Sadly, it's an automatic. :/

I mean the housing for the lights, because I looked it up, and some come with the housing for blah blah, or I could just get the bulbs for much cheaper. I was just curious to what came with it so that I would know to buy the whole thing or just the bulbs.

"Halogen" lights are ordinary. There are high wattage ones to put out more light, and they WILL require new headlight wire connectors or you'll melt them. I've also heard of people melting headlight housings with them so I'd probably avoid those.

HIDs require a ballast and maybe some other stuff to work... basically you need a "kit" and can't just plug a HID bulb into a halogen socket.

And don't let anyone get on you about the auto, I've raced against lots of people with more power and manual transmissions and come out ahead. Just don't drag race and you're on a level playing field lol. I kinda envy your new auto though.

Yeah, I wanted a manual, mostly for the experience of driving a manual, but since my parents paid the 4k down payment, they had to have some kind of say in my car. :P

And thanks for the light help, I'll be sure to stay away from H.I.D.'s then, and I'll just find some nice bulbs for my lights.

Does anyone know how much ambient lighting from Ford would cost? I tried looking but i was kinda out of luck. Or of a Houston local place that'll sell/install me some? I really wish I had that option, but it completely slipped my mind in the heat of the battle.

And BTW, call my Billy, Rains, or Billy Rains. Batista is my fofo's name.

thanks, haha.

I was weaving my way through the forums earlier and noticed something that gave me a question.

If I were to get the FRPP kit to drop my focus, is there anything else I'd need?
