Looks good, but why the high beams? Curious...
Figured I was doing the lows so why not . And they are the DRL's so it looks better the Halogens

Those look great. Looking to upgrade my ebay HIDs, I like the look of the 8000k.

What relay/harness did you use for the highs???

None of us got em to work correctly
I used a relay harness and these Can-bus ballasts seem alright will have to wait and see

They look cool, yes... but practical no. You lose the ability to flash to pass or flash for what ever reason. Because the HID take a few seconds to warm up. Same goes for the reverse HID's. By the time you actually are done backing out of a driveway or parking spot the lights haven't even warmed up yet and give off a dull useless light. I'm gonna be swapping my HID reverse's out for some high quality LED's.

It still has pass to flash sure it takes a second to warm up but it still flashes fine and the reverse is still brighter then a stock bulb when first on . But to each his own .I like

Fogs are easy they are not on in the BCM or PCM so any Hid kit will work it's a H10 bulb but 9005 or 9006 will fit if you trim a little piece off the base of the bulb . Rears I used a H3C kit and drilled out the stock bulb abd glued the HID bulb in it place then ran a relay harness to the power plug on the rear DR side so it will not blow a fuse . I 2 way taped the ballast to the top of the reverse bulb housing . Anything else just ask .

And there's minimal light output and visibility with LEDs....

So you're taking a huge step backwards...

Ask me how i know

LED's are great for the look but the output sucks

Where'd you put the ballast for the fronts? I'm looking at installing a set I bought on here awhile ago and don't really see the need to take off the front bumper like most.

I was thinking the same thing so when I started I took the rad cover/grill off there is enough room to put them under the bumper cover without taking the bumper off .

Bumper cover comes off very easy! Takes less that 10 minutes. 7 bolts and some plastic rivets. One for each of the lower braces, one each wheel well, and three under the radiator. I believe 8mm, 13mm, and 15mm. Get a plastic rivet run and rivets at harbor freight for like 25 bucks. Makes a very clean install and great weather protection.
