Default HID + Projector Headlights?

I want to buy an HID kit for better lighting, however my stock headlights are scratched up and it's not so clear (meaning it's faded, etc...). I don't want to buy another stock replacement and everytime I do a google search on Civic headlights, I always find projector headlights.

Can anyone give any feedback how good it will be to mix HID with dual projector headlights? I'm currently looking at the bi-HID kits so I can have both highbeam and lowbeam.

No PNP hid will never come close to a retro fit hid.

Any car that didn't came out of the dealership with hids is basically illegal. All civic projector headlight is still a halogen style projector meaning it isn't made to run and control hids. Massive glare and hot spot is all I see unless you do it right and retro fit some tsx, s2000, e46, fx35, etc. projector into it or something.

however illegal it really might be, for future reference don't use wikipedia or wiki answers and expect them to be right, theyre not credible or peer reviewed. anyone can put anything they want on their because it is user based.


sorry for the jack.
