What kind of flickering issues are you talking about?

I should receive my HID's in the mail soon. I ordered 55w 5000K heads and 35w 5000K fogs. Might get the high beams later if it seems worth it. Does anyone have any advice as to where to mount the balast's and what to use for the install?

When you install projectors in the fogs, do the shops sell the projectors with the kit? Do you need to ship off the fog housing for retro fitting?

Thanks

Don't put HIDs in your high-beams, you will lose flash-to-pass due to the HID start up times. The projects are bi, when you turn on your bright lights, the projector has a shutter that opens. Most of your light for high beams comes from the projector. Compare your flash-to-pass to your brights on a dark road and you will see the difference.

Unless you are going for a look or style, putting HIDs in the fog lamps isn't going to add much functionality (except to blind on-coming traffic). If you must, go with a lower Kelvin temperature, this will cut through the fog better than higher Kelvin temperatures.

Yah it drives me nuts too. Lazy and uninformed consumers buy an advertised DOT compliant HID bulb and install it in a composite housing engineered for halogen lighting only. The retailer doesn't bother to tell the lazy and uninformed consumer that in order to make the DOT compliant part street legal, they would have to swap the halogen lighting engineered housing for a DOT HID engineered housing. AKA a projector lens. I guess that info won't mean much until the LEO's also get informed and start hammering these uninformed lighting upgrade enthusiasts.........
