Ok guess I'll check out the hids see the wiring and go from there and figure it out

Blah blah blah I know anything over 6k is useless. Its just someone always has to say something when someone has an HiD KiT. Also for any one who's done the H9 to H11 do you just buy the cheapest H9 or should i get something specific?

Can anyone recommend a wicked strong, rock chip resistant matte or flat black paint in a rattle can?

Had the front end resprayed little while back. The matte I had the shop put on the grill is speckled with bits of chrome where the paint is being chipped off.
