Do I need an HID Wiring Harness for 35W [4th Gen Alti]?

I have a 2008 Altima 2.5S, I plan on getting 6000k 35W H11 HIDs either from DDM Tuning or XenTec (probably not from them, due to people complaining about flickering). Saw some stuff about stock wiring/fuses burning out with HIDs. Will I be fine with the stock wiring harness, or is it recommended to put in the extra cash and get a HID relay wiring harness? Thanks in advance.

edit: No, you don't need one.

You'll be fine with the stock wires!! I've had HID's like that in many previous cars with no problem.

I placed my order for my kits last Thursday. Still no movement on my shipment. Doesn't seem to be moving from China one bit. If I would of known they coming from China. I would of ordered long time ago. I got my fog kit yesterday. Im trying to debate if I want to continue waiting on my hid kits to install fog kit and hid kits all in one day or to do just fog kit now and hids later....

Installed HID's today. Did not have to remove bumper or wheels, just went through wheel well. Looks good:

Would you suggest taken bumper off if I got to install two HID kits? Low and fogs?

You should be fine without taking the bumper off, there was good access to fogs when I was changing through the wheelwell. Of course taking off the bumper would make any light install easier, but I chose not to mess with that.
