hid ordering question?

I'm looking at the hids on DDMtuning.com and the 59 dollars one and im going to get the 55 watt since its only 15 bucks more.

1. do i need anything other than what i order right there do i need the hid wireing or anything like that?


2. can i use my 55 watts with my stock headlights on my 94?

35w hids are pretty bright as it is...

55w i'd imagine be blinding opposing traffic...


sure...run 'em in your stock housings....ther'll be massive amounts of glare...just like my subaru that doesn't have the dome over the bulb.

ballasts, bulbs, stock plug to ballast harness, ballast to bulb harness...

that's all you should need.

i highly suggest a relay harness from the get-go.

go all out on a harness...it ties both sides together, rather than still having a fuse for each side...and the possibility of one side not turning on w/o shutting it off and turning back on.

just a suggestion....you want a relay harness as it pulls power directly from the battery, rather than the factory headlamp plug.

what is the down side to just running them through the headlight plug? are they likely to burn out quicker or something?
