    You want black Halos or whistler modded headlights?
    6LiterEater sells housings that go inside your stock lights
    What exactly are you looking for?

    Have not heard of any leaking issues, but hear a lot of complaints about fitment issues with the ebay headlights.

    I just want the black background, Not to big on the Halos, But mine are scratched up from the blackouts being on. so I dont think the housings would work to well.

    Well, you could have the lenses buffed out to take out the scratches
    or even use that drill attachment headlight restorer kit to clear them up
    google whistler mod, thats what i did and i'm real happy with it

    Yep, you can adjust them a bit. Thats how they looked when I first installed them:


    Day picture:



    Don't hooked the halos up for now. But i have the stock headlamps apart ready for the whistler mod. them I'm gonna decide witch one I like best.

    Light output is much better with the projectors but thats nothing a HID-kit couldn't cure.

    Just took some actual pics:





    passenger side is on the area of the highbeam as much forward as possible.
    probably I could do a little more adjustment to the driver side.

    Just a suggestion...

    You should adjust the beam to where its only one cut off light on the wall.

    I have the same headlights as yours and have the HID kit w/ the pair also and here is what mine looks like.
