Yeah, my SharpHID kit and battery harness were completely plug and play - minus cutting little holes in the plastic circles behind the lights for the wires to feed through. My 35W 5000K kit is pure bright white with the slightest hint of blue... I'd say it looks similar to the stock STi HIDs, but with a tad more glare. I've only been flashed twice, but it was on a pitch black dark two lane road, so anything would appear bright after driving through total darkness. You can also adjust the height of the low beam light cutoff with a bolt behind each headlight assembly which helps with that issue.
