Should be posted in the lighting section. Anyway, you have a reflector housing. I would not recommend an HID kit for your car since it will produce a lot of glare that will distract and disturb on coming traffic. It is Illegal as well. But if you must insist, then you'll need to get an HID kit. HIDoutlet(one of RS' sponsor) is a great place to check them out. They have a store in Crystal mall too. Since your low beam is H11, you must get a kit that fits the "H11" housing.

It's best if you retrofit some HID projectors to their housing or at least buy some projector headlights for your car. At the very least, this will reduce glare and give off a more proper beam.

If you didn't understand what he said, I would highly recommend not doing anything yourself...

hid = those really bright blueish lights that newer cars have.

retrofit = putting Projectors from higher end cars into YOUR headlights to make it better no blinding, and no glare.

hid in your stock headlights looks like this

blinding and lots of glare to oncoming traffic


with a good projector in it.


with halogen projectos (notice the the ghosting above the cut-off)

doing a retrofit will set you back a bit 600-1000 depending what projectors you want, and other stuff

go to hidplanet.com to learn more
