Oh man! It is a true night and day difference. Talk about lighting up the road. Great quality, looks great. Turn signals are in the headlights along with the running lights.

I would have no problem having to buy machs again. Well worth the money!

You can pick up MACHS on ebay aftermarket or try finding used.

If you got the stock HIDs, Check out theretrofitsource.com and get some clear lens and swap those in. Pretty easy to do as the projector comes out from the back. This will increase your light output as well as get you a VERY nice cut off. The hella E55 is the standard projector in those.
