That's where I buy mine as well. If you ever have issues with one light not turning on when starting the vehicle or any flicking, the relay eliminates that by giving it constant power.

you don't need them, but if lets say your alternator couldn't put out enough power to keep the supply up..you could add the relays to help out. of course if that's the case i'd look into a new alternator

When you ordered. What did you need? Do you need the eliminator and the adaptor cables and HID Harness? I'm looking into getting a 35w 8k kit. With just low beams.

Will it matter with smoked headlights? And I just need the kit and the mounting stuff. Not the harness, eliminator, or adaptor cables? I have smoked headlights with zxe bulbs.

Buy the 55w kit then if it were me. 35w is bright but yo really shine through a smoked housing 55w is best imo.

Keep in mind smoked housing can distort color output as well
