So I'm pretty new to the whole lighting thing, what exactly do I need to get for my 04 (facelift) Steel blue sedan? I currently am running the stock halogen headlamps, and I've been trying to figure out what I need, but its a bit confusing. Any help??? Ps I'm going for a bright blueish/white light color if that matters. HID, xenon, projector, angel eyes :hmm: Thanks in advance

just get an H7 hid kit, a pair of capacitors, and make sure they are 6k

when you get them, let me know for instructions on how to install them
NO.


Do not take his advice.


Get a pair of Morimoto Mini projectors and pop them into your halogen headlights, all plug and play. Read my sticky at the top of the thread and the link is there how to do it.

Yes those are the correct projectors. Get the E46 shrouds and Morimoto ballast with h1 bulbs and you're set.


yea H7 hid conversion kit.
will work just as good as the morimoto kit, without having to spend so much money.
What you're recommending might be cheap but it is not the proper way of modding lights.

Throwing in a hid kit in halogen headlights is illegal, provides an insane amount of glare blinding other drivers and it does not give better light output then projectors.
