    aftermarket drls will require hids, and my opinion is go oem hids are ***** compared to it, though its not cheap but worth it

    OEM is origional yes, the housings are completely different it would be a real set of bixenons that i will be selling complete with the ballasts and the bulbs

    they do require work to get them to work with the car, ie leveling sensors at least and wiring + coding (you can buy a loom foe the wiring) it will just be a case of whoever comes up with the money for them, but ive still to take one off the car
