It's a HID kit but please do it the "right" way and get a retrofit done. Most people go on ebay and buy a HID Kit and throw it on but with a hid bulb in a halogen set up, there is a lot of glare that comes off the headlights (blinding other drivers as well as limiting your field of vision). Look up theretrofitsource.com and search here...tons of threads about it

I know you said you use a quick splice, but how did you get the four light wires into one to use in the splicer?

It looks like he just wrapped the four individual conductors together using electrical tape, and had a single conductor run to the running light circuit.

I hate to copy someone's idea, but I can't wait till my lights come in, and I get to put them on.
