All factory lights use bulbs with this template regardless of how the light looks when it's bent through a projector. In my state you will fail required state inspection with a retrofit kit. Hope this info helps.
Your state is my state. If only inspection shops bothered to actually do their jobs, me and you would be blinded by far less ricer civics :/
