Your going to have to do minor things with any kit that you get. Phillips is going to give you the best light output, they are standard OE on most HID equiped cars if I am correct. You next best bet would be XTEC, great light output, the mcculloch doesn't have quite the light output, good and bright but less lumens to light the road with. Hope that helps

As 04char6 mentions, any kit will require minor modifications. The XTEC ones req'd the following:
1. Drill hole in dust cap
2. Widen the negative connector on the OEM harness so the XTEC one will fit (very easy to do)

Then you mount the ballasts and you're done. Do a search, there's a couple of walk-thrus that will help.

I've had the XTEC 5000K kit installed in my car for about two to three weeks now. I can definitely say that I'm one of the brighest people on the road... i.e. my lights are brigther than most cars ... even when I compare myself with cars like Acura, BMW and Mercedes with their OEM HID systems.

The first night I had them, I pulled up next to a C230 Kompressor and my headlights simply took over the road. Made the guy in the Merc look at me too.

Now... if I can get rid of these crappy halogen projectors and put in some nice Bosch ECE's, I'll be laughing.
