...to have an \'01 facelift before I install the HID system? Or, perhaps a better question is, if I plan on installing the \'01 facelift (eventually), should I do the facelift before installing the HID system? Or, does it matter? For now, I\'m more interested in Angel Eyes and HID w/o the facelift, but if it\'s a BFD, I\'ll do the facelift first. Thanks for any input.<br><font size=+1 face="comic sans ms">

Dear Sir,
The best situation you could be in is to upgrade your front end (like you say your going to do), and get the OEM housings with A/E + Factory Equipped Xenon. Retrofitting doesn't compare to the factory equipped housings holding a bare d2s bulb. This upgrade maybe pricey, so reach in your pocket before you start your project and figure out how much you would like to spend on it.
Good Luck!

Thanks,
Jeff

the factory setup. Will tackle a piece at a time - facelift first/HID second.<br><font size=+1 face="comic sans ms">
