also be sure its legal in your state. i've heard lots of horror stories about aftermarket HIDs, glad i didn't get them. i did however have my projector housings upgraded by an internet vendor i wouldn't recommend. im pretty happy with my lights but i've wasted $125 between two sets of light bulbs i thought would be upgrades. the stock ones work well.

I did a great quality Philips HID upgrade and haven't had any trouble with oncoming motorists, police, or any other issues. It was my first attempt at HID and was uneventful. The upgrade to my visibility was well worth the time it took.

Because we have stock halogen projectors HID kits work well. Not as good as a a actual retrofit though. But at least we have a cutoff line unlike some reflector housings which have light scattered everywhere. The headlights need to be aimed mine were too high after I installed my HID's.

Can do guys I live (PNW) Washington. Bradze your lights look a little black on the side of them from pics I've seen of your car. Also was it hard to blacken the window liners? I think on my car they are silver.
