    I ordered these headlights, but still haven't decided on bulbs.. do you guys have any suggestions? I'd like for them to be bright of course, and don't mind a little bluish tint.. but I'm not too familiar with HIDs, I usually just go buy whatever bulbs at AutoZone that say 'Hyper White' or whatever haha.. but I wouldn't mind doing HID if the price is reasonable. I guess I'll also be needing new bulbs for the corner and bumper lenses as well.. Any suggestions?

    Just realized the outer edge of the corners in this headlight kit aren't going to match the chrome grille shell :(

    HID's look sick. you would have to buy a kit not just bulbs. but those headlights look pretty sick.

    my retro cost about 400 for everything, including new headlights. you can buy some premade ones as well. the cheapest one i've seen was about 599. from there, they can range up to 1400 on some sites.

    i would go to suvlights.com and get some good philips bulbs and a wire harness if you don't want to go hid. and if you do want hid, get a real retro, not a drop in kit. the lights can not properly focus that and will scatter hid light everywhere, including on coming traffic. thats bad
