      It would take some work. I believe you'd have to modify the hole for the bulb as well as the holding bracket for it to fit. It would be easier to just buy a new set of hids.

      If you bought a "universal" hid kit off ebay or those cheap plug and play ones they sell all over the internet then yes you can keep your old ballasts and just buy H1 bulbs.

      The projector holes need to be modified to fit the HID bulbs as they are slightly larger than standard H1 bulbs, take a rotary tool like a dremel and just enlarge the opening of the hole in the projectors.

      My suggestion is to buy new HID kit it will enhance your car look and as far as my concern HID's come in different Kelvin ratings that determine the colour of light output of the bulb. Ranging from 3000k (Yellow) to 4500-6000k (White) to 8000-12000k (Blue to Purple) and then exotic colours like red, green, pink, purple, dark blue. Most of all HID's, including the 12000k bulbs have a much higher Lumen output then halogen bulbs do. But the short and quick is that they are extremely bright headlights that can be put on just about any car out there and most of the time result in a blinding bright white light.
