HID Kits Info/Install
 
OK...now I have the modding bug to the fullest...I can't stop. I want to get HID's lows/fogs. Please post your model/type/part#/install/experience for those of you with aftermarket HID's. I have already decided I will go with 5K OR 6K lows/fogs and will prolly get a set of 3K bulbs for the fogs (for you Nate)!

I am also a little slow...I have the low-end stock headlights (the ones that cover the bulb with the chrome piece thingy like the tech term?) How will these work with my set-up? Do I remove the chrome bulb cover? I have been reading about the "projector" vs "other" and do not know which one I have (I haven't felt this dumb in a while) I am pretty sure I do not have projectors based on what I have read, so I think I am an "other"...

Is this the kit I should get??? What is the difference between Volt/ExtremHID/Xenondepot other than price????? Also, I cannot find our fogs (9055 per application guide)...please opost link for fog HID kits...Thanks for the help guys!

Everything stays the same. All you have to do is change the bulb and mount the ballst and relays. and plug everything in. Fogs took me 15 min. Lows took about an hour cause I didn't have any instructions and I'm OCD with how things are wired and mounted. LOL I have the Xentec kit. 6k lows, 3k/5k fog bulbs.

Thanks Nate. Where did you get your Xentec kit? Also what is the warranty? Price? Looks Like I will need to spend $3-400 on the fogs and lows?

Thanks Irf! So is this new slim ballast a better design? And $100 seems like a great price...does Tony sell the fogs as well?

Also, can anyone post a link or pics on the install...or just tell me if there is any splicing required. It appears that it is a plug and play harness and all you need to do is secure the ballasts...

yeah they are slimmer and easier to install. i will be trying them out this weekend so ill post up my review... they are literally plug and play!!! sooo easy to do...

there are a few threads about the install. the main thing is that you need a relay for the lows and possibly for the fogs(i didn't need a relay with the fogs on my 08)

you also have to make sure you have a good ground for the relay! really easy to install though... yes he does sell fogs as well. i also ordered the 3k bulbs which give a nice yellow glow!

Re: HID Kits Info/Install
 
Don't the kits come with a relay? And why did the fogs not require a relay? And the ground you are referring to is for the ballast? Im confused so I apologize for asking so many questions...I just did a stereo install and this seems more difficult to understand b/c it is all new to me!!!

I don't know if it makes any difference, but I plan on buying the XenonDepot kit, it comes with a relay and its the extreme kit, 199.99 tho. Sounds like a great kit from what the guys on here tell me

Re: HID Kits Info/Install
 
I don't think 08 needs relays for fogs. Tony does have good prices and warrantys. From what I hear Xenon depot has the best top of the line kits. I don't what your budget is but they're more $$$ but you get what you pay for. I'm not trying to take away from Tony by any means. He has a great product. Mine works perfect from day one and no issues.

Re: HID Kits Info/Install
 
I know I like that one too...but for half the price it doesn't make sense if others have the BajaHID kits and are happy with them! Irf is going to install these over the weekend and hopefully have great news for JG!

yeah dude im sure they will be great. smaller ballasts will be easier to install as well... i will take pics installing my ballasts so you can see how easy it is to install these kits!
