Re: HID headlights and HID fogs

ddmtuning.com you have to go to the left side of the screen and click hid and lighting. I would suggest getting the harness for an extra 20 bucks for each set of lights so your headlights don't flicker or go out when the fogs go on.

Re: HID headlights and HID fogs

alright thanks guys. and tblake, do the high beams seem better than your stock halogen high beams? tilting the bulbs seems too simple ha.

Re: HID headlights and HID fogs

No it actually works pretty good.... Not much else you can do unless you want HID low beams and regular incondescant high beams. Or else buy dual HID's which will have 2 ballasts per side and two seperate HID bulbs (gets messy).

Re: HID headlights and HID fogs

Problem with the two different bulbs for highs and lows is that the HID's take a few seconds to fully turn on, so as you switch from high to low, HID's will come on but not be completly bright for a few seconds. Another advantage of just tilting the bulb, is its always on and going from high to low beam will not take a few seconds for full illumination.
