Does Pnp Hid work well on stock headlights?

I recently purchased a 2004 RSX Type S. I bought the Reteo-solutions 55wt HID kit. Does anyone have this kit on stock headlights? Does it spray light everywhere and blind people? Does anyone jave this kit or similar on aftermarket projector headlights? Which is better? Are you happy? My goal is to have great light output and not get hassled. Thanks everyone.

Classic moment of buying something and THEN do the investigation...smh
You don't have projector headlights so you will indeed blind everyone else so you can see better. "Regular" headlights combined with hids will scatter the light in all directions.

If it was a 94-01 Integra Id say your fine. The stock projectors work surprisingly well with HID's.

The RSX however, is not a projector. I would recommend a retrofit.

With a non-projector headlight like the RSX has, you will benefit more from just using the regular non-hid halogen bulbs that it is suppose to have. And yes, you will blind oncoming traffic and have light scattered.

RETROFIT your headlights ASAP. Check out my build. First of all they look 10X better, you get a perfect cut off line, and you don't blind people on the road!!!

That feeling when...

Ok I assume there is a DIY on here for it....can I black out the housings at the same time? What are the most cost effective OEM projectors?

The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications

I used the FX-R in my civic and they are awesome.

cheapest projectors will probably be tsx. you could just swap lens and make light out put a whole lot cheaper and make output better and NOT blind people

my set up is s2k projectors/ballast with e30 lens and CBI bulbs.

owning an teg is all about how much of a risk you are willing to take

Retrofits arent cheap but the fx-r and tsx-r are very popular. and yes you can black out the housing.

I think my solution will be mini H1 projectors into an aftermarket pair of black housings. Thanks everyone!

Anybody notice that the hid pnp kits, make a fast wink. Do those 6 ohm load resistors take care of that?

don't be that asshole who does a PnP kit and blind everyone else on the road. If your going HID do a tsx or sk2 retrofit .
