I'll tell you what everyone else is going to tell you. There's a "search" function, use it.

Get a projector kit from The Retrofit Source and retrofit them into your stock housings.

I did use the search function and didnt find anything similar to what I was looking for, and didnt find any reviews on equipment I was looking at. So im sorry for using a forum the way it was designed

As others said a projector retro fit is the best upgrade for output and not blinding other drivers.

It's a simple process of removing the headlight lens installing and aiming an hid projector the re sealing the headlight.

i wanted to replace my housings. the lenses cut back a lot of light, cause of all the angles inside and the fact that they are old, i was trying to find a drop in kit that would replace the whole assembly.

If you get a guy like Mike to make you a set, they'll be drop in

Whatever you do, don't get the "projector" sets on eBay. You'll regret every dollar of it.
