    yep they sure did,you have to chop off the rubber bit to seperate the wires that you need.

    Sorry to sound a bit thick,but i only asked because the clown who fitted mine ruined the rubber seal behind the lights by removing the grommit and cut the seal instead and so i was thinking of getting new hid bulbs and rubber seals and getting them fitted using the grommit thats supplied with the bulbs..do these bulbs fit any hid kit or are they different bulbs for different kits?

    yep mate as long as you order the correct wattage and bulb type, i used silicone to reseal the wires that go through the rubber cap on the rear of the headlight
