Install is easy you take out your bulb, install the HID bulb, plug the ballast into your cars harness and the HID into the ballast. Mounting options are where ever you can fit the ballast

Your light harness, when you unplug the factory bulb you will plug the wires into the ballast. The ballast will be in-line with the light. It will be like this, you will have to use your imagination a bit:
WIRE HARNESS-BALLAST-HID LIGHT BULB


All 2000+ batteries are under the back seat. You will have to change your headlight fuse to a 30 amp

Fuses are a couple of bucks for an assortment pack at any auto part store. You may have an extra fuse in your fuse blocks. There is one under your hood and under your back seat. You oqwners manual will tell you what each fuse does and which block it is in.

I'm sorry, I should be saying connector instead of harness, my bad

8000K. I like them because it gives a slight tint of blue like newer luxury cars have

I wired my HID harness to the front relay box. The battery has a direct cable (+) to the box and then I picked up a chassis ground on the front right nose clip. The HID harness from DDM picks up the "on" command from the headlight harness. The harness comes with its own fuse, and because you are powering the ballast from the battery, you don't need to up your headlight fuse.
