With an 06 you have H7 lights, so instead of buying someone's "kit" of dubious quality you can get OEM-grade HID components- D2S 4300K bulbs and standard Hella or Phillips ballasts. The D2S bulbs will fit directly into your H7 lights with a cheap set of adapter rings (readily available on Ebay and from various vendors).
The results will still not be as optimal as true OEM HIDs such as a set of STi lights or a full retrofit, but they will be far better than what you'd get from an aftermarket setup with rebased bulbs plus you will have zero trouble sourcing replacement parts in the future should you need them.
