If your going to run HIDs you need to run projectors. At least some ebay projectors but a retrofit is the best.

HIDs in stock halogen based headlights GLARE doesn't matter if you "aimed them down".
I like the OEM, brightest white with no blue or yellow tint. I want the same for fog and headlights.
I was thinking if I did HID, I would do it in the eBay projectors. Black or chrome housing on my red focus? Glare on stock from HID=always and I dont want that.

True about alot of people having them but did they really put HID's in stock halogen housings?
