    I agree. I want some too.

    I'm pretty sure you have to make them. From what I understand, it takes a while and is pretty expensive.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    There might be someone on the forum that makes them.

    That looks like a retrofit. You will have to build them yourself.

    like the others say, its a retrofit, its expensive, but its worth it. Putting HID headlights in your car without retrofitting makes the light disperse and theres no cutoff. You will blind everyone on the road. Anyway, heres a link and there are plenty more. Just search retrofit and you will find a bunch of how-to's and maybe even find someone that will do the service in your area.

    Good luck!

    Shoot yosh2000 a pm. He did all the work on my retro lights. It's expensive but the quality is top notch. If i were to do all my mods over again this would be the first mod I do.

    Get the kit from http://www.theretrofitsource.com and do it yourself. I got mine for $300 and finished it in a couple of days. The main reason it takes time is because you have to wait for the epoxy to dry when you attach the shroud to the projector. Also, most people do the black housing mod at the same time so you have to wait for paint to cure.
