Question HID headlights in non-HID equipped car?

If I buy the OEM HID headlight assembly, is it direct plug and play with my 2009 Sport which does NOT have HIDs?

Would quite like to upgrade the lights on my car, but not sure if it'll fit? Don't want to use aftermarket HID conversion as I know those will probably blind oncoming cars.

Thanks

You'll also need the supporting electronics (ballasts/igniters).

OK yes of course. But it will be plug and play?

Also, does anyone know the part numbers for the ballasts and igniters? I can only seem to find a "hid control module"?
