but do you have a projector, ballast, etc. Because if its just a bulb that you plug in stock housing its not a True HID

speedracer ZX3 The hella hids are great. Machs are hella basically too. Machs were avaible in SVTF and in the Mach Audio Sedan. Search ebay, craigslist, here for some. I got mine off here from a guy parting is SVTF. When you buy already HID projector housing headlights of ebay they're usally not the greatest and burn bulbs really easily and do it alot. Many people retrofit them which just means putting new,good quality parts into a so so housing. Sometimes its cheaper, but its more work to do. You can also retrofit your stock housings that you have now. Which will look more OEM+ more one of a kind and will probably run a little cheaper since you already have the housings.

rambleon84 Hella would probably be one of the easier to source head lights for you car. I'd go with them myself if they made them for the '05+ models.

The Retrofit Source for sourcing parts to convert your current headlights into HID
HID Planet for the how-to's and people that know what they are doing with retrofitting.

Renrut Sorry about all the questions but where do you get the machs?
03-01-2012 09:33 AM
Renrut I would order them and get a professional to do the work. What is the brand you recommend for the headlight unit?
