Primers, the other night I went to adjust my beam height and saw something on my "OEM headlights and HIDs (as stated by the seller).

I know aftermarket HID bulb wires and ballast clips when I see them!!!

Will someone enlighten me with a photo of the real set up and components needed?
 
you would not have seen the balast or wires

if it was oem, the OEM balast screws to the bottom of the light.
and the wire is ran up thru the headlight housing.

if you saw any wire or balast its not OEM.

I can post pics tomorrow of a light I have off the car.

its not un heard of to buy aftermarket when the OEM balast is bad. they are not cheap.
but the previous owner may have been LOL.

Haha yeah.. I know they are aftermarket for sure as I've had many an aftermarket kit in past vehicles, even if I did a legitimate projector build. Thanks for getting that picture when you do though.
 
I don't have any pics of the ballast but here is a couple of the housing.
