Remember to disconnect the negative side of the battery before working inside the fuse-box.
If the HID kit comes with it's own fuse/es, splice into the fat red wire inside the fuse-box. If there are no fuses with the HID kit then it's best to find the headlamp fuse and connect to the fused side of the wiring.
EDIT: You will also probably want to remove the 'lamp out' warning light on the instrument cluster as this will illuminate when you switch on the headlamps.
If yours is a LHD car there's no need to remove the cluster, just drop the panel below (four screws) and twist out the warning light and remove the bulb.
