most HID kits are made for this, although you may need a relay harness depending on the wattage you plan on going with.

Otherwise instead of the HID kit, which usually includes Ballasts, Relay harness, HID bulbs.

You'd just need new bulbs if your car was already pre-equipped for HIDs.

Whoops misread your question,

They should plug and play, only thing that won't plug and play is the "auto-on" connector. Ballasts and everything is inside the Track headlight housing.

rspectx had them installed on his car. They are definitely plug and play for the main part

Hids

It will be much cheaper to get a nice set of aftermarket hids and they will still plug and play as long as you don't try to go too high with the wattage. I put an aftermarket set in my Gen coupe and didn't have to cut any wiring at all. I just plugged the spade connectors from the hid kit directly into the spade slots on the factory light plugs and mounted the balasts, and they have worked perfectly for about six months now. It's about a fifteen minute install from start to finish.

aftermarket HIDS

hi.. I was wondering which set of aftermarket HIDS you had put on your car. Are you speaking of a conversion kit? Please do explain more in detail because I chose not to go with buying the OEM HIDs..

Which brand do you have and where did you get them?

i installed an aftermarket hid kit, and sometimes when i turned the lights on, only one side would come on...i had to turn the lights off and turn them back on and then both sides would work...when i would drive the hid bulbs looked like they were "bouncing" around the inside of the headlight. so i bought a set of KDM HID factory headlights for $700, which included the clear corner reflectors. one of the best purchases i have made so far.
