Default HID lights for 2007 Honda Accord EX-V6 4dr?

I am purchasing a vehicle as described in the subject line, but ithasn't arrived yet.Once I take delivery, I want to swap out the stock lights for HIDXenon lights. I want to do as little work as possible, so if I canchange the stock bulbs for Xenon bulbs and keep the stock headlight assembly, that's what I want to do.I want lights that are white--not purple or blue. My vote for best answer will go to someone who:a) Describes the stock lights that are on this car.b) Points me to one or two (secure/reliable) places where I can purchase replacement bulbs, or if necessary, entire headlight assemblies.c) Show me the *specific* bulbs that I will need for this car.Thank you for your time and consideration.Regards,Mysstere

you cannot just take your stock bulbs out and insert hid bulbs. you need to buy an HID kit..they run from $200 all the way to $500 depending on which ones you want.if you want the pure white light, you will need the lowest temperature rating you can get.which is between 4000k and 5600k HID.the ones above that is mostly color, like purple and blue..which in most places are illegal to drive with anyways.stay away from high temperatures like 8000k and 11000k.you need some tools like a power drill and some electrical know-how..otherwise, it isn't that difficult to install.if your car doesn't come with projectors, the lights will not have what is known as a 'cut-off' line..this line is what keeps your light beams in a more narrow fashion..similar to BMW and Mercedes.lastly, you can get what is known as a casper shield if you do not have projectors in your car. i know that NO Honda has stock projectors..Acura has them, but Honda does not provide projectors in their cars.
