you will want HID kits made for your make/model/year so they take advantage of the reflectors/projectors. you'll need a place for each ballast for each lamp.

color temperature (measured in Kelvin) is to your preference (3000K vs 4300K vs 5000K). 4300K is usually the best bet.

wattage will need to match what the stock housing hand handle for heat, the stock bulb will be an indication of that. usually 35 watts.

start by making a list of what bulbs are in there now, and that will drive your vendor search for products.

the CBI bulbs are supposed to be really good:
D2S: Osram Xenarc 66240 CBI - HID Bulbs from The Retrofit Source Inc
and your car should take an H11 harness.

these kits are affordable if you are planning on a DIY custom install
Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit (H1) - Complete Retrofit Kits from The Retrofit Source Inc

i recommend contacting the vendor to discuss compatibility before purchase. i've heard good things about The Retrofit Source.
