Here's my story. I have on 06' B6 Cab with factory zenons. I changed the bulbs to the 10K and I love the look. My headlights are tarnished. I have used every product on the shelf to polish the headlights, but have realized some of the dried humidity slightly fogged the lenses from the inside. I wanted to know if OE non-HID headlight will accept my factory HID balast and bulbs and if this job should be simple assuming the headlights are out of the car. I found these on e-bay, but would like to do this correctly. If any one knows of any othe options, please submit.

You might be able to fit it, but the HIDs are designed to use a projector lens, whereas the halogen use a reflector, so the beam pattern will be wrong, and might blind all oncoming traffic.

I would recommend instead of replacing your housings, take them out, open them up, and use the polishing stuff on the inside.

Thank you for the reply. I have the option to have a local customizingf ship open them up paint inner housings, polish lenses and install leds in surrounds. The cost is considerable but it should look aggressive. I'll keep you posted.
