nothing.. hook them up.. usually they are plug and play.. they look hella better in projector lights though if you can find em.. HID lights are just really bright..

they aren't worth it IMO.. and in regular headlights i think they look dumb as ****.. the whole lens turns blue.. I have silver star bright white and they look good.. fog lights would be the only thing i would add

its all a fashion... depends what kind of car and taste you have... i got a civic... and the "jdm" thing is yellow fogs... just a trend.

i'm also thinking about getting HID plug and plays... 4300k or 6k... ($130ish)

FYI......fog lights should be yellow as it increases visibilty since they don't reflect like a white light...

XenTec bi-xenon for $119. Was using Silverstars, but another one burnt out, so I figured I'd give these a try. And I'm getting older, so my vision ***** at night :laugh:

I was gonna go with some HID's for my dakota. My fogs are already bright as ****. But I've been reading about too many problems with the plug and play HID's. Some are going out early. And if you have voltage drop from your system it will affect the HID's. I just put the Silverstar ultras in and they are great. A real world of difference.

HIDs look best when paired with projectors...

I wanted to upgrade my lights to HID but I have the plain old "textured" headlight lens so it would basically just throw light everywhere and blind anyone in my path...

So I'm thinking about retrofitting some projectors, might be a fun project for you to try. You would need your stock headlight assemblies, projector lenses, shrouds, (bulbs/ballasts aka the HID "kit"), and basic hand tools and glues and you could make something really sharp looking.

you can still use hids with reflector housings retrofit solutions are made to be used with refective lens

You ever go through with the retro?
