Spyder Auto pick your light you want then search for the part numbers on ebay or amazon. they are pricey but you get what you pay for. installation of the halo's is actually pretty straight forward and easy. i even used spade terminals on my connectors to make the headlights pretty easy to pull after installation. just shrink wrap the connections to keep water out.
Absolutely, positively, 100% agree with @Joes74challenger! I tried 2 different sets of aftermarket headlights and almost gave up (due to fitment and condendation/water-leak issues) until I tried a set of Spyder headlights. You'll pay a little more for the Spyder headlights, but they are much better than any of the no-name "cheap" aftermarket headlights. But even Spyder is not up to OEM quality. Some people still report clear-coat issues with Spyder headlights. Personally, I've a a set of Spyder CCFL Halo headlights on my 2012 for years now and haven't had ANY issues whatsoever. No clearcoat issues - no condensation issues - not even a burnt-out bulb. :-)

Here are some pictures of them:
