If given, Id rock the headlights. I dont really like the output of the projectors but its definitely better than OEM output. Having mixed feelings on the CCFL or LED line. I do like however how they black housing and the lights are setup. Overall, I say it is worth the upgrade. Good job!

I agree about the output but remember that they're not HIDs, yet

Really do like those headlights, I think I'm going to put them in the 13 si in about a year.

Those look really good! How much were they again? They use stock bulb size right?
I got a deal with pro civic so I don't want to say, but they're listed for 380 on their website. They come with H1 bulbs for hi and low beam

ethlar i know you know a ton about lighting, so i wanted to ask you, what would i need to turn my lights into HIDs now that they're halogen bulbs?

you would want to get a plug n play hid kit with h1 bulbs for the low beams and a relay harness for a 9006 setup so it plugs into your car's electrical system

unless you wanted to swap the halogen projectors for HID ones, that would be a far more involved process

Pretend you were explaining it to a 3-year-old lol
And I thought I already had H1 bulbs?

You have halogen h1 bulbs now, HIDs use bulbs that have a arc chamber instead of the filament found in halogen bulbs. The ballasts regulate the spark in the arc chamber to make even flicker free light. To initiate that spark the ballast has to draw a large amount of power which can cause fuses to pop and wiring to catch fire if you try to run it on some car's stock wiring, you can avoid this by using a relay harness that lets the ballast pull power straight from the battery but still be controlled through the stock wiring.
