Ive been looking at the same exact lights. When you buy them do they come with any bulbs or is there an extra charge to get the bulbs

Alright, lights are installed. Here are some pics of the lights being installed. This guide was very useful during the entire process. The hardest part was the aligning the metal clips on the bottom of the lights.

I have since put in some 6000k HID's into these lights -- these pics are taken with the halogen bulbs that come with the kit.

Mine were 289US plus shipping to Canada, which was pretty pricey.

Couple of questions to the guys who have installed theese lights.

1. How are they holding up? Buying things like this off of eBay make me nervous.

2. Do the projector lamps come with the needed bulbs?

3. Using the standard bulbs, do you still have high-beams?

4. To those who have opted for HID's, do you lose the high-beams?

5. What size bulbs are the stock headlight bulbs, and what size do the projectors take?

6. While I'm at it, what size HID bulbs/regular bulbs do the fog lights take?

Thanks!

Don't have HIDs, yet.

I just got mine the other day, and I'm working on a relay harness for the HIDs to keep the high beam. There's several ways to do it. I'm bypassing the headlight circuitry in the car, and tapping straight into the headlight switch for on/off.
