mondojackal may have said something they shouldn't have...

HID is high intensity discharge lighting
essentially-xenon
this is retrofitted to our cars by installing either an aftermarket xenon kit, such as can be found at www.xenondepot.com, or by finding xenon projectors online, such as ebay, or at a junkyard around where yo ulive if you are that lucky.
it isn't a drop in affair, it takes custom work, which means cutting up what you have, although, if the price is right, and you can do the work, by all means, go for it!
here are some good threads to look at:
TSX projectors into JDM headlights

if you want, install a kit, it is easier, but more expensive than if you look around...
guy who installed a kit he bought

someone looking to buy a kit from xenon depot
hope this helps..

cheap e-bay fix?

Allllright....I am a total newb on this site and I read this whole thread and I just have no idea if there was a solution to the cheap e-bay projector adjustment problem, I dont want to connect the low-beams to my high beams and use those all the time...is there any way that the lens can be tilted upwards without moving the whole light assembly? or do the HID bulbs make a big difference or enough of a difference that the lens doesnt need to be moved up? I am confused and no one really seemed to give a solid explination...if they cant be adjusted and that was stated earlier then I am sorry for wasting time and space.

There are little screws on the back of the headlights. Take a small phillips head screw driver and start turning to see which way it moves. The low and high beams have seperate adjusting screws but just dont remember how many each have. Its pretty easy to do once you find the little screws

you know, im going to be the first to get some jdm projectors and put them on upside down and backwards, so that the beam hits the right spot.
er, maybe not.

I have some Silverstar lights installed for my low beams on my Accord. I'm extremely satisfied with them so far. They are waaayyyy better than the stock lights since they are much brighter. Anyway, take it easy.

I had the halo projectors on my CD5. The halo was neat for awhile, but the overall performance sucked. I will never get projectors again, unless of course I did a retro fit, but I don't plan on it.

so, if i was to go on ebay, purchase these lights, and then go buy a xenon conversion kit, would i be alright? becasue, that is my overall plan, since the JDM ones arent exactly safe. i am not concerned about legality (disclaimer-although i should), but i do actually give a shit about safety. i know how pissed i get at oncoming brights.
i really want to try to do the kind that aww_shiet has on his.

wow no replies to this Anyways you can get the JDM headlights and when you buy a HID buy the h4 adapters and that will reduce the glare for oncoming traffic

Can I buy the ebay cheapos and just hack it and make use of the existing mould so it's easier to put in the real deal projectors?

Light output on the ebay projectors are decent, at least my set puts out equivalent to stock. The center running/parking lights between the low and high beams burned out that came with it, but have been replaced since, the rest of the bulbs are fine. My biggest complaint, would be the crappy non-clipping, cheaply glued connectors. If you want to be trouble free, just replace the connectors from the factory harness, and the ones on the lights, with something better, or just solder the wires together, depends upon how permanant you want it. I plan to retrofit my low and high beams to hid, but I need to confirm what bulbs are currently being used. H3/H4? I'll have to take my bulbs out and check.

i used to have those too and like everyone else mine pointed like straight down, so my output sucked, then one day i tightened the adjust screws on the back to adjust projector height and they liked good, then i blackhoused and yellow high beamed my stock ones and never looked back
