I bought my headlights off eBay and they had HID built in so I wouldn't have to convert my original set. They have been in car for over a year and still work great.

Never mind my original post, in the world of HIDs, AC is the way to go apparently.

Shop Car LED Lights, LED Bulbs, Headlights, Tail Lights, Fog Lamps
HID's vary, cheaper bulbs are hit or miss with matching color and life expectancy.

Never put an HID in a stock halogen housing. Do it right and get a retrofit or projector set up.

I had HID on my head and fogs for a year already without problems. I just recently switched my heads to LED's and the are 10 times better than HID's!
