Have you thought about switching to LEDs? They don't require an Ballast and is about equal or more in brightness.

I was referring to pics of a completed retrofit. I'll definitely look into that, sounds like it would look amazing

Edit: Whoops, wrong quote

I've considered it forsure. I just wasn't sure how to do it or even where to start. Electrical is my weakness.

I'm not that experienced in electrical either.

if your headlights bulb don't have an dust cover, and you should be good for LEDs since they require an heatsink of some kind of the back.
While the HID sometimes extra power for the battery and need to place an ballast box somewhere in the engine bay.

I'm also doing an LED Conversion on my fog lights. More of them are just plug-n-play type.

so we get a bigger hood scoop to create more free area to get to our engine, then we throw a mesh screen which reduces the free air by say 40%... this may even reduce the all the gains and decreased the overall air flow into the engine. Just saying, maybe best for the winter only. Unless you find a bigger mesh I do like the look, but the sacrifice is the functionality
