Default Help on where to get HID Housing

I just got a kit off of DDM Tuning and now I need to look for projector housing or retrofitting, or just halos put into my stock housing if that is best.

Does anyone know a good reliable site or store where I can get some for cheapz?

Car: Honda Civic 2003.

I was looking on ebay for some, and I know they are cheap, heck some even come with HID kits, but I don't know if those new projector housing will have the same bulb size as my factory housing and in the description, most of them don't say what bulb size fits their projector housing.

If its an aftermarket projector for your car it should still have the factory bulb size they normally only specify if its another size because most people look for a plug and play scenario. I just got my halo/ projector lights for my sierra last month and used ebay saved about 200 bucks! then got my hid 10k kit the projector amplifies the light and focuses it great

See I was thinking it would be the same bulb size but one random dealer I saw on eBay said that their Kits were an H1 bulb size when my factory bulb size is an H4. But you're probably right about the plug and play.
Do you remember the name of the eBay dealer so I can see I'd they have halo projector housing for my car as well?

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

How about per say this one? It's a halo projector, but I don't know if the original bulb size will be the same for this. I guess I can assume that it is since it would have been other wise stated?

you don't need projectors to use HIDs.

if you think you really need projectors, search google for them. you'll find them.

I do need them. I had HIDs a year ago but I took them out because the light was scattered instead of being focused to the ground, so it ended up blinding everyone. An old civic like mine, with halogen housing isn't compatible with HIDs.

I hate the rumor that you have to use projectors for HIDs.

There is no such thing as a HID housing either.

Then tell me how to fix my problem. I already have HIDs but it's not very bright on the ground, like I said, the light is scattered making it less bright and also blinding all on-coming traffic.
