    Are you talking about the breathless performance conversion? That's the only one I've see, and I heard the quality of those aren't the best.

    ive heard the same. essentially your paying for the custom molded plastic piece that goes where your old eyelid used to be. the rest is apparently a selection of sealed fog lights right off a wal mart shelf, or close to it... i prefer mine.

    well, the hid kit (bulbs ballasts ignitors and some wires were 215 dollars for an off brand. to get name brand expect closer to three hundred. i went through several kinds of paint, about 20 bucks worth. 10 dollars woth of pvc, jb weld, and expect to pay anywhere from 150 all the way up to 300+ dollars for a set of projectors. (mine were free, i pilfered them from my job) add in the couple months it took to accumulate all the parts and perfect it so rather pricey. if you go frugal like me 200-250 (if you can find projectors for free) or you can buy a complete kit from a few vendors online for around 4-500 dollars.
