You would want an h4 kit, if you want to maintain your high beams make sure that it is a bi-xenon kit. Also invest the money in the e-code lenses (ebay, or genuine saab they can be found) since you are increases the light output you will NEED a better lense to focus the light. Hope this helps.

BTW, if the kit is less than 400 new (ie the 85 dollar ebay special) its probably shit.

Our lights use the same bulb for both high and low beams. In an HID kit, this can only be replicated with Bi-Xenon.

I only paid $150 for my hid kit. I had it in since July and it worked perfect ever since.

Doesn't seem like shit to me.

yeah def the hi/low kit assuming thats the bi-xenon one, and for optimal light output (ie factory hid's) and a non ricey look, the 4300k bulb is your best bet, and you'll get the most light output, the higher the K the more purple the light will eventual get and the less light you'll get, and the more you'll attract cops and piss people off lol.
