HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

I just bought these: 3000K Yellow H3 35W Foglight Xenon HID Conversion Kit: eBay Motors (item 190466087728 end time Nov-13-10 09:14:01 PST)

In short: 35W 3000K H3 Fog Light conversion kit.
I have JDM fogs/driving lights (the popular ones). Except, they are the V2 replicas, which is fine because the housing is still metal. I'm just wondering if this will plug-n-play, like my 8000K Headlight HIDs...If anyone has V2's with HIDs; PLEASE CHIME IN. I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of time custom-wiring HIDs for fog lights. Lol.

Re: HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

I have original JDM fogs, with a 4300k HID kit in them, and everything was pretty easy to hook up. I advise getting a PnP wiring harness to be safe, so you don't fry anything.

Re: HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

I've got a relay harness...How much do you, "recommend" I use it? I don't like my engine bay with a bunch of wires going every which way. I'd rather keep it clean looking with just the ballasts. Is it guaranteed to fry a fuse without a relay/PnP harness?

use the relay harness, if you do it properly it will entirely replace the exterior foglight wiring leaving no extra wiring except a relay

Re: HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

Ok, so my stuff came. I got everything pre-wired so that when I find the time I can just put it in my car. I'm using a relay harness, and I ordered one for my low-beams too. THE QUESTION: My low-beams will wire to the relay harness simply, because the OEM wire harness doesn't use spade connectors (it's a plug, and the relay harness uses spade connectors, which slide into the "plug"). BUT, my replica V2 fog light wiring harness uses SPADE connectors, which is confusing...Should I just electrical tape my fog's spade connectors together with my relay harness spade connectors? Do I have to use my soldering gun (I'd rather not)? Alternately, I can ditch the relay harness for my fogs, and just use the plug-n-play method (which works perfectly btw). I would prefer both sets of relay harnesses though...The HIDs will light-up instantly, and they won't **** up my car's wiring harness.

Re: HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

the low beam relay harness will work perfectly fine. As for the spade connectors, you can simply add more onto the relay harness so that they'll connect directly to your fogs, or you can just do some splicing and connecting, then tape it all up. This pic will probably help you out

Re: HID Fog Lights Question. PLEASE READ! :)

I know how to connect the relay harnesses, it's just that the spade's don't connect to spade's...I guess I'll just clip off the the spade ends, and solder the wires?
