Opinion on headlights

So I've been looking around for some new headlights for my 97 SH and was just wanting some opinions...i found some Angle eye or Halo headlights off of ebay for about 160ish but i also have found a HID kit for 120..i'm not sure which i think looks cooler i know the HID's come from a reliable source because my friend has ordered them before but i wasn't sure about the headlights because i've heard they leak...any help would be nice

Re: Opinion on headlights

if you put HIDs in your stock headlights, I and many others will END you.

the amount of bleeding from HIDs without projectors is blinding.

If you get headlights, get DEPO projectors, then later get hids.

Re: Opinion on headlights

if you plan on getting HIDs, do it right the first time and have a retrofit done

x2 listen to this guy. i've prolly wasted $400 between different regular bulbs and HID kits, when i simply coulda saved another $1-200 and had a retro done, and woulda been much, much happier not only on saving alotta money, but the final outcome woulda been DRASTICALLY better by doing it right the first time!
