Update:

So, if I've got this correct, this is all that's necessary:

Left Machalike
Right Machalike
Morimoto Kit

I'm not sure if you could use that HID kit. The ballasts specific to the MACH's bolt right to the bottom of the housing. You might be able to use that kit with some modifications to the housing but I am not sure. Otherwise, yes, those are the correct housings to purchase.

Bulbs come with the Morimoto kit. Free shipping on the housings. Assuming the shipping is something silly like $20 for the MM kit, that's still $450...for a NEW setup.

I am just not willing to spend $500 for ten year old parts, when I can get (near as makes no difference) the same level of quality brand new for an equal or lesser amount.

Thats very understandable. That's why I am gonna buy the MACH alikes and use the OEM ballasts/bulbs. Kinda half and half for me. Lol. : )

It doesn't look like the listing specifies bulb size either.
IIRC, the Depo housings use the same projectors as the OEM Machs. Wouldn't they use the same bulbs? It may not be the D2S system I'm after. Maybe it's one of the H series? H11 rings a bell for some reason. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...oducts_id=3955

Does this sound right?
