Great headlights, but why hid in fog lights? I bet they are blinding the **** out of people. Especially when the roads are wet.

If you want to increase visibility you are better off leaving them off. HID in fog lights will put too much light on the foreground and make it difficult for your eyes to focus in the distance. Your fog lights looks pretty big, and would probably make them good candidates for a Ford Fusion fog light retrofit. Put 3000k bulbs in there and use them in poor weather.

E2E, thanks!


billm0066,
Yup, that's why I only used 35W kits and it's aimed a little low. Without the fogs, the cutoff is so crisp there's no light for the road signs above. I've come across @$$holes here that replace both low beam, high beam and fogs with 6000K (or higher) HIDs all in reflector housings and turn them all on at the same time. On well lit roads! Talk about glare! Makes me want to get down and smash all his lights with a bat.

Here's a couple pics I took just a while ago. unfortunately, it rained again.

I have installed about 6 sets of DDM Tuning HID's, but the quality has gone downhill. I have switched to VVME. Much better price, faster shipping, and quality parts.
