Those are my old lights!

Very few(if any at all) aftermarket headlights are HID out of the box. Most aftermarket projector lights won't work for HID's. They tend to melt the projectors. Mine had a big red sticker on the top the said "warning: do not put HID lamps in this housing"

If you want HID's, your best bet is to either do a morimoto retrofit on your stock housings, which not only will give great light output, but they look really cool. Or buy Hellas!
