    easy fix man, u need to wet sand them, then come back and use plastic polish from mothers to fix it, its going to take time, but worth saving the money they want for new lights

    This is a mod I'd been waiting for months to actually get started on...

    The 10000k HID low beams cost $250(eBay)
    The 10000k HID H3 fog lights cost $250(eBay)
    The Hella Micro DE lights cost $130(eBay)
    Halo headlights cost $120(eBay)


    1) the low beams kit was a cinch to swap out; 45 minutes, maybe. The ballasts and the ignitors slip in nice and neat underneath the nose cowling, as the last picture shows.

    2) the Hella Micros I had to get because the stock fog lights won't take an H3 bulb. Taking the stock fog lights apart was easy. Modifying the housing to accept the 10000k H3 HID bulbs, installing and then aiming the new Hella housings took a bit of time; about 1.5 hours

    3) the Halo headlights were pretty easy to install. What took the longest was I had to splice the LED halo light into my fog lights. I only wanted the Halo to come on when my fog lights were on. Then there was getting the new headlight housings back into the brackets. This took forever since it's not a complete perfrect fit. The rubber weather striping around the headlights is thicker than the stock units. So...it took some time to get them in there. And then I had to aim them; a couple of hours.


    All in all, it cost me about $800 total, but with what I ended up with, I feel my money was more than well spent. The difference in the lighting is like night and day...and it looks good!

    Nice man, but I actually found HID kits for 894 bulbs so you don't need to change your fogs...

    Well, unfortunately, the only ones I could find were the the ones with the blue tinted bulbs; also they used a filament. Plus, a lot of them ran at a higher voltage than the stock fog light bulbs, and I didn;t want any issues of my wires heating up. In the end, the 10000k kit I went with would be what I will always recommend to anyone why wants to swap out their fog lights.
