If they're actual projectors and they're approved by the DOT (Department of Transportation), you'll be fine. If you just throw HID bulbs in the stock reflector housings, you'll be pulled over for blinding everyone on the road.

If you did that, I'd also call you an idiot. But like I said - legit projectors and you'll be fine.
