never said it would be legal or the right thing to do...just threw out there that people do have them...and it is true that the reflection pattern is very different in different types of cars for different bulbs, in the cases I have seen it has still been an improvement over stock...it would almost just be easier to get HID driving lights becuase the work to convert the headlights with projectors would take much more work.

00+ HL are COMPLETELY different from yours or mine. they actually look REALLY simple to retrofit. I bet if I tried I could do both in a weekend, all said and done, ready to be put back on a car. And I work slow, so that should say something.
