Need help with headlight

I purchased an HID kit and installed it on my 97 tacoma with some ebay headlight housings (or whatever you call them) that were only 15 bucks, but the headlight housings have a little round piece of glass inside of them that looks like a magnifying glass that actually distorts the headlights so that theyre not that bright and they also leak .. Does anyone know what headlight housings I should go for and where I can find them? theyre just the standard 7x6

Re: Need help with headlight

Looks like it gives you the HID appearance with your lights off and the light comes from the projector like a real HID setup would but still uses halogen bulbs. Probably not made for HID bulbs. Could be wrong. Try some 9003 bulbs and see what it looks like.
