You got those really quick. They look good but but your camera must not do justiice because they appear to be halogens color wise.

6K has a light blue to it but 10K would be very blue. I BELIEVE you can swap bulbs without changing ballast but I'm not too sure.

you can swap the bulbs out to any color you want.... but anything over 6000k is pointless... 8000k is very blue and very blinding but only produces the same amount of visible light as a halogen... 10000k and 12000k are less light than a halogen... and will just hurt peoples eyes more than anything

its very simple believe me i never wire anything and i took this one on and was suprised how easy it was..
step 1- lay out all your parts make sure you have an idea of where everything connects etc etc(idiot proof everything only connects to a specific connector)
step 2- remove headlights and install the new hid bulbs ( do not touch the glass parts with bare hands ruins the bulb)
step3- find a spot close to the headlights to mount the ballasts ( i took my time on this step and didnt drill any holes i looked around and found existing bolts to use)
step 4- run the harness ( i took my time to do it clean i ran it in front of the radiator and tucked the wires up under the plastic shroud only wire vissable is the power cable going to the battery)
step 5- once harness wires are run connect the ballast to the relay harness then you need to ground each side by cleaning a spot and drilling a hole to mount the grounds
step 6- now you are ready to hook the headlights up the hid bulb connects into the pigtails off the ballasts again the connections are self explanitory reinstall the remaining stock bulbs for the turn signals

oh i forgot to mention on one side there is a connection from the harness that connects into the old halogeyn bulb connector you have to connect that before putting headlights back in

step 7- finally connect your power wire to the battery and before actually bolting the headlights back in just put them inplace and turn on your new lights make sure everything is good and your good to go...

oh last but not least on the side you still have a stock headlight bulb hanging i took it out and wire taped the conector to keep it from moisture and what not

thats about it man
