with 35 watt adjusted properly, you won't need high beams. if you want the best output from 35 or 55 watt, a projector retrofit is your best bet. no matter what, HIDs in stock housings will scatter a substantial amount of light. with a 55 watt being so many times brighter than a 35 watt is, you run a higher risk of getting hassled by the police or be a dickhead to other drivers.

the projectors go inside your headlight housing.
