You're also going to need:
- ballasts: Hella Gen4 5DV 008 290 00
- igniters: 5DD 008 319
- running light sockets (dont have a part #)
- high beam bulbs: H7
- city light bulbs: W5W/194/2825
- turn signal bulbs: 3457

The reason people say to use the Machs or the Mach-a-like is because they use the e55 projector which is one of the most popular projectors for OEM use(came factory on many BMWs, Audis, Jaguars, Mercedes, etc). Its not the best projector in the world, but its still a really good projector and its light years better than anything you're going to get from eBay shit setups or Spyder/Spec-d products. Those setups are so cheap because they are crap.
So it would seem all of these together would be around $400, or roughly the same cost of a used pair of Machs. Interesting. It may not be worth it to piece a SpecD/Spyder kit together if that's the case, especially if the Mach/Machalike projectors are so much better.
