I could do the same. Next time I'm at work.

It's amazing how ' yellow ' the stock fog lights look compared to HID's. So John, I hope you're satisfied with this kit other than the crappy wiring harness. Is light output as good as I said?

And don't forget the crappy instructions, LOL, No I love them lets just say I grinned very hard for a while, Over headlights.

The light output is 100% what you said. the photos do not do it justice.

As for the high beams, Yes far brighter even at a still 35 watt because the beam is re-aimed it is very bright. Although would have been nice to see a 55watt high beam but still. They are bright enough.

I just thought about this, but when it switches from hi to low does it shuft off the lower beam and then ignite the top one? cause that means it will have to warm itself back up swapping from hi/lo

That is correct Cody. It only takes a few seconds to warm up anyhow.

one thing I noticed is the high beam seams a little high up and the lows are down well a little low, So I'm thinking if I turn the bulb just slightly it may bring the two closer together..


But man oh man that high beam is BRIGHT

Agreed. I think mine are slightly angled now, but I may do the same thing you're thinking.

Where did y'all put the ballasts? I'm tryin to figure it out, but some suggestions would be appreciated!

Oh, I'm installing them right now.

And one other question, I can't figure it out from the instructions, but which one is high, red or white?

Got them in. I installed them like they came out of the box, but I'm not too happy with the beam pattern. Gonna take a bit of tweaking to get it just right. Time for some dremmeling!

I can't decide. I have yellowish halogens in the foglights now and I just wish they were brighter. I'm considering 3000k fogs, but I still haven't decided. I like light output, so I might go with another 6000k. Who knows...

I'm a little confused, they have a 4 bulb set up and a 2 bulb set up. The one you posted is a 4 bulb... where does the other bulb mount? Or is it 2 bulbs in one filament?

I'm debating getting these, I really want to keep my high beams.

It has to hid bulbs on one socket. Give me a few mins and i'll get you a pic.
