Those are a joke and will make your headlights dimmer. I would not install them. They are NOT hids.

If you decide to, though, search for how to change headlights

wow, I didn't realize until just now that those are 100w bulbs, if you put those in your car, you will melt the wiring harness. The headlights are supposed to be 55w, not 100

not worth the return shipping you are going to pay. Eat the $10 you paid, and chock it up to stupidity. Save your money and get a set of HID's (REAL ones).

Yeah, throw those in the garbage. They'll cause major problems, and you'd probably still be better off with stock bulbs. Note the blue glass, decreases light output.

Hey man don't be bummed, you found out the good way. Better this than a thread titled HELP, I fried my headlight wiring!
