I've never seen hid in a halogen housing that looked any good. Really need projectors to get the most out of them.

I doubt they are.....but that can be easily solved.

Re: HID Conversion (OEM Housings)

Not sure on the plug and play...it's very possible though, or maybe a minor wiring harness would need to be fabbed up. Limited funds as of right now are delaying my purchase, but once I get them in hand, i'll try to document and write up a DIY

Maybe not even that. I just use an hid relay harness that I wired into the power and ground of the headlights ballast.
