Ordered HID Fogs
I just ordered a set of 55w 3000k yellow HID's for my fogs. I did some looking around and decided on the 55w kit. But a kid I know says that was a bad choice, now iv never installed HID's but I am failing to understand why he said that. I can still change the order to 35w if needed but can someone elaborate?

55w are not going to last long, change to 35w

Re: Ordered HID Fogs
if a 55w bulb and ballast are both used why wouldnt it last as long? its the quality of the kit that matters. if you get a crap ddm kit then thats why. you get $25 worth of HIDs. all HID kits should be OEM or OEM equivalent.

he may have suggested its a bad idea because of the amount of glare produced by our fogs OR that they have a strong chance of melting the housings. again, the heat is determined a great deal by the quality of the bulb. an OEM or high quality bulb run a lot cooler than a cheaper kit. fogs are fine with 35s but if you have a 55w kit, use it! theyre awesome if you aim them to be driving lights :D
