The HID usually call for a separate power supply for the ballasts and use the existing headlight circuit only to trigger the power on. I ran the ballast power cable to my EC expansion fuse panel. This panel also supplies heated gear, accessory outlets, air horn and some LED lights. The panel was set up with a relay fired from the accessory terminal on the stock fuse block so off when key is off. I added a manual switch to this accessory lead; very little amperage draw. I check that it's off before starting and then turn it on once she fires up. Less HID arcs as well as less load on start.
I thought about the relay on oil pressure, or some other auto trigger but decided to keep it simple.
