2000 Taco projector's and HID kit?

So for my first mod, since I have bad vision at night do to using lasers in the military, I figure my first conversion should be changing out my drive lights. As of now I'm going with this projector but am a bit confused when it comes to the bulb and conversion. Please correct me if I'm wrong. The wiring will need to be changed so I know I need a harness which I'm sure will come in a conversion kit, but what bulb? does that depend on the conversion kit? or the projector?

I'm not sure if those come with the HIDs already in them or not but I just ordered a plug and play kit for my stock housing and it was a H4 bulb

I mostly want to change the housing. Anyone know of some pretty good housings out there? I have issues seeing at night, but would also like a black housing.

After looking for some more housing's I found this site that has 3 housing from different companies, for a varied price range, but I think they're all the same housing. Can I get your all's opinions please?

By 4 Car Option - $275.99


By IPCW - $294.99



By Spyder - $200.99



All of these are being sold at http://www.streetbeatcustoms.com/200...ht/Headlights/

I would say to just get a nice kit from theretrofitsource.com. the Morimoto Mini D2S kit bolts onto the reflector and is very easy to mount. here is the process. all you have to do is be able to open your headlights.

Viet, saying that you wouldnt get any of those doesnt justify. Can you maybe give me a reason why?

In the link the OP posted, the add says Not Compatible With HIDs. You can do the Morimoto swap for just a little more and have real projector HIDs.

I'm not wanting to buy them for the light but the housing and lense. If someone else has something else i can use PLEASE let me know. That's my only hold back is finding a decent housing right now.

you said you needed them for driving at night? housing has nothing to do with projector style lights.
