Do you currently have HIDs or halogens?

Check out the products from @Max Power. A good number of us have gotten his HID kits.

DDM tuning is also a popular choice.

I had DDM hid kit on mine and yesterday I swtiched them to max power kits. DDM uses cheap material you feel the difference. Wire looks cheap so is bulbs. ballasts makes noise when you turn them on. I had driver side headlight bulb turn off on me couple times driving and one day both did and couple mints later they came back on. I would never get anything cheap for my car. Save some money and get right products.

Depends on if you actually want to do an HID conversion (convert your halogen headlights to HID headlights) or stick an HID kit in your halogen headlights, there's a difference. An actual HID conversion can cost you a few hundred dollars but gives you better light output.

Don't mean to be rude, but if that's the case you wouldn't be using HID kits and should convert to OEM HID's.

Cheap means the material when you can spend little more money and get better product rather then spending 600-700 on each headlights.

I got used OEM HID headlights in working condition for under $400, and fully converted my halogen headlights to OEM HID for under $300, so you don't have to spend THAT much.

LOL, well the OP said he wanted to do an "HID conversion", and IMO that means converting all applicable components to HID, not just changing the bulb. I'm sure he meant he just wants an HID kit, but people should at least know there are other options (I didn't say "better" options, so people can relax lol) since mostly everyone here will just tell him to get a 9006 HID kit.
