You'd be ordering the entire HID kit, because you'll need ballasts to get the HIDs to turn on. If you order just bulbs they won't work.

If I were you I'd order the 35w kit in the color you want (5000k will be brightest), and then buy 2 extra bulbs in that same color as spares.

Ok I ordered them up minus the spare bulbs I can always get those later. I have just enough to get the set.

Looking at the picture it looks like the bulbs have a plastic case around them. Does that need to come off in order for the bulbs to get into the fog light housing? Is it just like the other bulbs to get them to stay in twist and then they will lock into place?

Yeah, take the plastic cover and foam off. That'* shipping protection.

Once you do that they're just like normal bulbs. Don't touch them with your bare hands (I recommend gloves), insert and twist.

If I remember right it takes about a month or so. That site is SWAMPED with orders since they're one of the cheapest HID suppliers around.

Please do not let the slow shipping time sway you, because they do ship the stuff out as fast as they get it.
