Default JDM Bugeye Headlight question

Alright I don't know much when it comes to electrical work. I need a new HID kit for my 2003 JDM STI headlight assembly. I just need some basic specs to order the correct wiring setup for my headlights. Thanks guys!

Specs to order from this webstore:

you need a LHD projector shroud more than anything else... but then any 35w D2S kit should fit unless you have halogen sti lights in which case you need to retrofit different projectors entirely .l.. do you have factory hid lamps or is it a normal sti projector lamp meant for halogen?

Do you know whether the HID bulb, ballast, or the wiring needs replacement?

Problem Solved

If anyone needs any re-wiring for their JDM Bugeye Headlights (HID) or replacement HID Bulbs (many other bulb manufacturers in the market, but decided to give these bulbs a try since i was already ordering from them) visit Lightwerks:

D2S Bulbs

Hope this helps other wiring noobs like me

I forgot to take a Before/After picture, but will take an After soon.
The harness itself just needed to be replaced. But the new bulbs definitely make a difference (god knows how many hours the previous HID bulbs were used for)
Overall im happy with the Lightwerkz JDM STI Harness, but needed minor modifications. And the Morimotos D2S HID bulbs are amazing. Hopefully they last a while.

Can't wait to see this. It'll help me make my decision on which to get (bulbs).
