SMS 90mm Hella upgrade

I searched the web trying to find where Hella makes these but all I could find was the 90mm projection housing under "modular lamps" in the Hella parts catalog.

Can someone explain how the ones from SMS are more "legal" DOT wise than say a Acura TL projector retrofitted into some 7in round headlights? Unless these are for "Off road use only". Thank you in advance.

Because they sent them in and had the design dot approved. You can do it with a retrofit but the cost is crazy and not worth it. How many people have you seen get pulled over for a retro.
