You need a 9007 kit. The kit should come with everything you need except for a relay harness. Some people get away with out a relay harness kit but usually after a while the passenger side will not work properly. As for color wise I would go with 4300k. That is the brightest and anything higher is just for looks. A lost of people run 6000k as its a good mix between color and is still bright. 99% of hid colors are going to put out more lumins than halogen bulbs. Wait for Shane to get on here and see the thread. He can shed more light on this than me. (Pun intended)

^^^^ What he said. Except all the kits I've seen do not need a relay kit. They have a battery wire that powers the ballasts and the exiting headlight circuit is just telling the controller when to turn on and hi/lo.

4,000-5,000k will give you the brightest white. 6,000k is marginally less bright and has a bluer tinge to it. Anything more than 6,000k is bluish purple lame and annoying.

Nothing is going to come with fog lights. They are totally separate. Headlights are 9007. Fog lights are 9145.
