    Yes, but they are known to leak, have very poor beam pattern, and are not DOT compliant with an HID bulb install. Not comparable to a real HID retro.

    i added some 6k HIDs to my 1st gen projectors and no issue so far... :knockonwood:

    if you still have to buy the light housing, i would look into the retro fit process...a much better product..but if you like the look of the halo housings then i'd say go for it...i got my HIDs for $80-90..i forgot what i paid for the lights, it was a while ago...
