    Did you take your lights out? Is it necessary? I would be worried to get the bulb in without touching it.

    Lights as in headlights? Those won't come off unless you remove the bumper. Unless you want to install the ballasts in a good area, you can get away with just taking the battery out; it's a tight squeeze on that side.

    I went with 6k HIDs. We installed these by removing the bumper and headlights so we could do a DIY video and do a clean install by hiding the ballast.

    The DRL run off your high beams on the civic. The drl is just your high beam light at a lesser power. You'll only run into problems if you try to run HIDs in your high beams

    Hey Jennay that was a GREAT video! I've viewed that video at least 6 times. Great info provided on installing HID n our car. I was hoping to use this guide to help install my own.

    How are the lights holding up? How do you like the lighting output? Do you have a link to pics of your lighting/car. It also looked like you had all oem options installed.

    Great car and hope to see more pics of your car

    The way the bulbs and ballast came, they look like a standard ebay kit you'll find for around 20-30 dollars.
