Save yourself the headache and avoid. If you want HIDs, save up and do a retrofit.

The light output is mediocre, and the quality is shoddy.

Retrofit: refitting a standard housing with an OEM HID bi-xenon projector unit.

www.hidplanet.com

Lots of good info on that site, read EVERYTHING if you want HIDs.

dude, Just put in your projectors. Chris hates on anything thats different than what he has. Light output should be good, just make sure you aim them properly. Post a link to the ones you have

I love my output of my projectors, its honestly just how you aim them.

Gotta aim them pretty much perfectly, not too high, not too low.

Many people on the other GA forum claim they suck but I just think you gotta aim then in that sweet spot.

The projectors are ok... they don't look very good in my opinion but light out put is alright. They aren't made for HID bulbs though. If you want HID's I'd also recommend a retro fit into stock housings. It will look better anyway, and stock housings are better than the aftermarket ones.


Anyway, welcome to the site! :)

wat

I don't hate them because I don't have them, or they're "different". I discourage others from getting them because they're cheap, Chinese made pieces of crap. The stupid LEDs burn out after a couple of months, same with the halo bulbs, and even so, the cheap look and feel really just looks terrible. To boot, they aren't even designed for HIDs and the projector cutoffs were designed by somebody on a meth binge.

Excuse me for pointing the n00b in a good direction for a retrofit and HID use.

Like I said before, retrofit, dude. Didn't you check out that link I posted before?

Nab a set of normal housing headlights, black or crystal, and keep an eye out on eBay, craigslist, other forum for sale threads for any useable OEM HID projector units.
