Led bulbs

Ok so after searching the internet all afternoon I need some help. My headlights suck and I want to replace them with Hid's or led's . I have projectors so I'm wondering if anyone has used Led's bulbs as an alternative because I don't know if Hid's will work in the crappy aftermarket sve housing and late model restoration knows as much about cars as my grandmother so they're no help with the headlights .

For starters, loom at product description. Does it say these projectors are HID compatible? I know raxiom projectors specially say they're not designed to run HIDs.

Secondly, be a guinea pig and try out a set of good quality HIDs from retrofit source. Or aftermarket bulbs (osram night breaker, silverstar 2.0, Philips vision plus and such) if you wanna play safe.

If money is not an issue, get stock hid headlight take offs from 2011-12s. They're not as expensive as 13-14s

Aren't the 13-14 projector headlights hid from the factory?

I personally don't like the 11-12 more than the 13-14. It's all a matter of opinion.
