Stock headlight bulbs are 9006. If I remember correctly the ebay projectors are h2 bulbs.
h2 does not equal 9006. So no it won't work. Unless you get h2 hids.

Correct. Unless you do a retrofit, but thats quite a bit more work. Just get a set of nice 2gb headlights. Very nice cutoff line, and hardly any stray light IF you have them aimed correctly. Ive heard the projectors for our cars mutilate the HID lighting.

Or do a little work and retrofit in the PROPER HID equipment instead of those god awful pnp "kits".

Go with some hid's in the stock 2gb lights and make sure the lens of the light is nice and clear.

Another bad idea.

I have RS4 Projectors and Valeo Ballasts retrofitted, I did them myself, were a bit of a pain in the ass getting everything lined up, Sealed it all to find out... the damn angle is a little messed up from afar. Low beams are supposed have a downward aim to them. Mine are upwards, so if a car is about 5+ car lengths away from me, it seems like I'm high beaming the poor sob. Now I have to take apart the whole thing to fix the angle.

But anyway, my point is, HID Retrofit > ebay projectors and HID bulbs.
Might cost a little extra, but looks much better and the results are a lot better too.
