Yes it has been done MANY times.

I have 6000k which in my opinion for aftermarket bulbs are going to be your best bet.

I did mine in a acura retro fit. Here are pics.





And the cut of before i adjusted it.

MLB- I'll link you to the ebay site i got my HID's from. I am going to try and take new pics tonight. If not this weekend.

The projectors are just that. Those are my stock headlights with a set of Acura TSX projectors i put into them.

I will link you guys though i never suggest putting an HID kit into a stock reflector housing. With this said....

This one is about 90 bucks....HOWEVER it is a slime HID kit. Meaning the ballast is TINY.

I love this style

I wonder how these would work in the aftermarket projectors. Is it just the ballast thats slim or is it a slim line bulb as well?

It's just a slim line ballast at the bulb would always need to retain it's same physical shape no matter what.
