Well here are the HID lows pics! Install and all, my dad and I knocked em out so for any 2nd gen'ers your install should be similar even though I have aftermarket projectors. The bulbs you will want should be H1 which is what I used but make sure to double check before you order. These are 35w 6000k's and for anyone on the edge of getting a kit (mines from DDM) I saw do it because I think it has been one of the easiest mods Iv done thus far and it makes a huge difference. Install took 45 minutes or less and about 30 of it was getting the headlights in and out! enjoy the pictures guys

So this is the back of the headlight with the dusk cover off and I'm about to remove the stock bulb as well as unplug the low beam spades

headlight housings with low beam bulb out

Bulb Comparison

Metal bulb housing had to be grinded out just slightly for the bulb to fit, minor clearance issues

after opening up w/ dremel

HID bulb installed with grommet in dusk cover already w/ male spades to go into the headlight female spades

Ballast Mounts
