Re: 2014 HID in fogs...

Is anyone melting the lamp housings? I melted 2 sets on my 2012 with 35 watt ballasts. Luckily the 2011-2012 housings are very inexpensive.

2014 HID in fogs...

Still confused after reading the previous posts. Is the relay harness AND the CANBUS fix required to run HID's as fog lamps? I have factory Xenon headlights.

The harness has a resistor attached to the factory input wire to the harness.
