    Just a rule of thumb man, look and see if the bulbs and ballasts are made by a well known company like GE, or phillips.

    yeah, i will have regular headlights with silverstars...

    i only want the HID's in the fogs so that when the weather is bad and i need a boost in lighting its available. My only problem is i can't decide between a 3000k yellowish bulb or a 4300k white bulb...
    I really liked the yellow fogs on my Lexus but i had HID's for headlights so lighting wasn't an issue.

    oh the choices :)

    are fogs are not functional what-so-ever. They are sunk into the bumper and that looses light...they are just for looks.

    HID's in our tiny ass GT fogs are a waste...spend the cash on HID for the headlights

    The light on my fogs increased alot when i put in the clear lense so i have no doubt the HIDs in there will work well.

    if they're more durable than the stock and similar bulbs, i'd grab my card and order a pair now. i hate it when i have one fog out and it looks retarded.

    if they had a high and low beam option for hid's i'd switch to them in a heartbeat, also.

    having just bought new clear housings for the headlights, i'm going to pass because i don't want to be that asshole. lol otherwise i'd get the projectors and do it right. i think i'm just going to get the fogs.

    I cant remember what forum i saw it on but there was a guy who retrofitted an Acura projector(the round guy that looks like an eye) into an sn95 housing. He even had the bi-xenon HIDs, it was like :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :drunk: :drunk: :pimp2: :pimp2: all over. http://www.skafia.com/itr/hid/
    that is the link to the guy who did it in his integra, If/When i get HIDs, this is how i will do it, mainly because i HATE the look of all the projectors on the market. Also, i think its silly to have halogen and HID 'spots', like having HIDs for Highs and halogens for normals. http://www.corral.net/forums/showthread.php?t=809200 there is a link for the guy who did it in a foxbody housing, i cant find the sn95 link for the life of me, oh well. Just some input for those DIY'ers who might have an extra set of headlights laying around. I like the idea of black housing w/ bi-xenon projectors. hehe :rockyou: :rockyou:
