i have recently purchashed a set of projector headlights...But now i want to put a HID kit on it....i searched on this forum already but i couldnt find anything useful.

Does anyone have projector headlights with HIDs and if so which HID kit did you use?

im a noob lol

First things first, what bulb type is used by the projectors? (ex: H1, H3, 9006 etc)

Also, is a great source for HID plug and play kits, with a three year warranty.

I forgot, you'll need to deactivate the DRL's. You have a 2000, so a bit of rewiring is needed.

The projectors that i purchased have H1 bulbs in them. And why do you have to disable to DRLs...and i think you mean the auto sensor that it has..and is there a guide for all the rewiring.

like i said im a noob lol

DRL = Daytime Running Lights.

They HAVE to be deactivated otherwise it'll kill both the HID bulbs and the ballasts.

So its just the Daytime running lights i have to disable...even if im just putting the HID on the low beam...if im just putting the projectors i will be fine tho right

Nope. HID installation regardless of headlight type needs the DRL's turned off.

no what i meant is no HIDs on my projectors just the H1 stock light it came with

Then yeah, it's fine. I do know it'll mess with the lights anyway because of the split headlight setup.
