Just from checking quickly it seems that V-LEDs has started selling kits again. This is what I used:
9006 Premium HID System - 9006 - HID Systems - HID
I selected the 5000k option, and added the relay harness and the in-line CAN-BUS fix option since our cars do use CAN-BUS. This kit is $200, but you can see it's a very high quality and smart kit.
Also, just to be clear, I do not work for V-LEDs, I am just a guy who was very happy with this kit in my previous 300.
My 300S has factory HIDs so I am no longer messing around with lights.
Oh, and DDM tuning also makes great kits, too. And they include a lifetime warranty.
DDM Tuning 35W and 55W HID Kits
But, I've had to use the warranty once to get a ballast replaced. Other than that, they worked well in my 2008 Tahoe.
One rule of thumb - don't buy your kit from eBay. Lol. I see you have a 2013 Luxury Edition - PLEASE install a high quality kit, that car deserves it.
