Question type: Car Customization

Can the stock components support aftermarket HID/halo headlights or will i need to replace certain components to properly power and support the new lights?

Maybe not halos but HID's will probably need more power. The better kits might come with a harness but they are usually plug and play I think. Just know that installing HID's into a car not originally equipped with them from the factory is illegal.

Why is it illegal to make that kinda upgrade to the headlights? And I do believe that the kit I bought is a plug and play kit but I'm in Iraq so I am not there to install or even look at my car. I ordered entirely new and customized headlights from "automotivelightstore.com" and all they required was for me to ship them my entire headlight and they customized that and send it back. Thanks for the advice.

as long as youre blinding people into a tree you can doing anything you want to your lights

Halos are legal as long as they are not colored but retrofitting HID's is illegal. Unlike OEM system aftermarket companies make kit that just put out a large scattered beam of intense light. They blind oncoming drivers worse that factory headlights. A lot of there components aren't DOT approved either. So they have no liability if your car bursts into fire.

have ever had an oncoming car come twords you with blue beams? they blind the hell out of ya and they are legal.

Hid's are bright but aftermarket headlight are worse when they are not aimed correctly and aren't designed for use in the stock headlight housing. It is illegal to install them if the car didn't originally have them and you can get a ticket for having them. Look it up.

sounds like field lites on a 4x4.
