Default Can you buy headlight bulbs that are just as bright as HIDs without buying a kit?

To make a long story short can get some aftermarket headlight that are bright but the hids are a different kind of bright...the HIDs project light while headlights just throw out light all over the place..good luck

HID kits aren't as bright as real HID lights even, so no. HID kit + Halogen housing is illegal. HID lights need to be focused with a cutoff to not blind oncoming drivers, and your stock housings don't have that cutoff. Check the NHTSA website for proof.
