    just find one that is in your price range. I have purchased probably about 10 sets for different vehicles for around $70-$80. just make sure it comes with the ballast and bulbs. if you just want a cheap set of HIDs. i know alot of guys here do the retro fit which is a bit more pricey

    i have 10000K and they are pretty bright, but there is brighter.

    and yes they both work, i am not sure the difference. i think they are the same bulb. i could be wrong. but when i searched the bulb number those came out.

    google sylvania. and it should be OSRAM SYLVANIA and you can search your bulb number. but the bulb numbers that i gave you are what i found after i searched

    havent had a problem with the 55Ws yet. They should be fine, they have lots of room in there and there are vents on the back side of the light to vent hot air. I didnt go 55W for the fogs bc they are smaller and dont have the vents. Probably would have melted....
