I just wanted to add. I have installed HID kits on my 01 SSEi, the Low, High and Fog lights. It looks great. I can actually SEE at night. i can see EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. I see things people don't see... j/k

I just had one concern, the seller you are buying your HID hits from ( mydepots) is a SOB. I bought a kit from him off eBay and he send me a piece of wire from CHINA!! I contacted him trying to explain to him that he send me the wrong item, he basically showed me the middle finger and it took me 2 months to get my money back with PayPal'* help. I found a new guy on eBay. He is GREAT!. You buy anything from him and if there is problem with it, he will send you replacement the next day no matter what. I bought 4 HID kits from him already and will not stop anytime soon.

I hope I never have to deal with the issues you did with this guy if he indeed is that bad. He'* always shipped out the correct item. What is the other seller you mentioned, and what'* his price per kit?

He is on eBay as well. His Username is hidlighting168. He sells his kit for $67.98 but he is a good seller. I actually went to his warehouse in Walnut CA and took about 5-6 defective ballasts that i had and exchanged them. He was pretty chill. Nice people. They stand behind their work and products. For a extra $8, it is well worth it. Trust me!!

im not knocking you for doin all HIDs but why would you do them in your highs? unless your gonna leave them on for a solid 30 seconds to a minute or more your not getting peak light output, i use HIRs (halogen infared relfecting) for my highs, for $50 a pair plus shipping they are amazing, brighter than silverstars, i would have done them in my lows if i didnt already have HIDs

Well, i ma tell you why? First reason is because i got a killer deal on my last few HID kits that i got so it basically was Free to me! Second of all, i wanted to be different from others.. And third of all, i get people that get behind me with their high beams and try to blind me all the time but they don't know about the auto dimming rear view mirrors so it is a good way of paying back some of those people with the HID high beams!! I also used different color temps on all the HID kits I've installed.

haha, i love the people that flash me cus they think the HIDs are my highs so i flip on my highs (extremely bright!) and then the really stupid ones flash me again after i show them that i didnt have mine on so they get blinded by me

if i had gotten a free one i would have put them in, what temps did you use for them?

haa haa i know exactly what your saying. I am using the 6000K for the low beams, 5000K for the high beams, and 12000K for the fog lights. I was using the hyper yellow 3500K for the fog lights but it looks much better and COOLER with the 12000K. With the hyper yellows, it actually takes away the true HID colors so that'* why i changed them to 12000K Violet purple instead of the 3500K Hyper Yellows. I will put some pictures of them when i wash the car. I haven't washed her in a week...

Regarding messing with the bracket to change how the fogs are aimed:

Stop! Don't do it! There is a screw on the back of the foglight projector that will aim the projector so the housing does not have to be moved. Just adjust it while the lights are shining against a wall to get them where you want them. It has a wide range of adjustment.

In your pic, it'* the screw on the right that looks like it has a big washer under it.

And just so you know, I spent a lot of time messing with the brackets before I discovered this, because my fogs were originally pointed at the ground more or less. DOH!
