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 like the OEM, brightest white with no blue or yellow tint. I want the same for fog and headlights.
I was thinking if I did HID, I would do it in the eBay projectors. Black or chrome housing on my red focus? Glare on stock from HID=always and I dont want that.

True about alot of people having them but did they really put HID's in stock halogen housings?

As soon as i got my eagle eyes in the mail i buffed the clear protective coat off of them so i wouldn't have to worry about it(= then i put uv protectant on them and they are good to go(= or i guess you could just put the UV protectant on the protective film haha o well(=

That is not what i was told.... Legally you cannot have hids in non projector "halogen" housing. If you have projectors then are fine because the prokector channels the line in a cutoff and it will not blind oncoming traffic.
