ddmtuning, xenondepot, or hidnation. Better to spend a bit more and retrofit though.

DDM tuning kits are the cheapest I've come across. I have them in my fogs for years, no issues.

That said, please do put HID's in your stock headlights. You will blind oncoming traffic.

I was flipped off by so many driver's while I had HID's in my stock headlights. A retrofit will cost you around $500. but it really gives a Prelude that updated look.
