I think I would rather do the eagle eyes but I dont want it to peel. I dont want to have to retrofit my own projectors. I would umm lets just say mess up! Yes, I am worried about a ticket. One I dont want a ticket and two I want it to be close to stock so I can sell it and if I can I am going to keep the stock parts so I can revert it back.

OEM is 4300k. Stay with 4300k or 5000k There are a few threads on projector retrofits.

If your going to run HIDs you need to run projectors. At least some ebay projectors but a retrofit is the best.

HIDs in stock halogen based headlights GLARE doesn't matter if you "aimed them down".

I got pulled over a few months ago just so the cop could ask me where I got my hids, how I liked them, so he could get a set for his daughter and her focus
