Arg you bastards make it hard not to do a retrofit. It will have to wait a bit until I go through my current headlights but after they dump out I am going to do this for sure. Slammed, I believe you have the morimoto's, do those come with HID's when you buy them? If not going to go for the 6k DDM tuning HID's with slim ballasts. Also you mentioned to get a colored look on the light themselves (when the lights are off) the shields have to be painted.... any advice on how to do this/what paint to use? I would imagine it would have to be a high temp paint as I think the shields get pretty warm but I may be wrong.

For the demon eyes look(red when lights off) you need to get colored aluminum and fit it right under the cut off shield. It'll appear clear when look dead on but will show color when looked at a downward angle. YouTube has many vids of this
