    Do you need special wiring to put HID's into 1st gen projector headlights? Or can I just plug and play?

    As a follow up, if I just throw in the bulbs, do I run a risk of over-heating and damage?

    What website/brand is the most cost effective to buy?

    Search DDM. Nothing extra is needed if you buy the hi/lo kit.
