    Ok so ya I get done from my run and disarm my alarm and I notice my parking lights for my passenger side headlight is out (my halo rings) So I guess this means I should get some new ones huh? well I havn't decided what kind I want I mean I like the ones I have now. But I dunno if I should get HID's and what kind I should get? Do I need stock headlights for HID's? Thanks for all your input!

    if it were a coupe or hatch I'd say to get TYC one-piece projectors, but you have a sedan so you're out of luck.

    I wouldn't waste my time with the cheapo ones. If I were buying aftermarket headlights, they would be TYC or nothing.

    Get the TYC headlights- TYC does make one that's just a headlight unit replacement (no corner, no one piece) so you can fit it on the sedan. The beam pattern is still really good, and you can drop in some Audi/BMW bi-xenon HID projectors later when you have the money. This is the route I was going to follow with my EG8.

    ya my friend was saying that he used projectors and BMW lights and mixed the two to make a HID headlight kit...but he was gonna charge me 500 bucks including labor..he is charging me 100 for labor cuase it takes like 32 hours lol...I dunno its not just one wire...it plugs into my factory harness and I dunno what wire it is...and yes its JUST my parking lights...halo's and cornors go on when parking lights are on.

    32 hours?! It shouldn't take anywhere near that long. I wasn't talking about just replacing the low beams on the projectors- I was talking about getting just the TYC headlight replacement:

    Get those, then mount an entire bi-xenon projector (high AND low beam) from an Audi or BMW into the housing.

    Those are all over eBay, and typically run about $100-120 shipped. The stock wiring is the same as the stock headlight- it takes an H4 bulb. If wiring confuses you, don't attempt to add HIDs on your own.

    I would deffinatly go for an HID setup. I went that route and once you get HIDs you wont ever go back to halogens. You're probably better off to let your friend do the retrofit if hes done them before. If you want to learn to do them yourself then check out http://www.hidplanet.com/forums.
