    you have shitty projectors. there were no oem jdm projectors. you can do a retro-fit with audi units.

    the light is more evenly distributed with projectors. with reflector based HID's, there's more glare giving you the impression from the outside that they're brighter. HID projectors are the way to go IMO. find yourself a used set of audi or bmw projectors and makes yourself a retrofit.

    hid's in projectors designed for hid's or not at all

    retrofits are the ONLY way to go

    Retrofitting is the only way to do hid. If not do not them at all. Because normally they will come out really bad. They will Glare and shine everywhere like ppl on the sidewalks and oncoming traffic then when u pass by that cop they will pull you over and give you a fix it ticket.
