    I need to replace my bulbs today because one blew on me. The Sylvania Ultras don't seem to last very long. I was considering installing a HID conversion kit. I've looked around and don't really see many suggestions on them. Any suggestions on what to look for and what to stay away from would be nice. How can i tell a good quality kit from a low quality kit besides price. Not to mention I dont want to blind oncoming traffic. Any other suggestions that i might need to consider would be nice too.

    chances are you are going to blind oncoming traffic anyways without projectors. The factory headlights will scatter the lightout. They are not made for HID's. But there are good kits if you want your highbeams still look into a bi-xenon kit. for high/low beams.

    I would check ebay. But chances are no. Im sure you could always retrofit (taking projectors out of cars that come with them and customizing them into your stock headlights) (also PITA sometimes)
