I just got my system from HIDexpert.com, it actually looks pretty damn good (I'll post pics tonight) but yeah, it came with Renault ballasts and ignitors, the bulbs are d2s with the casper shield. This is better than a lot of kits I've seen. I think it was worth the price.

install is very easy the hid's come with H4 adapters so putting the bulbs in is easy. only hard part is thinking of where to mount the ballats cause the harness will only stretch soo far

Are you running projectors? If not, you should be, just to be considerate to other traffic (read: HID glare)..

Hey mrDFWmechanic I go to check out your set up next time we do a meet. I been really wanting them... and this HIDexpert.com makes it look really easy to do with the plug and play as it states. And its a pretty good price too.

Where did you get your setup mrDFWmechanic?

Its not so much the shields cutting off the beam as the actual light itself. Projectors are designed to focus the light in a certain way, whereas the reflectors a stock Civic has does not necessarily allow for that. If your car is bouncing up or down or anything like that, or on a not-level surface, you'll notice a lot of glare. People generally assume that a clean cutoff (typically against a garage door...) is evidence of a good ('clean') install and working HIDs, but it doesn't account for the light any farther ahead of you than that garage door or cars ahead of you in the distance.

This link explains it a bit better than I can: http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164646

ya the retrofit is why they look so good, not projectors. throw hid in halogen projectors and you have the same glare problem. oh well. cops will get you sooner or later and its actually a big fine for hid since they're completely illegal now (aftermarket kit).
