Yup paint chip galore. I am trying to save up a collection of paint chips. Jk. Just bought the car a few months ago. Still working out stuff on the car before it hits the paint shop.

Any thoughts on these bad boys?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/380468323917...S:1123&vxp=mtr

I am still waiting on a response to whether these are glass or plastic. My question is that I have HID's installed on my factory fog lights now, would I be able to install these directly into one of the two slots, then get power from somewhere else to hook up a second bulb? Should I just buy another HID kit?

- Those will look good if you can rock the halo lights.
- I think the oem fog light bulb isHB3 and will not fit into a H3 bulb.

You would need to buy two new sets HIDs that is H3 style.

So the GS300 fog light bulb is a 9006, the LC bulb is 9006, I think I am good to go. The only issue now is tackling the second bulb and the wiring... I do not care if both are HID or not; one HID and one bulb would be just fine. If I am talking crazy someone please correct me.

I used a relay similar to this. I saw some at Fry's with the base for $4.99. Pretty sure ebay sells them.

When I am going to run two HIDs. I would run 2 relays (1 relay for each side). On each of the relay i would put two HIDs connectorr on the power line.

af1c331 - LC oem fog light does take the same bulb which is HB3 (9006). But this fixture is an after market fog lamp which is H3 style. I believe 9006 bulb are bigger.

confused still? If so google HB3(9006) & H3 bulb to see the difference.

I would run two sets of HIDs and not mix match. Just run the H3 till it burns out & buy two sets of HIDs. I have already set up one relay to plug up with HIDs. I will make another harness for the 2nd HIDs later.

Looks like this project is going to be a little more complicated and costly than I was hoping. The bulbs are VERY different in size. Thanks for the input!
