My new lights, HID

Got em done friday dec 16th . Tell me what you think(i love em)

and lemme ask something. because since i have a stock headlamp, it creates a lot of glare...so i wanna get projector. but if i buy projectors, does it come with the light too(in other words, ill end up with 2 sets of HIDS) or do projectors just come the housing and people add the HID themselves

Try www.hidplanet.com for getting just a pair of projectors. Alternately, you could try retrofitting in TSX, S2000 (++good), TL or E46 projectors. No, they don't necessarily come w. bulbs, you can buy them w. bulbs/ballasts as a kit or without.

infinite02 posted this write-up he made in another HID thread about retrofitting HID into a Civic: http://retrofit1.dirtysamurai.com/

you don't have true HID's unless they are housed in projectors that's the whole point of the H and the I in HID high intensity. if the lights is scattered everywhere then it's not intense at all. if I were you I would have looked for a whole tl or s2000 assembly (bulbs ballast and projectors) you could retrofit but as it is I don't know what kind of bulbs or ballastsyou have so I couldn't even begin to tell you where to look for the right projectors.

This is only the begining of your HID journey, soon you will want less glare, more wide area, and a cool cutoff...

Nice job!

I got a question for people who know... would it be easyto do on a 2004 headlight? I don't really know anything about this and would be interesting to do it... with a projector, also!
