Okay, so my fog lights just arrived, but I delayed installing cause I was already thinking of buying Angel Eyes so why take the bumper and headlights of install fogs, and put back on, w8 1 week and do the same with Angel Eyes ;)

So My questions are the following

1. Does anybody know of a "How To: Fog Light Install" guide? already tried search ;/, and if there is none, could anybody be a sweetheart and make one, think it might help people

2. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HID-...tegoryZ36476QQihZ011QQitemZ320083315195QQrdZ1
Is that a good xenon kit ? and worth the Price, I'm considering the 6000k

3. Wouldn't it be much hotter if I had 6000k Fog Light Bulbs if I bought the Xenon Kit?


Most of all I need the first answer, the rest is just opinions ;)


EDIT-

One more question, doesn't this Fog Kit
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/03-0...020QQitemZ300083087875QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

While I can't help you on the fog lights, I can help you with that "kit" on ebay. Don't do it. They say "we recommand 6000k white color because it is the brightest)". Uhm, 4300k is pure white, certainly not 6000k. While 6000k is nice for looks, it is certainly not the brightest. Second, the "no hassle" 1.7 year warranty. 19 months on the ballast, 13 months on the bulb. Wow, who needs lifetime when you got odd months to count.
You are better off bitting the bullet, paying more, and buying from Oliver or another sponser on here (Euro designs is quality as well). Apexcone kits are excellent, lifetime warranty is worth the price alone. Not to mention the "quality" ballast you'd likely get from that ebayer would likely sizzle your stock connection in no time. I wouldn't take that chance.

To answer your question:
1. There are so many OEM fog kits out there that they look all the same but the wiring would be different. The wire colours of my fogs are different from the ones in the how-to. So you pretty much have to figure it out yourself.

2. Are those eBay kit good? I don't know but I recently installed a pair of eBay HID kits for my friend's corolla. He paid $102 for it and it works like a charm so far. I also bought a pair of HID bulbs from the same seller for $80s and they work so far, too.

3. To give you an idea how hot it gets...this is my setup
Low beam - Helios Ballast + Prolumen Bulbs
Fogs - Prolumen Ballast + eBay bulbs

Devil2k that looks outstanding! Do you have any other pics?

Here's another one but with one bad ballast. It's the one on the left in the picture (car's right side). That's why the colour of both bulbs don't match and the bad one was flickering a little. Now they're both running Prolumen, they're in the picture shown above (my first pic in this thread).
