RE: HID LIGHTS!!!
They should be plug and play, just make sure you secure the ballasts somewhere so they don’t rattle around while driving. Kensun from Amazon has a lot of good reviews, and their customer service is outstanding.

RE: HID LIGHTS!!!
The housings on your car are not designed for HID, putting them in scatters the light, bad idea.

I have seen a ciuple with them aside from being bright as hell the beam is everywhere and seems un- aimed. I almost put some in my 2002. (ya right lolz too expensive) but added led fog lights instead.

I too, almost pulled the trigger on a set of HIDs, until I read and saw how uneven and scattered the light pattern is from the headlight housing. I’ll stick with my Phillips Crystal Vision Ultra’s and my 1200 lumen LED spotlight. Cool

RE: HID LIGHTS!!!
Do yourself a favor ( and the rest of us ) if you really are set on getting HID or LED headlight do a projector housing retrofit, either of those in the factory headlights/reflectors is asking for trouble,
