I've always liked DDMTuning.com kits. Cost a little more (roughly 85 shipped), but the ballasts are absolutely TINY and they are backed by lifetime warranties

yeah, theres various price and shipping price combo but they all end up around $60 a set shipped and xentec works great, out of the 9 months I used it, it flickered 2 times in our Honda Fit. Cant complain at all, especially for the money.

Lol, they actually have the tiny ballast hid kit on ebay too, comes out to $75 a set shipped. No lifetime warranty though, but I would make sure ddmtuning dont charge an arm and a leg for return shipping of a defective ballast or bulb, thats where they get you back.. In a year, the price of hid kit might drop down to $60 a set for the thin ballast kit, whats the point of paying $25 for shipping round trip for one defective ballast? You know what i mean? cause dont forget, you pay a good $8-10 to ship it in and they probably gonna charge $15-20 to ship it back to you. It adds up pretty quick.

Any issues with the HID bulbs in the stock IS-F fog housings? Can you post pictures of where you mounted the ballasts?

Clublexus vendor HIDExtra.com is currently offering $15 off their HID kits. $90 for the slimline and $75 for the regular kit. I'm thinking about ordering the 3000k H11 Slimline kit for the fogs. I just replaced the halogens in my wifes 06 MDX with a 600k kit from HIDExtra and I'm very pleased with both the customer service and quality product.

Here's a picture of the 6000k's installed in the MDX. Very white with a slight tint of blue.

I have no issue with the 3000k hid in my fogs. there is plenty of space behind the foglight to mount your ballast, I forgot where I ziptied mines, its either ziptied to a wire harness or to a metal beam.

Sorry to bring this up but dont want to start another thread, but my buddy just got his HID's for his fogs in this F-150 and they are sick. He got them from ddmtuning off craigslist for $25 at the house. Full kit too. I was wandering if you had any issues? I'm going to get the K around the low beams so they match.

For those who ordered the H11 for the fogs, did you order the 35W or 55W?
I'm thinking about ordering the 3K kit.

I ordered the 35w due to the small housing. The 55w is alot hotter and might melt it down. The 35w my roommate got are plenty bright enough and almost to bright! Hurts my eyes haha. I got the 4500k 35w slim line HID H11's
