Re: People with HID's in headlamps AND fogs

have not gotten projector headlights yet so no HID's in the headlights but here is the placement for my fog light ballasts....this is the driver side and is identical to the passenger side.

Re: People with HID's in headlamps AND fogs



I personally use tape similar to double sided tape, but it has adhesive on one side and velcro on the other, that pretty much allows you to mount the ballast where ever you want. Finding random holes to mount the ballast to can be impossible sometimes.

Man, no you won't. I do however agree with said posers that put 45000k on a Hyundai accent. Sorry Elliot, got no prelude to demonstrate. I do hover use 3m Velcro tape, the 2+ inches wide to mount the ballasts. Or Tie-wrap the ballast to some wires or hoses.

To save you guys some trouble, if you buy the kits where you can open the ballast, take a small tube of RTV all weather silicone and make a seal. The HID companies cheap out nowadays.

Re: People with HID's in headlamps AND fogs

I have the headlight ballasts tucked under the headlights while the ballasts for the fogs are strapped to the side walls of the bumper support beam!!

It's not posing if I angle them down and still don't care if I piss people off.
I like my DEPOs how they are and don't want projectors in them but I do need more light output so simple solution is...

Yup. Did the same. Put some 6k's in my JDM one pieces. Had my gf drive against me to make sure it was okay until I can afford money for tsx projectors :)

Guilty When I first installed them I wasn't sure if I had angled them down enough so I drove it around for a few nights to see if it would be problematic or not. I had one guy screaming and cursing at me because I guess my lights were melting his face or something. I went ahead and blocked him from being able to merge over so that he ended up missing his exit. Saved him the trouble of having to deal with my lights for the rest of his drive home (which would surely take at least an extra 15 minutes in traffic).

I use 35W 8000K HID in my depo heads and 55W 3000K HID in my fogs covered with yellow Lamin-X!

I upped the Watts in my fogs bc it wont blind ppl that low and it helps to shine the ground as well as using the 35W in the depos to not blind ppl as mentioned above.

In the link it's my fogs with 55W 3000K.

JDM fogs
