The H7R bulbs are hard to come by. I have only found them available over in Asia, nothing here in the US. You will need the H7R bulbs and ballasts. Standard stuff when ordering an HID Kit, as they are all basically the same. My car did not require any coding and so far has worked fine. I am using a basic kit, not anything high end as I just wanted to try it first to see if the HID set up works well with the reflector type of headlight. I will likely upgrade later to a high end ballast for peace of mind that they wont fail down the line
