If I make make one suggestion, I would like to recommend a different projector. I certainly can't deny that the Q45 projectors are visually quite stunning. They are literally "one-of-a-kind." However, Infiniti sacrificed a lot of performance for the appearance. And they're extremely rare, so of course, the price is high (currently $350 through TRS). For that kind of money, I would get the LS460, and enquire if they can provide the solenoid retrofit to make it easier to install. Around the same amount of money, and you get a cool shroud that you can put a LED ring in for a really unique look

And for the kit, go with the Morimoto Three5 or the Deno OEM ballast, and the Osram CBI D2S bulb. LS460 bixenon+CBI=better than any Factory BMW HID setup ever, and better than 99% of what's on the road right now.
that's pretty creative looking... though, i can get P7 Q45's for $200. The ballast and bulbs are a pretty penny though... $185 for the bulbs and $165 for the ballast(s)? WOW...
