Depo has always been popular among the aftermarket headlights

What would be the best to use with HIDs? Don't want to be that guy with the glare from HIDs in a reflector housing.

Retrofits. Inspire glare because of the flare is on the opposite side since inspires are RHD

Retrofits are fun if you go and replace the low beam slot.
If you replace the high beam spot they're kind of a *****.

Still working on quads.

Are they plug and play or do you need to modify them? HIDs are pretty inexpensive now, want to do this as painlessly as possible. The one thing I really miss from my Maxima is the factory HIDs.

Yup^

Might recommend painting the housing though to prevent unnecessary glare.

Do these just replace the stock sockets? Is the wiring plug and play for a 2006 accord sedan?

Anyone know of any good plug and play headlights? Mine are faded and since I'll be installing fogs in a couple of weeks I wanted to install new headlights. I like the halo spec D's but honestly I feel like they are super cheap. I am looking to spend pretty decent money on a pretty decent headlight.

I have seen the halo spec d's in person before

Any plug-and-play aftermarket headlight featuring "projectors" or "halos" is going to look super cheap like you said. If you want to pull off this look properly you will need to retrofit these components yourself (ref.

Depo makes a great direct replica. Fitment is exact and I have had a pair installed for close to a year now with no sign of premature wear. From my research, spec D is another reliable brand however you will want to go with the direct replica.

I went with this version with the black bezel *purchased from amazon for ~$130 shipped:
Depo 317-1131P-US2

p.s. regularly applying a headlight protectant (I generally just use wax) will help prevent fading/hazing of the lens

I tried to check your stuff out but a lot of the photobucket pics were removed so I couldn't see your work.

another tip, most aftermarkets eventually have leaking problems and could heat and reseal them before any condensation probs
