Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

do your headlamps look like mine?(minus the black paint obviously) If so...you have HID's already. If so...yuo will need bulbs only to update. The part # is D1S. One of our vendors sells the d1s bulbs in various color temps

Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

Hi,

show us a pic of the headlight and we can tell you if you have the factory projectors which use HID bulbs and ballasts OR if you have halogen lamps.

lets start there.


that link WILL NOT FIT AN 08. 2005-2007, then 2008-2010 each have DIFFERENT HEadlights. look at the bottom of the headlight where it meets the bumper.
that link is straight. yours is curved. common issue. besides IMO those lights are UGLY. just my opinion though.

Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

you have halogen, you will need to buy the 9006 HID kit from someone, vendors sell them in the forum here too!

Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

Everyone here is going to tell you that those headlights are ugly, I have them on my 2006 WK and I love them.

They put out light very well and I put 2 rocker switches in so that I control all the halos and all of the little eyebrow lights on each switch.

I have 5000k's and I love them, it looks like daytime when it is night, but I also have mine angled downward so that I do not blind other drivers and I see fine.

Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

please dont buy the halo/projector ebay lights. they look like crap and belong on a 90s civic. you can get hids from either of the vendors on this site or upgrade to OEM hids

Re: I got a question about HID and HALO headlights

I understand but I was giving him my opinion on them. And I was also giving him my opinion on the HID Temperature.

Sorry, next time I wont be helpful.
