Yes those are the bulbs, in the hella head lights. The hella dynabeams are projecter housings for the focus. That cost 500 to 600.

Sorry for all the questions...but do you know if the bulbs show the same color without the projectors, because i like that those are completely white, i don't want much blue at all.

Yes. The projectors just give the cutoff.

youll be much happier with getting higher quality bulbs instead of hids if you are using stock housings. the PIA/hella bulbs will have the same stock pattern, just brighter and more distance. with hids you can use the shields(ive done it before and it stops most of the glare) but the beam pattern looks like ass, all the light is concentrated more in the foreground which in the end, actually makes it harder to see...go with PIAA/hella. youll be happy.

this, people think just because hid's have more output they will be better than halogen in the stock headlight. its not going to help see if all that light is just scattered/thrown in every direction but where you actually want to see.

I've never had problems with ddm tuning, if your going for cheap and good quality. that being said, I'd still go with the site that has retrofitting kits with hid's and score some halos while i'm there. That iss what i'm doing when i eventually get to that job.
