No. A lot of research is required to get a better idea. Read up on the forums at www.hidplanet.com. There are lots of "retrofits" posted that you can look at and get ideas.

Some reading here too..

http://www.intellexual.net/hid.html

Haven't read all of it myself, but after skimming, it'* pretty spot on. Please don't get anything too far above 6000k color temp or higher as well, it'* nothing but "glamour" and hurts performance. Anything past 7 is a joke IMO...


This is a shot from that page on a retrofit. Notice how bright it is up high where it wont hit the road, but other driver'* eyes. Not having proper cut-offs is dangerous as ****, not to mention illegal.


Razor sharp HID cut-off. They look blue from afar due to the cut-off bending light so hard @ the line. Some have more of the "rainbow" effect than others.




Adding projectors to your car will require cutting your headlights, and grafting them in. NOT an easy project, some people might take a spare set of headlights and add them to it for a price i'm sure...

Can anyone send me a link for projectors that fit Bonnies cause I can't seem to find any?
And what price range would these be in?

I'm pretty sure I have a few extra sets sitting around here. PM me to remind me to look through my mountian of lights that I have. No ballasts, bulbs, or ignitors though, just projectors.
