There are 2 types of HID lights. The standard bulb that "looks" like hid/xenin lights...and the "real" HID lights.The standard blue lights you see on modified vehicles are simply bulbs that were swapped out. Generally cost 20-60 bux. PIAA are well known for these bulbs..and they come in many color outputs...from very blue color hue to purple or yellow hues. These bulbs are illegal and for off-road use only. You'll get the fixing ticket when the cop wants to pull you over for them. These can also be installed by your BF.The real HID's are more expensive. Typically found on high end luxury vehicles such as a Benz. They omit a purplish hue. I believe they have all kinds of colors now. These bulbs are usually legal. They are now as cheap as 100bux, but I worry if the quality is any good. These bulbs can get as expensive as $400. They use to cost about 800bux. I dont know which brand is good when it comes to real HID's...but be carefull of the 100dollar sets. However thses bulbs have multiple wires, including an electrical balast, etc. It should be installed by a profesional..which can cost around 60bux to install. Nomatter which HID lights you end up buying for your BF...make sure you know the exact Make and Model year of the Civic Si. Older civics use to use the H4 style bulb, and the newer civics use 9004..(not sure)...but you will need to know what bulb will fit in the headlamps of his car prior to purchasing them. If you live in So Cal...go check out SuperAutobachs in Stanton near LB and Gardon Grove. Its a super store that will help u with any aftermarket car need. You mite find something else instead of HID bulbs. They also do installations.Hope this helps. Good luck.

the regular xenon blue headlights you cant see very well when it rains and they are not that bright. Real HIDs are very bright and not very hard to install. You need to find out what his stock bulbs are though H4,9004. My guess is H4 but double check. Then you have to find out what color he wants the lights to be? blue(6000k) blue/purple(8000k). I reccomend the 8000k temp.You can buy the cheaper ones off of EBAY or go with name brand. I bought an 8000k set off EBAY 2 years ago and they are still going strong. GOOD LUCK!
