installing MTECs

Ok I purchased the MTEC high beams for my celica, but I can't install them. I have the factory HID's, so there is like a black cover over those lights, like a small dome, and there is no way you can reach the high beams. Has anyone installed these with the factory HID's? How canI do it or do I need to take it to Toyota? Thanks.

That sounds like a lot of work! So that means your bumper too? I would probably rather Toyota to do that..

If you have HID's why are you worried about the highbeams. Plus I think you will ruin the look of the housings with blue bulbs, they will make the whole housing look blue.
