Then you'll need an HID kit. Good brands include XTec and Apexcone. These include a bulb, a ballast, and an ignitor. Some brands have the ignitor built into the ballast unit.
Then you need to decide what temperature you want. This decides what color HID and usable light output.
3000K - alright, very yellow
4300K - best output, whiteish blue
6000K - bluish
8000k - purple
anything above 8000K should nto even be considered. In fact dont even pick 8000K.
