u can do it without taking out the headlight. its not hard at all.

make sure u dont touch the bulbs with ur bare fingers tho. if u think that will be a problem find some nylon gloves

Nah, after all you taught me too! haha but I looked more into the projectors and halos and stuff and Its just not worth it to me. Too many what ifs with them. I really dont wanna spend 200 bucks on something that has a good job of having problems. I just bought silverstars and aimed the headlights higher. Maybe if they come out with some better halos then I will. I do know lots of stuff bout HIDs now though thanks to you! haha

Idk i had trouble getting my headlight out. It's like you have to wedge it out or something because i couldn't mine out.

They're easy to get out after you do it for the first time.
