Hid/xeoen Bulbs???
 
do you have to buy new headlights to put them in?

Yes, you need projector style headlights -

They're FK (Made by Depo), and the rings have four bulbs in each, but I'm gonna take them out and put some CCFL rings in.

That would be our Projector46 package which are complete headlight replacements that swap out your reflector based halogens for projector based xenons and built in Predator angel eyes. You can retrofit our ProLumen or Piccolo HID kit into your stock reflector housings but the light output will not quite live up to a projector setup.

what are you guys talking about?? i thought he was talking about hid look bulbs? if so he can put them in regular headlamps. you really should only put real HIDs in a projector headlamp designed for them if that's his real question.

back to the angel eyes, so your FK ones have the factory single bulb per ring or four bulbs per ring? keep those, OEM look is by far the best. the CCFLs are cheap and over rated, "Angel Eyes" were never suppose to match or put out a bunch of light. they were and still are made to only light up the rings not the whole housing.

I believe he means proper HIDs, not the halogen "lookalike" bulbs, which is why I said he would need projectors.
My "tacky" (:tsk:) angel eyes have four bulbs per ring, and are quite yellow. I've been debating whether to replace the bulbs with xenon look ones, such as the ones in the interior light kit, or replace them altogether with the CCFLs.
