i think it looks like something that may work for HID, im asking your final opinions. would they fit in our fog hole slot? theyre only 4", least amount of glare? hopefully? it say sit has reflective backings or something

Looks like it will fit but you will need to custom fit the mounting bracket with a little work.

Mount that new bracket to your OEM foglight bracket. That'* what we all do.

It'* all about the reflector and lens design. You won't know until you turn them on.

If you had a pic of what the reflector inside looked like, I could give you a pretty good idea combining that with what I see of the lens design.

nah sorry man i have the same page to go by that you have

im skeptical to buy them. theyre not listed anywhere on ebay so nobody has them and youre not sure if theyre actually hid compatible so i might go with my original 2 plans:

1) install HID lights into my current fog light housing which i really dont want scatter

2) find those lights that are supposed to resemble HID lights in colorization and install them into the fogs

this seems like a really nice alternative to those 2 ideas though, anyone know if theyre worth it?

Try to find internet reviews of the lights, or references to them on other car forums.

I wouldn't spend near $500 on an HID set without projectors.

To me it seems this kit is designed for offroaders who do night time trail driving. I'd really be shocked to see a crisp beam pattern coming from those, but then again I'm no expert.

its hard enough to find HID fog lights. the only way of getting fog light projectos would be to install s2000 or tsx ones in the fog light
