converting to HID requires more than just a bulb. You will need a balast and some wiring modifications. It is also strongly recomended you either purchase new headlights with projector style lamps or retrofit projectors into your stock headlights, as the stock "reflector" type headlight is not suited to HID. Many here have made the switch to HID without projectors, but the problem is the intense light of the HIDs will not be focused and will scatter everywhere, they will not iluminate the road any better, in fact, you might have trouble seeing at night, but you will blind all oncoming traffic.
