First off, you're going to need an aftermarket housing.
You can ebay some, but you probably won't be happy with how they point light.
Your best bet is to get a set of Hella H4 housings.

Beyond that, there's a million kinds of HID kits available.
I'm currently talking to a GA-based company that sells good kits into becoming a vendor here.

They have kits ranging from $39 to $95.

They have a $55 kit that includes the ballasts, bulbs and wires, and comes with a 2 year warranty.
Their $75 super slim kit comes with a 3 year warranty.
And their $99 OEM slim kit comes with a lifetime warranty.

I have their $99 kit and Hella E-code H4 housings, and that ran me a little over $200.

The company's called Dynamic Sounds, and they're based in Norcross, GA. Give Jason a call at 678-622-7144 and tell him what you're looking for and he'll hook you up. He sells roughly 700 HID kits a week, and definitely stands by his product.

I got mine through DDM Tuning a while back and paired them with Autopal housings from eBay.

@Kook; as long as thier aligned properly you'll never notice it oncoming. I had a few issues with people flashing thier lights at me (almost every other car) until I realized mine were waaayyy off from where they needed to be. Now that I corrected it there isn't a problem.

Yea, mine were cross-eyed to the point the right was shining all the way into the oncoming lanes and the left was way off the shoulder.

Would this be a good kit to start with http://cgi.ebay.ca/HID-1982-1993-TOYOTA-CELICA-PRO-HEADLIGHT-BLK-1991-1992-/320605450052?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Make%3AToyota|Model%3ACelica|Year%3A1992&hash=item4aa592ef44 ? and later buy better lights or buy different housing and buy lights separtly

No, it's a horrible start. Just buy the parts you actually need/want. Get the Hella or Autopal E Code housings and a decent H4 HID setup, either from DDM or someone of similar repute.
