    You can find them on Amazon, eBay and many other car shops online or local.

    thanks!

    found one for 62 plus 5 bucks shipping on ebay.

    so to clarify, the fogs don't need the whole ballast and relay harness like the headlights?

    The fogs won't be HID - they will remain halogen. I know some people love the HID in the fogs but for a yellow look I like the halogens. Easier to swap and cheaper - plus a better yellow color.

    cdog...just a FYI. I tried opening your blog, but was unable to (it might just be me... not the system), but I notified the site administrator anyway.

    also, in terms of harness, i am suppose to get the standalone can bus one instead of the heavy duty relay?

    would someone mind explaining that piece to me please? sorry i'm a total newbie to this lol

    Aaaahhhh...it must be my OCD !!!! The HID ground shadow almost put me back into therapy !

    what do you guys think of this? having a tough time deciding between the morimoto and this

    http://www.kbcarstuff.com/Xtreme-Digital-HID-Kits-p/xt-hid.htm


    it's about 40 bucks cheaper for me to get the xtreme kit. the xtreme kit from kbcarstuff comes with a relay harness but theres no option to change that to a stand alone can-bus like the morimoto kit from TRS.

    the xtreme kit also has 2 years less warranty than the morimoto.

    I am totally with you. I got around to installing my Morimoto kit today, and for anyone that's not a believer, I'm adding a picture below. The bulb on the passenger side is stock and the one on the right is the XB35 H11 kit from TRS. It wasn't cheap, but it was totally worth it now that I can see the finished results.
