    Windshield wiper nozzles,
    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

    Windshield wiper nozzles,
    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.

    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.

    Windshield wiper nozzles,
    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.

    @98_Mud - So you bought the Spyder housing, changed out the HID's to 10k's and hate them?

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