    did you drill holes or end up just placing them in the housing? I means I would be extremely happy if I didnt have to. I contacted kb and they stated the srx example posted was from this forum probably but i wonder whos car it was so maybe they could chime in as well.

    I've done it. They can be slipped in via the cover when you install the bulb. The error code eliminator will go in there also. It saves some of the wiring because you connect directly to the connector in the housing. You may need to use a zip tie to make sure the wires aren't touching the metal projector when it's in the housing. It works pretty well. I removed the whole housing from the car though. If you are trying to do it without removing the housing I'm not sure how easily it will all stuff in.

    bwclemons.... where did you order from and how much was the kit with the code eliminator. Was it just plug and go with no flicker problems and everything still works like from factory??

    Thanks!!

    Yes, everything works fine. I would use kbcarstuff.com. Get the standard VOLT Hid system. H10 bulb and
    4300k for the color. Also get the can us fix. Do not get a harness. Everything will stuff into the housings and you will not have to cut anything and from the outside no one will know anything is different from the original. I'm not sure if everything will be able to be done without removing the housing because I did remove them for a install. I would try though. You can always remove the intake for the passenger side and the fuse block for the drivers side. I personally would remove the front cover, but that's me.[ Xenon depot also has good systems so you could use them also.
