Default WTD: Pair of HID headlights

So I am tired of my crappy regular headlights and want to get HIDs.
I was looking at a HID kit, which will definately be cheaper but was thinking about just switching the entire assembly out.
So Im looking for both headlights, must be HID and in GOOD, WORKING condition.


Thanks

, if you're willing to spend that much might as well put it towards retro fitting your headlight.

Nirav you should just buy a xenon kit instead of the AFS Headlights...

They are a pain in the rear! Especially whent he ballast's go bad..

Retrofit, because OE 2IS projectors are on the lower end of the good projector scale.

Just buy parts, and then do it, or have it done! You won't regret it meng!

you should retrofit. The output of our 2is projectors (both HID and non-HID) are bad because of the physical design of the projector itself. its not wide, bright, or sharp compared to other projectors.

Tchan1, ELL Y and I have done retrofits for our headlights. they are much better than the stock hid protectors in terms of width, intensity, color, and sharpness. And if done right, the retrofit will produce a blue flicker down the road. I currently run the rx330 projector with custom shields and e30 clear lenses. i am going to redo my retro with rl projectors with tsx clear lense this winter.

I got a set of used Xenondepot philips slim ballast kit (H11) for your ISx50. This is one of the best aftermarket HID kit that your can get on the market, you can ask anyone about the quality of this HID kit.

PM's me if your interested.
