The kit install would be pretty easy. Stick with the kit, there's a good chance you'd switch to the kit after having the bulbs anyways.

Very easy to install man, think of it as installing a bulb, its pretty much the exact same concept besides mounting the ballast, I've done it a million times I'm sure you can too

It's not hard, just take your time. I had never dropped a bumper before when I put installed my kits. Just go through the stickies and plan it out. We are here to help with questions.

The bulbs are from Autolumination its there 3k to 3.5k Yellow.

Headlights & Fog Lights

I can try to take some night pics from inside but they are not wired to come on without the headlights which might overpower them.

cool, thanks. you should be able to see them with the headlights on. mines shine a lil above the blue and pink cutoff. you can also see the yellower light on top of the 4300k headlights.

i am planing on getting PIAA Plasma Ion Crystal Yellow bulbs. at that 50+ price point i am looking at HIDs as well.
