I have the opportunity to buy a factory Xenon headlight set (assemblies, ballasts,bulbs) for my 2000 Catera. Will I be able use these on my car? need some info ASAP! Thanks everyone!:bouncy:

OK I think I know a little more. On my Catera there is no plug/harness to power the ballast. It is an oval shaped scoket on the left side of the ballast. You can see it in the picture I have attached. Is there a way to wire that plug in? (If so how do I do it?) My other thought is that I could buy just the wires/harness from an aftermarket HID company. Because If I bought one of their "plug and play" kits they would have to account for these missing wires as well. I hope this makes my problem a little clearer!

grab some 9006 plugs for the ballast and connect that to your headlight postive and negative. You also have the option of adding relays in between and connet the power source to a battery to make sure it gets more stable power.

Thanks sesshoumaru562 - why the 9006 wires? I thought the catera used H7/H1 henon bulbs. Although, you probably know more than me. Where would i come across these wires?

Adding a relay? I know very little about wireing and all that but I am willing to learn!

Thanks again, I am new to posting so I may be a little confusing.
