Yes. They plug right in, BUT.... I would get the upgraded harnesses they sell along with it too. I've heard of several people frying their wiring harnesses because the lumincs bulbs draw more power.

Stock bulbs are 51 Watt. Luminics are 55W. Even a small 4 watt difference can fry wiring if it's not meant to handle it.

^^ Right. So far I haven't had a problem and I didn't buy the upgraded wiring harness.
Same here.

Not a problem either but I am upgrading to flowlighting HID here soon I have heard and read that the blue version of luminics bulbs are the ones frying so I stayed away from those and got the white ones

True. I think they are "too" blue.

I wouldn't.... they're actually dimmer than OEM bulbs. If you're swapping in Luminics, get the hyper-whites.

thanks for the replies :) so are the ultra-violets legal? how purple are they.
I read that Luminics had to recall Ultra Violets so I'd say no, also I've heard that people have gotten tickets for them. I'd go with the Hyper Whites also.

i haven't upgraded my wiring harness.... i think the person that melted their harness had some other error.... the fuse should have blown instead of the wires melting... thats what fuses are for
