from my experience, if it comes from the same... brand, then you can just get the bulb. if it's 2 different brands (one brand of bulb, then another brand of ballast) then you're results will either not work,
not be the color you want,
work great then pop goes the bulb or
D (very low chance) it works and you have no issues ever.

hope that helps.

Most cheap aftermarket universal HID kits are manufactured in the same way. Bulbs are fairly interchangeable.

I think you should skip the 10k, though, and stick with 8k or go lower. The higher color will result in less light output.

and the higher chance of being flicked. i know HID's themselves are illegal to have UNLESS their DOT approved. but color ( in all honesty anything except 6k) you COULD get a ticket for. Trans 5 code for WI.

The trouble I've seen /encountered is a different brand can have different plugs/connectors you might have to cut the old ones off the old bulbs and splice them onto the new bulbs
