If your 1LT does not have the RS Package (were in the same boat) and you want HID Headlamps AND halos like the RS package comes with, you would need the $229 HID (non rs) conversion kit, and the $169 Halo Kit. these 2 things plus 5202 bulbs for the foglamps is exactly what i'm looking at getting right now.

I'm Sure Justin or Johnathan from AAC will chime in here, but if you need immediate help here is Justin's email. he has been very helpful in my questions so far...

The HID bulb kit is ok.....much better than the Halogens but if you want to do it right you need to do an HID Projector retrofit. They are awesome...10x better than HID bulbs and 1000x better than Halogen.

Took your advise and did exactly what you said with the HID's, they are goregeous.I opted for the GX 8000k and they are almost identical at night to the 5202 hids in the fog. Now I just need to find a shop who can install the Oracle Halo's. If anyone knows someone in the Tampa Bay area...Please!

You would have been much happier with a real legal hid kit. All your doing now is blinding people on the road and made your car illegal. A real hid system would have cost you 150-200 more and you would be able to see much better.

The first 2 are what your car looks like. The last 2 are a real HID kit.

I dont know, never tried it with any other headlights but i wouldnt think they could light up as brightly. It kinda makes me feel like i have stadium lights on with brights. I know my Jeep wouldnt but really even with brights on with that its hardly noticeable above low beams lol.
