So I purchased sum hids for the 07 sts lows and fogs,
Installed the lows (they loook grrrreat):D
Then proceeded to install the fogs which were not too hard
Now my question is this
on the pass side the bulb shoots out like a rainbowish color and the drivers
Side all color match (8K)
And when I park the car in front of the garage door annd turn on the fogs
The light beam is all weird hard to xplain but shouldn't the beam pattern be
The same as the lows, since they're all projectorD housings???
I tried turning the bulbs around in the housing but its the same effect :/
Anyone expierence any issues with the fog light upgrade?
Anyone in ca close to my location (92585) kan offer me sum assistance?
Thabks in advance for the tips and advice greatly appreciated...
Sorry no piks yet I'm at work typing this up from my phone,will post piks as soon as I can

Even though they are both projector housings Im pretty sure that they both "project" different.

Have you tried adjusting the fogs? Theres a hex key screw on the front of the lens that adjusts them up and down.

Yea I tried adjusting them in the front,
That didn't really help to me the problem seems to be inside the-
Housing cause with the lows after putting in the bulbs and testing them-
They lit up fine like how it should,
These fogs don't shoot out the proper light beam idk if the housings are
Messed up or what its aggravating :/ tmrw ill post up pics

If you change from OEM bulbs, the focus can be wrong. Many members agree.

A reflector has a point at which light will follow a path best suited to the task at hand. A different bulb can put the light source a bit closer to the reflector ar a bit farther away. It may not be much and would then be of little consequence. It may be a lot and then actually give you less light for the job at hand.

An engineer could determine just how much it matters. You could also just try it and see. In the long run, that's the only way you'd know for sure. Just be prepared you might not get what you think you're paying for.
