Perhaps like an angel eyes or ghost eyes look?

Would you purchase a replacement headlight housing for your first or second gen Intrepid, perhaps with H.I.D. at a considerably decent cost for what you're getting?

I know I sure as hell would like to ditch my cheap plastic housings for something much more appealing looking like angel eyes, or just a better designed stock looking model. H.I.D. even would be nice.

Would you purchase something like that?

I'd love to get something for the Concorde that didn't use the proprietary XS style lightbulbs.

But if it's angel eye....I'd be all over that as long as it's under $1k

ta hell with angle eyes I WANT HID DAMNIT ...... just not wanting to do the full front end mod to a 300m special to get that, if aftermarket units exsisted I'd get one........ almost tempted to see if Eclipse lights are the same size(that'd be cool) but I've yet to have time/cash to find a set to test

Anything, If there was a different housing of glass or better plastic design out there for some set amount of cash with much better light potential, hid.. angel eyes, ghost eyes, whatever.

That's what im asking.

abosolutely,
something that enhances the look of my concorde and has a better light output, i'd definitely be willing to buy something like that.
the stock ones aren't very appealing cosmetically, and even with replacement bulbs, they arent the brightest.

I most certainly would. I can't see worth a shit at night, the lights are basically angled at the ground. I have to drive with my brights on and it still isn't as bright as it should be. I hate night driving.

You should be able to use the standard (non XS) bulbs. I know I can. My PIAA bulbs are "non XS".

Have you tried aligning your headlights?

Well my concorde's headlights are ok, but boring, fog lights are needed.

The concorde does NOT take 9006 or 9005 bulbs. I know that for a fact because my non XS PIAA bulbs are boxed up ready to be shipped out...

And yes the concorde lights ARE pointed at the ground no matter how much alignment you do. According to the little alignment thing, mine are pointed a bit upward, but I still see them focused mostly about 15 feet in front of me with very little light going anywhere else. The high beams are alright, but I hate driving with them on because I have to keep turning them on and off as to not blind other cars.

The problem is that the concorde housing is totatly different from the intrepid housing. It's unlikely at best that an aftermarket housing would fit both.

2 projectors behind the oem lense would be nice. One for highs, one for lows. Angel eyes would be a nice addition, but not totally needed.

HID would be too expensive for parts. Besides, if you really want HID you can just buy a kit.
