bulbs you can pretty much get anywhere, but for ballasts you could order the oem ones, or get an aftermarket ballasts, but you would have to worry about it throwing errors, but you could get an error canceler for that.

Before we can tell you which bulbs and ballasts to get, we need to know if he is selling you OEM euro xenon housings or are they aftermarket ones?

OEM euro xenon housings will require a D1S bulb and I'm not sure about the ballast.

But based on the fact that he says "bulb AND ballast" it makes me think you are buying Depo Projector90s, which are aftermarket headlamp housings. In that case you will need H7 HID bulbs and the appropriate ballast. Search up on Google, there are many HID kits for almost any bulb type.
