HID/Projector upgrade... what do I need and where to get?

Hey guys, just found this place online. I just bought a 2011 Focus SES Black ext/Black leather int. I with the look I want to achieve, I need to upgrade to HID/Projector headlights... and I'd like them to be black chrome or just black. I've seen some cool looking halo ones online and I've found them as cheap as $395- but a couple of people are telling me I need a balast and some other stuff... so what should I get, where do I get it, and how much of a pain is it to put in? I've done wiring stuff before and I don't think it'll be a problem, but I want to make sure I have all the parts I need so I can get it all done at one time. Thanks!!!

If you get the Halo projectors off ebay, go to www.DDMTuning.com and look at there HID kits. The ebay projectors come with a halogen bulb, I think its a H9. Pick a H9 kit should run around $40 with shipping. Also welcome to the forums.

Edit: Shouldn't be hard to put everything in if you know how to change your bulbs. There is a write up here on how to do it. I'll find the link.
