What do you guys recommend for headlights, retrofitting a projector into stock headlights, or buying ebay k2 motor projectors that are more the look I want? Any experience with ebay lights would be awesome for knowledge on difficulty and such for wiring

Most ebay lights will have poor light output and poor light dispersion. That's why they are so cheap. Using a quality projector kit from TRS to retrofit will give you amazing light out put that you will NEVER get with an ebay kit.

Hella Dynabeams.

But I have the Depo Mach HID's in my car. For a cheap alternative I actually am really pleased with them. It took me a little playing to get them adjusted properly, but now that they are the output is very good.
I don't like how flashy they are but they work well.

depends on a few things; such as the kit and whats included in it. the hardest part is probably opening the headlight up to install everything properly and then sealing it back up when you are done.

most of the good hid kits are plug and play (once you have the headlights opened) and come with everything you need, you just have to get everything installed and aligned properly. Search around on here, there are several how-to's
