    The DDM HID Fog kit (H10) I received did not fit my fog light assembly. The wiring, ballast and bulbs were fine but the plastic clip that mounts on the assembly was too large so not sure what's going on there.

    I've been holding off because I really want the clear fogs over the STS V fogs. Looks like my only option would be to do this myself...not sure I like that option.

    That aside I'm ready anytime to update the lights. Let me know when your ready.

    Re: HID Foglights

    Anyone do the HID Fog Conversion without clearing the lenses? How do they look? Also anyone know what bulb we use for highbeams? (New car to me, no owners manual )

    Re: HID Foglights

    Are those SilverStar bulbs (silver when off, yellow when on) easy to find? I went to Autozone yesterday and couldn't find any. I don't want to order online, cuz I'm going to do all this wed/thurs/fri- days off baby!
