headlight suggestions for my 06

ok so i would like to hear from those who have gotten aftermarket headlights , i made the mistake of putting hids in stock housings and am now paying for it , they are all different colors and dont light up anything at night . a definate downgrade from stock , so i would like suggestions from those who have gotten aftermarket lights , i dont wanna just buy the first set i find and end up with more junk. so what do you have ? where did you get them ? are you satisfied with them?

if i can not find a suitable aftermarket light set then i will just be ordering the oem style black housings and putting halogens.

also , if your suggestion is to go stock then what bulbs to you suggest ?
thank you for your input

You could do a projector retrofit in the stock housing.

Yes iv been looking into that , but im unsure of what to buy to ensure the best fit / output. I figure ill try it out and if I get it wrong ill just re-sell the parts and grab the oem style blacked out housings

There was a thread a few months ago of someone who did a retro on his FoFo same generation as your's. I'll see if I can find it. you can look at his thread and maybe PM him for some questions you may have.

Here's the link to the retrofit: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...t=hid+retrofit

He also did a "demon eyes" mod which makes the projector look red when the lights are off by painting the cutoff shield inside red. Looks pretty badass to me.
