If you have the small square-ish black connectors still, then you plug those right into the bulb.

And you should send me your HID bulbs, kthx.

^i never knew about those guys, look like theyd be better than the regular hids but at almost $100 for a pair id almost rather just spend a little more and buy projectors.

I just put in a Silverstar ULTRA and its just as dim as the old original bulb. Really should have gone HID.

btw does anyone have problems with light on the road when leaning at night?
