What's up everyone,

I haven't been on this forum in like 9 years, but I still have my box, still very young, still very boosted. I see now that some parts for the xB's are more affordable than they were back in the day when
everyone was modding our cars. I can't seem to locate anything about the one part I have always wanted, the Bb Zenkei HID headlights. Does anyone know if they are a direct replacement for the
stock headlight lenses that come with the USDM xB?

Also, anyone know how the wiring situation works? I know it's a long shot that anyone is still around on here that might know...

According to post #6 there is going to be some re-wiring involved and it looks like the lights aren't true HIDs but can be converted to HIDs just like any other headlight.

I saw that post, and I think I called them the wrong name, they are the tru HID with the ballast built into the bottom of the housing that came with the 01-04 in Japan. Kouki I believe is what they are listed for on ebay. Here is a link of what they look like, they have the separate cavities for two different bulbs rather than the one that we have here in the states.

There are quite a few listing on Ebay now-a-days, much more affordable options, and it seems like that are all around 250-300 for a pair. I am just curious if they will directly fit in out existing models or if they are shaped any different.
