Are there any HID kits out there in which I would not have to remove the reflector inside the fog light housing? I am becoming fed up with halogens and want to possibly upgrade to HIDs in my fogs but don't want to remove the reflector ring or retrofit projectors. Any of the kits have shorter bulbs or are there any bulbs out that that will work with the kits that are shorter? I am looking for a 3000K bulb also.

From what I understand, most of the guys that had to pull out the reflector are the guys with the round fog lights (pre 2007 I believe).

In the rectangle fogs, the shield is a wrap around cylinder wiith an open front. The older round fogs have a shield that sits infront preventing the bulb to be fully inserted.

I can get you a bulb that will be shorter and not hit the reflector, but the issue is that it has a different base and will not be plug and play for securing it. You are looking at a situation of deciding which is the lesser evil...

I've got an 04 hatch and didn't have a problem getting my 3000K hid's in at all. I did eventually remove the reflector bowl for shits and giggles, but it isn't somthing I would do again if I didn't need to. If you do remove it, just be sure to throw some yellow Lamin-X on it to dim it out a little bit. Mine are aimed up all the way with no one flashing me, and thats on top of having my 35w 6000K HID's in the lows.
