I can recommend the Morimoto H7 kit (in 5000k if you want the whitest light without hinting toward blue) from The Retrofit Source. Very high quality components, great warranty, and even better customer service. If you don't want the relay harness, you can buy the parts separately, too.

Excellent quality, and low price. They have been in for over 2 years and 50K miles.

The smart has separate high and low beam bulbs, so no issues with the high beams.

I also went with the 5k
