Better be something that already has HID, otherwise, it's illegal to install them onto a car with halogen.

Yes, that's very true... people also go faster than the speed limit too!

From my understanding, HID kits made to replace halogen headlamps are not DOT certified... thus illegal to install on your car if you plan on driving it on the street. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find any places selling them anymore.

maybe in ur state

HID kits are still everywhere in canada, not just turner shopts but ur local
napa, lordco type shops.

and yes u are right hid kits are not leagle for non hid cars, because of the
DOT/SAE regulations on the housing. but like u said, ppl go faster than
speed limit.

Heh, it has nothing to do with my "state", it has to do with the entire country (US)... of course, Canada is a totally different story.

The NHTSA has been cracking down on companies that offer aftermarket HID conversions for cars that were produced with halogen reflector headlights. This is an example of why:

Halogen reflector housing with HID bulb:
