You are going to want a 35w H11 HID kit.

A lot of people use DDM kits. I have not but I have read good things. My headlights are a Morimoto kit that came with my retrofits and they are very nice.

I plan on doing the same thing soon.

You also need ballasts and a wiring harness as well.

Not exactly but they are plug and play. Basically you put the ballast between the car's wiring and the bulb. It is really easy to do.

So I went to a local shop today just seeing how much they would charge to change the bulbs/ ballast and they said 250-299$. Sound like way to much to anyone else?
