Thanks for the heads up, I wasnt aware that I cant install just the HID bulbs in my stock headlight housing. Would you be able to tell me the reason why? I'm guessing the intense heat...

Sucks though, because I have everything already set up in the car. Ballasts installed, wires ran, zip tied the whole shabang to make it look nice.
