Were there any instructions with the kit? If it really is a 'plug in' kit then I would assume that you need to mount the ballast(s) somewhere, unplug the existing cable from the headlamp bulb and connect it to the ballast. Then replace the bulb with the HID bulb and connect the ballast to it.

I'm not a fan of aftermarket HIDs. When a car has HID from the factory, it is specifically designed for HID and complies to all the legal requirements. Fitting aftermarket HID will put you the wrong side of the legal requirements and there is a high likelihood that you will end up dazzling oncoming vehicles.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
