Stock headlights?

I bought smoked heads/fogs and taillights earlier this week and now I have run into a problem where I just don't have the extra money to spend on my car. So should I return these lights or will they work with the stock bulbs?

The stock bulbs will work, they just won't be very bright. The biggest issue is night visibility for you.

They will work with the stock bulbs. The housing is darker so maybe visibility can be an issue.

Yeah I'm thinking that also. I don't want to have to send them back because I know once I get them ill want then too much haha. Moving Into my first own place so can't spend another $130 on HID kit. May have to see how bad visibility is and if It'll be dangerous or not.

You can buy an eBay hid kit for half that price as well.

Thank you so much. Should I also do the fogs or just leave the stock bulbs? Does this same company offer fog hid kit

If you're tight on money them just get the hid for the headlights and later buy the fogs. And I believe they do.

Don't go the hid route. Stay legal and get a better set of halogen bulbs.

Blinding other drivers to improve your vision is not a solution.

Or like stated above you can get halogens, but I personally like the hid look better.

The fogs are coming with halogen bulbs so I may just use those for now. Don't want it to look stupid and have the colors be off.

Thank you for your help! I'm going to order the kit off of eBay that you sent me. And just use the new halogen bulbs for the fogs for now.
