I will say this. Most aftermarket headlights with projectors in them are designed for halogen bulbs. Putting HIDs in them aren't any better than throwing HIDs in your stock housings. Some
projector headlights can't even run HIDs cause the bulb is to long for the housing. BUT I have seen one and only one cheap aftermarket projector headlight housing that someone put in HIDs and the cut off line was perfect. But there where for a GMC.

So with that being said if you going to go against the advise I'm giving and 99% of other members will give. At least get a good HID kit. The $40 kits suck. Get a theretrofitsource.com kit, there $150.

But is suggest in a OEM HID setup or spend the money in a real retrofit!

Sounds like he has stock hid housings and want to use cheap HIDs in it.

If that's the case, it won't work as you need certain bulbs which are ds3 I believe.

Spend the extra coin and get the right kit and harness.

OP please reread you post and clarify what you want cause what your saying makes absolutely no since.

Do you have OEM 09-14 halogen housing you want HIDs in?

Do you have crappy aftermarket projector housings you want HIDs in?

Do you have 13-14 OEM HID projectors?

Yeah make no since. They don't make a single thing that cost $40 for the 13-14 factory hid projectors. That's what confusing and just a FYI there D3S.

They are OEM projector headlights that came off a raptor. No bulbs or ballasts came with them.

Good starting point. [MENTION=122444]bilinvic Retrofits[/MENTION] has the parts you need to make this 100% complete. I'll go find the link.

EDIT:
Link found. It's going to be hard to beat Bil's price on this stuff:
