HIDs In Stock Headlights?

Can I install HIDs in the stock headlights? I have heard you cant do it with certain lenses and the hids will melt them. Going with 6000k if that means anything.

Yeh you can install them no problem. Dont worry, you wont burn your lenses. Ive had HIDs for over a year and others here have had it on for years.

Ok glad to hear that. Cuz the budget doesnt allow for new headlights right now, but definitely need some better lighting.

They won't hurt anything but the housings are not designed for Hids..don't focus the light correctly so result is light scatter which bothers on coming drivers and will cause problems driving in heavy fog and snow.

You could get much better lights by getting '02-04 housings or equal aftermarket ones, 12ga harness and hella 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs no drawbacks.

I bought some aftermarket newer style 02-04 on ebay from Headlightdepot. They had the best price and I had no problem exchanging a housing that leaked- everything is good now! I got the pair for less than 150 shipped, and it included turn and corner lights.
