the hid’s are plug and play. if you do go that route i’d suggest to get some quality lenses. those clear lenses don’t give a pattern beam and you have to point them down so you don’t blind other drivers. plus they fill with water in a storm and the chrome plating will pit and peel in a few months. the lenses were the most expensive part of my upgrade after i realised the junk lenses are a waste of money. i used hella conversion lenses which were about $65 each. i the bi-xenon for the hi/lo and single xenon for the hi beams and i use the 6000 bulbs.

i bought my hid convertion off ebay i have a couple of pics in my pic gallery of what it looks like with a regular bulb and an hid bulb they are bright i bought the headlights,hid 6000k kit,wire adapters and relay kit the only mod i had to do is cut a bigger hole in the headlights bezel to fit the lens in but other then that its awesome and i adjusted the headlights to the height they need to be i’m not worrying about who is going blind if that was the case i would not have bought them but i didn’t think they would be as bright as they are lol.

85montanezss reminded me of something, with the lowered priced conversion lites i also had to open the back of the lite bucket but the hella’s fit without any modification to the lite bucket required

those lenses for $25 are not even worth the price. the silver coating doesn’t last, the lenses are not sealed correctly and may fill up with water if driving in a rain storm. plus those lites do not fit in the bucket properly and besides having to trim the headlite bucket you have to shim the corners of the lite or they rattle around in the bucket. the hella lens fit snugly in the bucket which you do not have to trim. i have used those cheap lenses and they are, with all due respect, chinese junk..

the hella lenses are well made and give you a pattern that lets you see further down the road without blinding other drivers. also i have heard that the police in this area have ticketed cars with those aftemarket lenses cause of the lack of beam they throw unlike the hella lites
