Hi there

I got a Kensun bixenon HID kit and was going to do it in the stock housing.
Now I am considering doing a prebuilt projector housing from one of the vendors here.

If the housing accepts regular single xenon HID bulbs, will it accept bixenon as well? Is there a bulb size difference? I am referring to 35watt not 50.
I have 2 weeks left to return/exchange the HID kit, so I don't want to find out the hard way that it won't work after the fact. I'd rather keep all the packaging together if I am returning instead of opening and trying if I don't need to.

Thanks
Nick

Looks like there are no bixenon H7 bulbs. Yes the ones I have are H13 (9008) and are bixenon to fit the stock housing.
Where could you tell that I needed an H7? Was it in the link I provided? Maybe I overlooked that somewhere.

Seems like I would then have to stick with a halogen for the brights, which is fine by me even though I would prefer the bixenon.

Looks like I didn't read it completely either...

In the description, you'll find:

These lamps accept an H7 low beam and an H1 high beam.

There we go, thanks.
I emailed them asking for a pic of the cutoff. I'm not keen on a DIY projector, even though it would be nice.
There are alot of generic no name assemblies out there on the internet, I want something pretty good, doesn't need to be perfect.

You can wire or not wire the halo and leds, owner preference. Most have them though, no getting away from it.

If I choose to not wire the halo and led strip, would these be simple plug n'play? Obviously, I'm talking about just straight halogen bulbs for now. I would seriously consider these if there were no splicing needed.

I am still in the learning phase with the install of these and most do not come with instructions.
As far as I know, most are meant for halogens, but many will also accept HID bulbs too.
See I got H13 HID kit, now I have to exchange for H7 if I do the projector.
