They are probably just bulbs, real HID's will have a ballast, small box and a set of wires that hooks up to your headlights then to the HID bulb, if they dont have all that, then they are not HID's

Cause those are not real HID's. HID systems (not just bulb) are priced well into the 300-500 area. they include HID bulb and a ballast to fire up the bulb.

HID lookalikes are bulbs with a blue coating that reduces the amount of light outputted so you get a cool color. these are guaranteed to last you anywhere from 1month to ....maybe a year if you're lucky.

the purpose of your headlight is not to look cool. it's to light up the road so you can see at night.

$35 is just too cheap. They might say like HID or something that has the word HIDs
