So I have decided that im going to start on my own to retrofit my stock headlights, just due to the fact I dont want to have 3 sets of headlights lol the only problem with my stock headlights are there peeling but shouldnt be a problem il wet sand em and buff it out by hand and clear coat em but other then that id like to know what all I need to retrofit my lights and that includes me wanting ccfls and 8000k hids also and were could I get all of these items.

Thanks

And some tips and tricks would be nice please.

Or do you think I should just buy the whole thing for 675 from hidwerks.com?

The Retrofit Source is a good place to start. They now have LED halos that are very bright. Way brighter than CCFLs. Also, stick with 4,300k. 8,000k will be such a waste on a retrofit. Besides, you already get color at the cutoff from the projectors.

haha aw well thats not cool! i like my headlights but i want some black ones to match the red and black theme of the car. plus i want those angled stripes whatever they are called. also looking into some awesome seat covers that arent those lose baggy things that rip when you sit in them! i found some for about $370 front and back nerosupreme, looks like the best bet.

but yea if i get his or find some locally, i will sell mine. and i will keep u in mind. probably wont ask much for them either. i paid about $150-ish for them on ebay

I want some black ones too... but like i said i will be doing a retrofit probably over the spring or summer next year so sealed chrome headlights will be fine for now....
i got some coverking custom fit seat covers for $100 per row.. got them in less than a week of ordering them too:bigsmile:

anywho.... i think we hijacked this thread enough...
