    May not be legal in many states... even if legal at home, you risk a ticket, or at least being hassled by the cops out of state.
    Don't cheap out... do a full projector conversion, and avoid the shit eBay projectors.
    Go with a good kit like these: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=227
    Black is popular for the emblems.
    Peel them off with fishing line, Plasti-Dip, and reinstall with new 3M body mounting tape.
    Black headlight mod is common... if you install the HID retrofit that's a perfect opportunity.

    If the body is black, then just debadge it.
    If you want accent coloring, light green and red are common on black.
