There are now plug and play LED replacement bulbs that run cool and give very bright white light output with no need for ballasts and what not.

That said, if you do not have projector lights now, but the standard "reflector" housing, HIDs or LEDs should not be used.

Yes. . . n that would be best. You might find some factory OEM projector lights on Ebay.
