HID / Projecter !
So Im curious. I see alot of people talking about HID's and Projectors, and Hid Projectors, and all sorts of stuff. I wanted to upgrade to HID's in my 07 and was just goning to buy the digital kit through Xeon Depot. But Im all confused now lol. Can someone please explain the diffrence between projectors and Hid's. Maybe include some pictures. Thanks ahead of time.

Projectors are a housing for HID headlights. In a simple sense, projectors are much better because they are retrofitted for the lense, sending out a nice straight non distorted beam of light.

If you put HIDs into a normal housing, you will get glare. Hids are just a bulb.

Thats the simple way of explaining it lol

Ok, I get it, so if I want hids I can get them but I should also get projectors retrofitted in. I can get those lights from flashtech already done right.

Re: HID / Projecter !
Is there a part number or when can I find those

Re: HID / Projecter !
the OEM will fit fine with your 2007, but there will be a gap between the headlights and your bumper, unless you upgrade to a 2008+ bumper..
