05-07 hid
 
Just curious anyone running hid on the stock housing? What does your cutoff look like?

If you mean a retrofit in a stock housing, then most look as good as any projector cutoff from a new car with HIDs from the factory does.

Cutoff from a HID sans proper projector, well thats non existent [;)] There are a few proper retrofit threads on here, search them out. Their results look great..

Looks good! Did you have to aim them low?

I think I did aim them a tad bit lower but I can't remember. There's now 6000k in the fogs instead yellow.

Do you get flashed a lot? Trying to decide in going this route until I can afford retrofit or just going with nokya arctic white stage I

Not going projector and keeping hid's in the stock focus reflector housing is going to scatter most of your light, not sure you will get much of a benefit. Check out theretrofitsource.com their Morimoto mini's are a good bargain. My vote would be to do it right the first time and not have to worry about going back and fixing it later. Just save some money up and end up with some great output

Thanks thought it would be more money! Would this work if I already have an hid kit? http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...oducts_id=3181
