Reverttheclown hit most of the points. The higher the wattage, the more the color of the HID is washed out. Because of this, you will want to get 55w 6000k HID H9 for the high headlights.

Buy:
55w 6000k H9 HID (High)
35w 5000k H11 HID (Low)
35w 5000k H9 HID (Fogs)

Also, you use an allen wrench to aim the headlights, not a phillip screwdriver.

if i like the aiming of my current headlights do i need to change it for HIDs?
It's possible. You definitely want to be courteous towards other drivers by not blinding them which could be danger for you and them if they cannot see or become distracted.

The reason I say this is because your bulbs may be aimed high, but are not bright enough to blind yet if you put HID's in, it could change that. The only real way is to put them in and test them. At night, shine your lights down the road and look towards the car from down the street.

One quick thing can someone explain what the dust cap is? Is it something if i dont get a good seal around the hole that I drill that can cause condensation in my headlight? Thanks i jus want to make sure that I do it right
The dust cap is the plastic cover on the back of the headlight assembly that you twist to get off. It's inconclusive about whether a leak in it can cause condensation, but I doubt it. The HID's come with a black rubber groment that does a good job sealing the hole that you make in the dust cap. If you want to do a better job, then get some silicone and use it to form an airtight barrier between the groment and hole you create in the dust cap.
