HID Conversion Kit - Get Lit

An easy solution to bridge the gap between H.I.D. haves and have-nots

You've seen the intense radiance from the headlights of an S2000 or a BMW, usually as it barrels down the other side of the road or in your rearviews. The brilliant, blue-white hue of the xenon beams catches your eye. It wasn't long ago that high-intensity discharge (H.I.D.) headlights were reserved for cars with hefty price tags. If your car isn't H.I.D.-equipped, don't stress. You'll just have to work a little harder to enjoy them.

To bridge the H.I.D. gap between car enthusiast classes, we found a solution using parts by HIDPlanet.com. Its H.I.D. kit includes a set of bulbs, ballasts, ballast boxes, pigtail plugs and the company's new Lite-Glow projectors. These parts are replacement parts for cars with OEM xenons. The projectors went in a set of headlights from Pro Car Parts, an Internet parts provider.

The lights will be installed in project EG8, Editor Bob's ex-fifth-gen Civic. (A big thanks to the guys at L-Con Engineering for letting us use their shop.) Finally, check your local/state vehicle codes before retrofitting xenon projectors into your headlights. Single xenon projectors like ours don't have separate high and low beams. If high beams are necessary, opt for bi-xenon projectors.
