I have a very nice fog light HID kit for sale in the classifieds. It is barely used. It is plug and play. Very easy install, should take 30min tops. Will ship it anywhere in the US for $160. Kit cost me $225 plus shipping.

Alot here have been running HID's in the fogs.

Im getting the idea though, that you mean projector HID's...Are you talking about retrofitting a projector into the fog housing?

I have no idea what you're talking about it... What do you mean not plug and play? If you're going to put HIDs into the fog lights, no matter what you use, you're going to need a ballast.

He has a complete aftermarket set of fog hid's. that he wants to retrofit into the CTS's housing. By removing supplied brackets(his fogs) and then installing(by hackin away at the CTS's housin) to get his hid fix.

You need to be more specific. I doubt anyone has done this. Good luck.

guys he's trying to make a set of XLR hids fit his fogs on his CTS. He's asking if anyone has ever either done this before or has used another set of OEM hids from a car and installed them in their CTS. He's not using an upgrade kit. I'm tanked and I can figure it out lol. To the OP, I have no advice to give sorry.
