The volt kits will work on the fogs...but.....(i know...always a but) a few members had to have a relays on the fogs...but....most didnt.
Whats d1s bulbs?

Im going to just grab the volt kit then, if they are good quality and from the chart they seem to be the same as the xtreme kit minus the relay harness in difference. I did notice my drivers HID flicker last night once, but havent noticed ever since I spliced in another grounding wire off the existing which seemed to fix it. I just dont have the time, or patience to try to figure why it was flickering in the first place. i still have my dual turn LEDs that arent working properly, my car interior is ripped apart right now while im doing my stereo still, have my eibachs downstairs trying to figure how I can get my spring compressor to work on them, my tail LEDs still arent working right blowing the brake fuse. I have too many things going on, and this rain is not helping me.

Re: HIDs early failure/rant

so no email back from mobilehid, no surprise there.. which pisses me off more than anything. so i guess ill see what happens tonight if it lights up or not and ill just have to put a spare back in there until a new one shows up. xenondepot doesn't look like the sell replacement bulbs, just kits, so ill have to find some place else to get them from

I've had good responses with xenon depot, im sure they would sell you some bulbs if you tell em your from here. If they dont, post it everywhere how they refuse to take your money. lol. When I first installed mine xtreme kit had some trouble, and they got right back to me all the time. def recommend buying from them.

Oh, and be sure to write a nice thread if that mobilehid doesnt get back to you, to warn everyone that they suck.

Re: HIDs early failure/rant

you need to look better...xenondepot sells all kinds of bulbs. i got my 6000k d1s bulbs form there and my wifes 6000K d4s bulbs from there. I think you have a ballast problem or a grounding problem

Re: HIDs early failure/rant

well i swapped out the purple bulb with my older 5000k bulb and 2 things. 1st is that the old bulb wont fit in the new housing like i can push it in but cant turn it, it just fits snugly in the opening, strange, and second is that it lights up the right color (for 5000k) so i kinda ruled out the ballast, but tomorrow ill might swap the ballasts and see if it changes the other bulb so thats why i dont think its that but ill definitely check it.

and scott you were right, the do sell bulbs individualy, finding them was the trick, i tried a search and all i get was the kits.. here is a link to the bulbs if anyone wants it
