1. easy install, everthing was there as I expected.
2. 6000K IMO
3. additional wiring should come with P46 for angel eyes.
4. wherever you feel safe.

If you wanted Xenons but did not care about Angel eyes are there better kits?

you could go and find a set of used oem bixenon headlights. but then you'll need to do some wiring to make the bixenon function work.

You can always just purchase the P46's and not wire the angel eyes.

In any case, to the original poster, install should take about 2 hours for the average DIY. It is 100% plug and play and should you run into any issues, we are available via phone, email and AIM for support.

I recommend you go with 6000k so as to match the 6000k angel eyes.
