    I just have the lower DRLs installed. I have not talked to the dealer yet about the factory HIDs yet.

    If you don't mind, could you give a brief description of the installation process, and most importantly the wiring process. Really want to do this but I'm unsure about the wiring, thanks.

    I wish I could give you guys answers or help with the install. My dealer kind of owed me a favor so they installed everything (I bought the parts) at no cost. So unfortunately I'm of no help with the install and wiring process.

    I put lower LED's in and hooked them to the parking lights. So they just come on when parking lights are on or the or all lights are on. And that was done through the wheel well. I am interested in cracking open the light housing and putting LED's in them. I'm afraid at the moment to crack them open. I know it can be done. KPE did it with angel eyes.

    Has anyone considered putting actual fog lights in? The factory drl's look nice but I was thinking of maybe a drl and fog in the lower brake duct covers and leaving my upper headlights alone...Also anyone have any clue how I would attach the fog lights to the duct cover?

    Was all the wiring included with the lights? I know you tapped into the parking lights, but did you have to come up with a special harness, wires, etc. Or was everything already included.

    No. All I did was pull back the wires from the parking lights after unplugging them. I checked the wires on what was negative and positive and spliced in. I soldered them. I could have just used a wire connector but solder is better. Then wrapped with elec tape. I have led's also on my front lights that are also spliced in the same patch from parking lights. Kind of a V shaped look. I posted before in a thread what they look like. To me this car is easy to wire things up. So far anyway.

    Now I'm confused with this. Is there regular fog lights that you can get OEM? I have never seen these on an ATS.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cadillac-ATS...f33897&vxp=mtr

    I don't think so. Its probably mislabeled but I don't recognize what it is.
