OR do i need to get the HID kit and this --> http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=36476

Unless you know what you are doing I would not install these yourself. They pack serious voltage and will kill you if come into contact with something you shouldn't be touching by mistake, seriously.

Another valid point. Luckily all the pre-wired kits have safe connectors (OEM Xenons, ours, etc)

I was looking at your kits, look good. Does the kit include the ballasts and everything else needed - the HID bulbs?

I'd be very leery of these products. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I'd recommend working with JLevi on your projectors. He's got a kit that includes everything - the xenon projectors and DDE's, and he'll be available for all your install questions.....customer service is great Who are you going to call if this random ebay kit doesn't work correctly? Just something to think about......
