    You can buy a pair of retrofits :p just gotta ask the right person

    As well for those headlights, it should plug an play since I had a very similar pair just different design. But i mentioned if you putting HID's to figure what bulb size those headlights are because that's what I did with my old pair.

    URD short throw shifter, halo projection headlights, 8000k hids in headlights and foglights. Made my own color matched satoshi with homertaco mesh.
    I recently installed a set of spyder halo projector headlights and you have to do minor wiring for the LEDs and halos. The set I ordered off of eBay came with hids

    Those are headlights.

    They've been in motor vehicles for quite some time now. You use them at night or during inclement weather to avoid running into trees or over other people's children.

    hey man im in the same boat. What I have learned so far is that its a hit or miss without the retrofit. If your looking for quality light distribution and craftsmanship , a retrofit is the way to go. Those CCFL lights are ALL over ebay, and looking at reviews its really a mixed bag. Lots say the lights didn't fit correctly, LED's burned out within days, Light distribution was horrible , HID's melting the plastic etc. But then theirs the other half that absolutely love them. For an HID conversion into these light housings I belive the bulb youl need is a H7. The shortened HID. That's were I get confused. I want to pick up the same style , just for looks , and still want to maintan the same quality the OEM housing/bulbs give. Or better.
