    i have been tempted as well. have a few friends with some new h.i.d kits and i am liking the bright light at night. might be a mod i would attempt in the future. maybe even on the stockers to see how well i can install one.

    yea id test it on my stock lights first too.

    did your budys retrofit it or just toss in the new bulbs/ballasts in their stock housing like the mustang kits?

    I like this way also because then you can install a quality projector lense and not the cheap ones that come in the projector headlight kits. A guy on Stangnet did this and got the parts from a crashed up Audi...he used the lenses and fit them on his stock housings...he didn't take pics though. San-Man on stangnet is also doing something like this on his new edge.

    im going to do this when I get home, first practice on my old headlights then dive into my smoked. I also dislike the look of the projector headlights, plus a good point with them is you couldnt AIM the hid...thats the main problem, aming the HID properly is key and hard to do.

    no retrofit. just plug and play. one buddy has it installed in his civic with no projecters and just in the stock headlight housing and they look pretty good. the light is scattered though since there is no projecter to aim and project the light. but all in all it looks killer. once i find a post or something in that nature of how to install one i will buy a kit and try to attempt it. it doesn't look to complicated at all.

    can't wait to blind on comers lol

    they do have mustang specific plug and play ones, mustang tuning sells them and now has hi/low beam versions.
