Got me a HID Conversion kit and figured I'd share with everyone. Ran into a small problem when installing. That's the main reason why I started this thread.

Facts
1. All 3 wires (when lights are off) are hot. Red, Orange and Blue.
2. Orange is your constant hot.
3. When using low beams use Orange as positive and blue as negative.
4. When using High beams use Orange as positive and red as negative.

Although many HID Conversion Kits don't have High beams you get the picture. A few quick pictures were taken at work just to show off a bit.

Hope this is helpful to some!

They hooked right up into the factory wiring. Really no tools needed (only to secure the ballasts). They did come with ballasts and hid controllers.

Xtremesc2: It was plug and play. No wiring to splice at all.

Goofyguy: Had to do it. Always wanted HID's. Now all I have to do is figure out how to manage Hi/Lo Beams. Thanks for ur help though.

The only HI/Lo beam that I have seen is a mechanical HID Bulb housing that will move the bulb into a position that will expose more of the bulb into the reflective housing. I'm going to figure out how much that costs tomorrow.

I purchased them on ebay for 260 including shipping. They are JDM Ballasts with Phillips bulbs. I believe the bulbs are 8300k
