    I have no hesitation with the job to fit either, just prefer a zero destruction method.
    I think most people have been satisfied with the Morimoto units from what I have seen. They have changed the projectors over the years. Here's a fairly detailed documentation of the install process one member posted:

    I am going to check the one local car in the junkyard. I assume it has halogens, but worth a look.
    There is some trimming required. I believe the brackets are slightly different, but it's not too involved from what I remember.

    A few new pieces of info. I did confirm my lights are ZKW. They have AL covers, but the housing had the silver ZKW sticker on the top and the Xenon projector lenses do not have a line across them.

    Also, the only local junkyard car that still has headlights is a pre lci with halogens.

    I found a regional junkyard with a fair price on a set of lci xenons, but so far they refuse to check the brand or part number for me...
