package arrived at 5:00PM yesterday, and by 5:55 it was all installed, ready to go.

Looks beautiful... put a pair of sylvania silverstars in there and lighting has improved a lot

looks decent too.

physical difference is that its all flush, not recessed (looks nicer)

it uses H4 bulbs

reflective housing is better, lens is new, car looks newer by a few years

lighting makes a big difference @ night

kit was $215 usd, incl. the clear corners & headlights, got lucky, normally they are anywhere from $250-$280 on ebay

Typically, HID's are low beam only. There are some kits out there that will move the bulbs, but I would recomend that you avoid those kits.

You can use the fogs as your high beams. They are bright enough, and you can even retro those for HID use.

Regarding your car...

Are these DEPO or TYC brand? You upgrade your grill also?
