I've seen a couple of 34's with Angle Eyes. It all depends on the color of the car I guess. I say a set on a black 34 with black tinted windows and it looked really nice and clean. At night they really light up the road, in fact they almost blinded me when i was driving towards him.

It should look just fine and if you don't think they do, just idsconnect the suckers. lol
Looking at their site, the Projector 34 + Xenon is what you need (SHOULD be real xenon, but they don't make it clear that it comes with ballasts). It also cost $549.00. The projector 34 alone is just the assemblies with an h7 socket for standard halogen bulbs.

Call them up and ask. Make sure they come with ballasts, not relays, etc etc.
D2S bulbs CAN be rebased to H7, 9005, 9006, etc so thats not something that you should really worry about. I'd be more worried about the quality of the projector / beam pattern. A good projector is more than just a round bubble of glass!

Right, without a ballast, they CANT be HID's, they have something like a 20kV startup voltage or some ridiculous number like that.
Ask the manufacturer of the projector, as if they differ in any way from the projector 34 meade for halogen. Ask if the lense is clear or fresnel. It might be pushing it, but maybe you could get pictures of beam patterns from them? Maaan, good HID equipment without a good projector is just... blah.... They really do make a huge difference. I imagine they're pretty good though. I mean... people who haven't had a FULL HID set up (meaning proper projectors, etc) are totally happy with the jump from Halogen to HID in an improper projector. It's just us few who know how much better it can really be

Dont get me wrong, theres nothin wrong with that, that'll light up the road insanely better than halogens ever will.
But it still wont perform quite as well as a car that came stock with HIDs. Let me see if I can dig up some beam pictures with my old projectors and my new ones. (no promises though, those pix are OLD! lol)
