if you get xenon lights your low beam will be HID and your high beam will be halogen
if you get bi-xenon then both high/low will be HID

If you don't order the high beam kit, it won't come with high beams.

Nope. We have a single bulb headlight and the Hi/low kits have a different wiring setup compared to just the low setup.

That's correct. DDM sells two different HID kits at least for the 35w that I have. The wiring setup is different between the two kits. The low kit just has two separate adaptor wiring kits. The hi/low kit has one adaptor and then a harness that goes to the other headlight to tie them in.

I hate the HIDs the previous owner put in my 98 but have been lazy about removing them. They are the Xenon ones and the halogen Hi beams are complete ***. I could see better with my old 95 Cobra and Silverstars in the headlights/fogs and the fogs modded to come on by themselves and stay on with the high beams.

Please don't get Halos. I know all the cool kids are doing it but it makes SN95s look like **** up front.

+1 on the 05+ they look good, but not on anything before that.

The best lights for a 94-98 car are either the OEM Cobras/Replicas or the Diamond smoked Depo ones from LRS. Anything else does not look right. For the Edges I have no idea why anyone would go away from a good set of clean smoked stockers.

I'm not a fan of the one piece lights on a 94-98 car. To each their own though.
