you need some sort of relay to make both bulbs light too, correct?

Do you have any pics or something on your website that shows what I'm replacing. I can't figure out how just replacing reflectors is all that's needed. What about the bases for the bulbs, they're completely different.

Interesting. Since the reflectors are shaped differently for low and high beam, do you modify one to match the other, or modify both? And then you also have to mod the bases for the bulbs since the H7 and H4 are different? I wish you were in the US so shipping wasn't so stupidly high.

Looks like both reflectors are removed and two new h4 lamps complete are fitted in their place.

Do you recommend the black or chrome for the best look Maksor ?
