Does Projector headlights come with HID?
 
This may be an obvious question for most, but I am sick of my yellowing/crappy headlights and am ready to change them to the projectors like on the C6 vettes. I am looking at a few on ebay, but am not sure if you also need to get the HID conversion kit seperate. Where are you guys buying your stuff from?

Does this look legit?

Do I need to get the HID conversion kit in addition to this item for the projector/HID to work?

No, the projectors do not come with HID's. They come with normal halogen bulbs. The type of bulb they use is kinda cheap, and the projectors aren't actually designed for use with HID's, but you can get HID conversion kits for them. You just have to buy 'em separate.

I have seen websites that do sell the headlight + the HID conversion as a package. But it still is normal halogen then converted to HID's.

What are the projectors designed for? I thought they fit the HIDs. So H1 bulb is a halogen bulb? I saw that on one or two auctions.

What do you mean normal halogen then converted to HIDs? You mean the headlight fits the halogen and you make your conversion?

All it is, they sell you the headlights, and the HID kit.

The projectors are designed for halogen bulbs. While they aren't ideal for HIDs, they are certainly much better than factory housings.
