Do I need a HID Kit?

I got nice HID bulbs, but I was wondering if I NEEDED an HID kit to have the color for the light, the lights work fine, but the most they are are white, I got 8500K lights, but they don't have the blue it should be.

Sounds like you don't have HID's at all. Did you buy those stupid HID bulbs off of eBay? Post pics of what you got. An HID kit comes with ballasts. And if you really had 8000K, it would have a bluish tint.

Yeah those aren't real HID bulbs. Those are HID "look" bulbs.... which don't really look like HID's. They just have a whiter color than stock. Real HID bulbs will not work without ballasts.

Yes, you did. Research pays off...... you need to have proper projector housings for HIDs as well, you can't just throw them into your stock headlights.

Yea Will do, I'm still kinda new to this whole modding scene, but HID kits are expensive, it's freaking hard to get this money, I just spent my savings on the car , and doing all these modifications are pretty hard myself!
