So I've been meaning to do this for a long time...I've had HIDs in the car (98 Lude) for about 2 years--had to replace the bulbs this week because one burnt out--wow these things are cheap now, I got 2 for $30. Anyway...the stock halogen housing with xenon bulbs sucks...light obviously sprays all over the place, no discernible cut-off.
Has anyone here tried the ebay projectors? Have you used them with HIDs? how is the cutoff? How do they compare to the stock VWs Audis BMWs Mercedes etc etc that come factory with them?
Is it worth it to get them for $200 or just spend the money retrofitting some D2-S units and projectors into the stock housing? The retrofit is something I really don't want to delve into myself...too many things could possibly go wrong, and those stock headlights are expensive...mine are less than a year old...

Thanks in advance for any input, I tried asking this before but got no results...maybe the headlights were still too new at that point.

i hate my ebay projectors, i had no choice but to get new headlights since the last owner of the car somehow broke the clips. i would've bought depo's but since i needed an hid kit..and this car didn't have one 250 inc/ hid aint bad.

well heres how the category goes,

stocks < ebay projectors < retros

definitely have a retrofit done. If you need some help, I've been doing retrofits for about 4 years now and can help out. If you'd like to see some of my work, you can check out my myspace page at myspace.com/bceretrofits

I've heard you are the one to ask for this. I've decided to sell the car...to one of my good friends. Eventually I would like to see him get this done, and I will refer him to you. Actually, I'm going to make him sign up for this site.
