Default Got my HIDs installed

So today I got my 3000k fog lights installed.
got the 35watt slim ballasts from DDM. So far I like them more than stock.
Install was a lot easier than I expected.
Headlights are next.

Before


After (I know it's night, ill get a day one tomorrow)

Thank you. I'm glad I did the mod so my headlights do not have to be on for the fog lights to come on.

Pretty easy, took about 15 min for me, just had to change where the fog lights get their power from, so i switched it to the parking lamps instead of the low beams.

Here are some more pics of the HIDs
During the day (overcast out though)


Right in the beam of them


And the real comparison between the hid and stock bulb

I heard about that with the 3000k bulbs, so I'm looking forward to all the snow we are supposed to get in washington this year.

I think im going to go with 6k or 8k, haven't made up my mind up about it yet. I like the blueish look, but don't really want to attract cops more.
