Headlight advice

Im sure there is a post somewhere of something similar to this, but the ones I found were not very helpful.

I want to get some black housed halo headlight for my 5th gen. So far all the ones I have found the price is jumping all over the place. The last ones I got were from spyder auto and they were awful. They would not even be visible at night.

So I do not want to make the same mistake again. I found some on Headlight Depot for 180 bucks. LINK HERE
Then I found some on CarID for around 300 by Spec-D and CG. Should I get name brand or will either or suffice? Im just looking for opinions and experiences.

Re: Headlight advice

well, though this is very common knowledge, youre gonna want to use HIDs with projectors. and if they are halos, they are most likely projectors. im not assuming you dont know this, im just putting it out there just in case. and HIDs in a reflector housing are going to be very disrupting to oncomming traffic. bottom line, your old headlights may be fine, you just would need to use a a buld with a larger kelvin rating and make sure the projector is aimed right.

I dont have my OEM headlights or I would consider doing a retrofit. But I like the way the halo's look, so I figured I would get those.

Re: Headlight advice

Just get some depots and retrofit them or pay someone to do it...

Then run a better bulb from a parts store like streetglow bulbs, or on of those they cost $50 a set
