Default R53 HID Replacement

I've done some searching but can't seem to locate the direct answer to my question. So I'm looking to replace my factory Xenon low beams with after market 6000K xenons. Can anyone tell me if an aftermarket will connect to the factory ballast just plug and play? Thanks.

You mean, can you use aftermarket bulbs with the stock ballasts?

Yes, as long as they are the correct size.

Awesome Rally! I just wasn't sure if the connectors were the same for factory ballasts and aftermarket.
