Default Where to find HIDs? Headlights as well...

Alright, been looking for HID kits for the PT, but with not much luck with the HID sources I'm used to. What are you guys running...if there's any members with HIDs here.

Also, what's a good source for aftermarket headlights, outside of eBay? I found these, but I figured I'd get some feedback from those who know first.

Actually...I'm a HERP DERP. I looked into HIDs for 9006 bulbs...the base is straight just like the 9006XS. lol

But that leaves how to take out the headlights for replacement...Do I need to go through the wheelwells?

To replace the headlights you just need to remove the front bumper cover

But NO other members have used HIDs with the PT?

I'm ordering 6000K HIDs from DDMTuning, with the slim ballasts. Also, adding 3000K yellow halogens for the fogs.

Looking into headlights as well, nobody gave me any feedback on the link I posted:

You guys have another good source for aftermarket heads for the PT?

i purchased the vision headlight assemblies and they are realy nice. had to pull the front bumper to put em in. i put a layer of sealant on em before installing so i wouldn't have to worry bout em fading. been about a year now and they still look brand new.

not to thrilled with the lamps they came with. come spring i'm gonna put sylvania ultras in.
