Re: hid in fog lights

the housings melt because they're ****ty v.1 ebay replica jdm fogs, NOT because of the HIDS if you have leigit jdm fogs or oem usdm fogs they WILL NOT melt. if you dont go oem buy some v.2 replica jdm fogs. you can tell they're v.2 if the kit comes with a dash piece for all the switches, and if the fog housing has a reflector/glare guard. the reason the v.2 will not melt is beacause the housing is made of........you guessed it. metal

Ding ding ding! Great post. IIRC the v.2 are rated for 55w bulbs, so if it were me, I'd be paranoid and get a 35w hid kit. But thats just me.

Re: hid in fog lights

Do H3 bulbs fit right into v.2 fogs? because v.2's use h3c's i believe? Do i have to convert them?

Re: hid in fog lights

Do I need to buy a relay harness to run HID's in my v.2 fogs? Or can I just hook them straight up to the harness that came with the fogs?

Re: hid in fog lights

My harness that came with the fogs had a relay already in it. But if yours doesn't, then it would probably be a good idea to get one.

Re: hid in fog lights

Yeah mine has 12V relay in it. So your HID's work with the stock wiring?

Yeah, no problems at all. I'm running 35 watt 8000K HID's, been just fine for about a month now.

Re: hid in fog lights

If you haven't already found how to convert H3C to H3 here you go
Lexus LS400: How to Convert H3 Bulbs into H3C Bulbs
Pretty simple and easy. Even though it's for a Lexus it's the same thing for Preludes.
And yes USDM fogs can handle HID's

Re: hid in fog lights

^yes. I have DDM Tuning and no problems at all now for 7 months. Also the lifetime warrenty makes me sleep better at night...lol. Just make sure to follow the h3c to h3 conversion and just crimp together a ground wire that plugs up into the black wire. 35 watt deeper yellow 55 watt brighter yellow.
