    The site is called theretrofitsource.com (http://www.theretrofitsource.com/index.php) but like Mcjosh said. theyre expensive, and although that product is freakin sick looking, for my application would look like a fat girl eating a salad.. just doesn't look right. Personally i don't think they look all that bad. :notsure: but thats just me. thanks for checkin it out tho.

    stock.....for now...
    +1...

    HID's in stock housings will just blind oncoming drivers, annoying and dangerous.

    Reminds me of the BROS driving around in their honda civics w/ HID bulbs in stock headlight housings because they think it looks like the "cool blue lights on BMW's..."

    :rolleyes:

    No, but I like to see when there is oncoming traffic. HID set up in stock housing, especially in a high vehicle, is incredibly bright for other cars. Thats why they are neither sold OEM on vehicles like that, or legal.
    Dont have to be a "mod judge" to have respect for the rest of the driving public.
