Hey guys I've been reading and debating on HIDs and what I've read is I can get 35 watt 5000k h11 bulbs for low beams and will not need a harness. I just wanted someone to clarify this because I just placed the order and questioning myself because all I bought were the bulbs...hopefully that's all I need, just the plug and play bulbs
Thanks guys

you need a ballast as well as the bulbs......

You should have bought a HID kit, not just the bulbs unless you already have the ballast.

I was reading on the site that you didn't need the ballast for the 35 watt

Not unless some new technology came out with those bulbs you for sure need ballasts with your bulbs. Those bulbs you ordered are only made to connect to a ballast.

And also you will need to drill into your dust cap to do this install.

You can get away without the wire harness and go with the plug and play set-up but that does include a set of ballasts. HID lights won't work without the ballasts.
