    Project i am going to do but first.
    here we go i have plug and play hid in car.
    remove 9005 bulb from daytime running order 9005 hid instead of the h11 i have put in 9005 hid
    order 9005 to h11 wire harness and place in h11 (i have to buy h11 bulb with high beam if they sell it)
    reason for this is hid is brighter in lens without the projector so basically put hid in place of high beam and put daytime running
    in projector spot,
    hope i explained it let me know what u think
