    Im new to the civic scene and just got a 93 hatch. i want to put hids in but want to know if i need any xtras like a relay or ultra slim ballast? Can i use just a normal H4 hid kit? I also have some jdm lights that look glass instead of plastic. will the hid hurt them?

    Retrofit!! Hid plug and play kits are not designed for factory housings. They put out a very scattered light pattern and blind oncoming traffic. Save your money and get u a retro fit kit and do it correctly!...as a matter of fact heres a link from one of our mods that explains this.

    Dont do it with out a retrofit, or at the absolute least use some cheap ebay projector houseings or else all your doing is blinding others on the road.

    dont be one of "those guys",
