Default Got some question on OEM HID's

So I'm looking at picking up some OEM 13+ HID's. I've been on ebay doing some research. My question is I see a lot of OEM headlights being sold individually (salvage/junk yard). I have come across quite a few headlights that are in good condition for a fairly cheap price. However a lot of them dont come with wiring or ballast and some of them do come with bulbs while some don't. My question is, if I can pick these up for a fairly decent price. How much would I have to spend/what would I all need for it to work on my 11? Thanks in advance.

I put OEM HIDs in my '09 and went the same route you did. Bought the lights for 200 a piece on eBay. Bought the ballast from the forum member "billinvic retrofits" for what I think was $150 and the wiring harness from him for $100. It takes a little more time but you save a ton of money and the quality is still great.
