I might hook them into the lows or their own switch, I don't want them to come on all the time with the DRLs. When does the middle bulb come on? with the headlights?

The middle light will come on as a low beam light

Seems like there's quite a few guys running the Spyders with HID's in here, are they fairly easy to adjust? How's the pattern of the beam?

Bought my truck with HID's in it without projectors, and I know they're obnoxiously bright to oncoming traffic. Looking for a cost effective solution since I'd rather spend mod money elsewhere.

I run my halos with the daytime running lights. I regret buying the EBay version spiders because the fit was not perfect but mostly because the halos aren't very bright. To get halos as bright as import BMW's you have to pay a price

I'd like to know if I actually got spyder lights, since I bought off eBay they could just be cheap copies

I've been searching on this topic for a while, and if you want to replace the whole headlight, the consensus seems to be Recon's. If you just want to cut down on the asshole factor of HID's in stock housings, theretrofitsource.com has some projector housings you can install in your existing headlights that apparently work well.
