    Yup. The Civic is getting HIDs once it gets out of the shop, in some housings that don't have the flutes in the front glass so I get even more light out of the package... maybe like these:

    I've seen HIDs in an EG, and the amount of light on the road compared to stock is just mind blowing. Make sure you get a good kit with the full moving bulb for low/high beam (not moving shield) and a good shield system so you don't throw glare at other drivers.

    unfortunatly for me no one makes the headlighs without the flutes for the del sol (bastards left us out AGAIN)
    but im figuring between the headlights and the AUX lights i should have a rediculous amount of light up there :)

    who do you recomend for kits .... ive only seen a few in the 4300K area that im looking to be in (want the incredibly bright white not the blue or purple)....been looking at the CATZ kit

    i still wish i could just go with the yellows that i had on my bike :(

    **edit**
    these are the yellows i had on my bike
    [​IMG]
    actually had a yellow casing around the bulb not just yellow paint over the glass
    they were bright as hell and didnt fade at all

    I had in my Civic Denji projectors, Hella 5200K HIDs in the low beams, 100W H1 bulbs in the high beams, and Hella 500 driving lights with 100W H3 bulbs.

    All the Civic projectors I've seen SUCK with 55W H3 bulbs 'till you throw some HIDs in them. Once that's done, the low beam is as good as any BMW or Audi. The problem with the H3 bulb is that the filament is perpendicular to the bulbs length as opposed to the H1 bulb where it's parallel. You could do an H1 conversion in the low beam projector, but I just decided to go HID. You can't run 100W bulbs in the low beam projector because it'll get too hot and burn out. HID is really the only way to go with the projectors. Also, I'm not too current on HID conversions and shit, but on all the HID kits I've seen, you lose your high beams when you convert your stock Civic lights (unless you have a seperate high beam bulb). That is NOT worth the price, and IMPO, makes it a rice mod at that point because it's counterproductive.

    And I don't want to hear any shit about how the Hellas are too big. I don't live in a fucking city, so I *NEED* the light. It's not about "looking like a wanna be rally car," numbnuts.

    I'm going with the Catz kit in my OEM housings. They DO run both the high and low beams. Other kits out there do too, but I trust Catz the most. I was disappointed with my Denji projectors- the beam pattern was nice at first, but the build quality wasn't that great, and a year later they were falling apart.

    Another HID kit manufacturer to check out is http://www.suvlights.com . They make excellent stuff. Don't believe the hype around a "Phillips kit" or an "Osram kit". They don't make kits- they only make parts. Other companies assemble those parts into kits that they sell, possibly with questionable quality parts. Sylvania has a conversion kit out now, but I've never seen one in use so I couldn't tell you how good it is. Sylvania = OEM quality in most cases though.

    deth101- Catz probably is the best, if not one of the best kits out there.
