Headlights

Is there a good "projector" HID kit for the 2008 Expy or are there better bulbs for the OEM reflector lenses? Also, is the factory wiring for the headlights through a separate relay or does the power flow through the headlight switch.

These appear to be the only alternative:
Black Projector with Amber Reflectors Headlights C-RF-A | eBay
I would purchase a quality HID kit afterwords and mate them together

bought one of these kits
Bi-xenon FX-R Stage III Kit - Complete Retrofit Kits from The Retrofit Source Inc to retrofit into my oem headlights

The ebay ones are garbage, and the above ebay link appears to link to the most expensive seller on ebay. this is the cheapest listing i believe 07 08 09 10 11 FORD EXPEDITION EL XLT LED CCFL PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS BLACK 1 PAIR | eBay at $224.00 vs the $349.45 that was posted above. They are all made by eagle, and upon discussing this with a friend of mine who is the in business, eagle is one of the worst in terms of quality.

Thanks for the input. The first seller doesn't ship to Canada and the second vendor charges $80 for mailing. I'll accept your word on the quality. If I do this change I'll do it right the first time. Have you installed the Bi-xenon kit yet? It appears that you have to open the headlight housing to install the projector shrouds. Is that correct?
