They are a special bulb, has a ballast box and wiring, there an easy install, just don't get to high of watts and don't go higher than 8k on color, personally I would get 35w 6000k

8k is blue don't go bluer or else you won't be able to see you could go 10k which is the most blue or 12 which is violet but 8 is your best bet

I didn't like 8k when it came to drivin out where there aren't many street lights, 6k will give you plenty of light and they have a nice blue tint.... Just through my experience if your gonna go with the cheap kits get the 1s with the thicker ballast not the slim kit, if you can afford it get digital ballast they last a long time and are worth the extra $70 to $80

Get 6000k it looks great, a nice light with a blue tint. I think 8000k is a little to much.

6000k headlights and fogs.

+1 Aftermarket HID's uncapsuled is like flipping off oncoming traffic. Seriously. If you tint your headlight then HID's would be more justified.

Just get a kit like this except with your type of bulbs, digital ballast are the best and will last the longest
