Default Projector headlights

Well, it says these fit a Grand Prix...However, I have an Oldsmobile Intrigue.

I know that they're both W-body, but do they share the same headlights?

I'm curious, because I'd LOVE to have projectors, but I have no idea if these things would fit.

Hmm. So those ones definitely wouldn't fit my car.

I guess it'd be possible to retrofit a set into my housings, I can't imagine that it would be *that* hard. (famous last words, right?)

Yeah...it'* tough to find any sort of write-ups online about Intrigue'*. Nobody ever mods them. Ever. :P

Do you know roughly how much it would cost for a good set of projectors+ballast+bulbs+etc?

Also, does anyone know if 3057=3157 size bulbs? Sylvania says my brake/tail lights are 3057, but every replacement LED bulb I can find, they ALL say 3157. Some even say "3157/3156, AKA 3067/3056"

I'm guessing that they're the same thing?
