HID Conversion for Halo Headlights?

I know that it is possible to convert halo headlights to HID, but I'm clueless as to how to do it. I know it takes a HID kit but I don't have any idea as to what kind of kit I need. Help please!

I think you may be referring to a retrofit. It is the best thing to do. I don't know how though. I know a few people on here have done it. I'm sure they'll chime in here to help you out.

I have a kit that I got from HIDwerks but now that he's no longer a vender I don't know where you'd get it besides a general HID kit.

Can anybody tell me if these headlights are compatible with a HID kit and if so what size of bulbs I need to be buying?

do you mean the projector bulb to HID (instead of halogen) or changing out your Halos for brighter ones?
