    This won't answer your question but....

    I know people who swear by DDMtuning's HID's even tho they are super cheap......but they've all said that shipping could take up to a few weeks to get to you from wherever they are in china. Just sayin...

    Please dont just but a plug and play kit. Take the time and do it right. I am currently performing an HID retrofit and its not as bad as it may seem.

    I am lucky enough to have LightWerkz.net close to where I work and seeing the different projectors in person I am more then happy to spend more to do it right.

    It is safer and less expensive to do it right the first time. Then you can enjoy it and not worry about it.

    If you don't want to spend the money on proper HID equipment, you can do a lot with just replacing bulbs...

    Lows: H11
    Highs: 9005

    ----------------------

    H11 to H9 modification:
    H11 to H9 conversion. DIY with temps - NASIOC

    Buy these bulbs:
    Amazon.com: Philips H9 Standard Headlight Bulb, Pack of 1: Automotive

    1350 lumens (H11) vs 2100 lumens (H9)

    ----------------------

    9005 to HIR:
    HIR bulb base modification

    Buy these bulbs:
    Philips 9011 Standard Headlight Bulb, Pack of 1 : Amazon.com : Automotive

    1700 lumens (9005) vs 2530 lumens (9011)

    ^^ I did this and it was a great bang for your buck mod. When the time comes I will be doing a proper HID retrofit. Had a plug in play in my old RSX and it worked for 6 months then it was a pain. It all started going wrong and breaking and went back to a stock set up.

    Moral of the story is do it right the first time!
