you mean if the vehicle was not originally equiped with that style lamp?
if not what about all the vehicles rolling off the factory line with stock HID?

You can have aftermarket HID's in MASS and not get screwed for it. You just can't put the real dark blue or purple colors in, and make sure that they are aimed right.

Aftermarket HID's are all over the place near me. I don't believe that they actually really passed that law banning aftermarket HID's in mass. They were talking about itlast year, but I never heard that it went through. I also asked a few officers that I know, they all said that it never went through in mass.

I am getting a set of HID's for my truck. I just bought a set of real projector light for my truck from K2motor.com I bought the ones pictured below:


I didn't really like them in the pic, But they look really nice in person. I can't wait to install them.

They never passed the law banning HID's in vehicles not originally equipped with them.

I would say that the projectors that you listed would give better light than just the diamond cut light. That projector kinda throws a beam straight out, where as the diamond cut looks like it spreads out the beam. My buddy has those on his 94 ranger. It was am awesome difference with those lights, He originally had the diamond cut ones.

The small projector is more like a city light. You still use your regular bulb in those lights.

The lights that I bought actually have a high and a low beam. The projector is the low beam, and on the lower inside corner is the high beam.

I am going to try and install them this weekend. I will try to get a pic of them working.
