relay harness is important, I don't even know why HIDs exist without them.

Also grounding is important, you absolutely need to ground them properly. They are everywhere on the car, depending on your install, you must find the closest point. Just unscrew the existing ground bolt put your grounding wire/washer in and re screw. Preferably make sure the ground screw is free of rust and/or paint.

They look like this:

if you don't ground it, you will eventually damage something.

good luck

ground them to one of the bolts just behind the headlights, on the front quarter panel...look on buyhids.com there are detailed instructions on how to install them.
