I dont think you need the high beams too but if you want them you can get them for the same price as the low beams.Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.
    can you give me the guys info???

    Actually the lower the color temp. <ex.8000k> the brighter the light is, also the 8000k has a deeper blue tint to it rather than the 4300k witch is more of a bright white.

    The reason it is more for our cars is because you need to buy a conversion kit as well as the hid kit.I f you read the rest of theese post you can get all the info you need.

    When you said you have to change the plug, what do you mean by that? And how do you go about doing it?

    meh... $300 for HID's is cheap, I paid a lot more back in the day for another car of mine. You get what you pay for these days, has never been truer.

    I couldent agree more, I have been around the block with hids before and I have a seller who sells high quality hid kits for 105 shipped. Some kit do things like flicker on and off, not turn on sometimes, cause the radio to be extremely staticky,etc.The seller I buy from gives a one year warranty with all of his kit I have installed his kits in 9 cars two of them are my own.I would not reccomed him if he sold junk.

    As far as changeing the plug goes all I had to do is cut the factory plug off witch is only two wires.I then stripped the wires about 1/2 inch and crimped on two flat female wire connectors on the car and then pluged in the hid ballast. That is all there is to it. The rest is all plug and play.

    i get it soo the plug your talkin bout is goin to plug right in to the ballist.,.,., so from the ballst it goes to the bulb.,.,,.,. oyea am i going to use the plastic peice that comes with the xenon bulb or do i toss that.,., because i noticed the HId bulbs got wires cummin out the back and i cant see pluging the bulb into anything... will the bulb have its own plastic holder to twist right into the seald bbeam??

    The best way to describe it is the hid bulb plugs into the ballast (direct plug in no mods. needed) the kit also comes with an extention wire that plugs into the ballast (also no mods needed) and the other end of the extention plugs into the cars headlight wires,( that you modify as I described earlier) . The bulb sits in the new glass lens and a metal clip holds it in the houseing.The bulb will only go in one way it is that simple.The kit comes with brackets for the ballasts, I used two sided tape. If you have any more questions feel free to ask I will do my best to answer.

    That's partly true. Its best around the middle, 4000k-5000k. Although there aren't many under that. I did see one that was under 4 once on ebay.

    Also, I thought 5000 was whiter than 4300, which is slightly more yellow. Could be wrong.
