for the fogs you would have to make custom brackets most likely.
Well I don't use my high beams much and I don't normally flick people a lot of the time. I mean, let'* just say you had $10,000,000, would you get S2000 for both lows and highs?
naa, I would get S2k'* for lows and then a set of TL projectors with ZKW lenses to act as another set of low beams and high beams (since they are bi-xenon)

but that isn't inportant. I am sure you will be happy in the end.

That'* an interesting proposal.

Do they already come with the ZKW lenses or do you need to buy them separately and have them installed and why would you use them instead?

TL projectors come with freshnel lenses. The ZKW projector lenses are clear and have the same focal point which allows for better output and a sharper more colorful cutoff.

so yes, you have to buy the zkw lenses seperately from the tl projectors

Alright, thanks for that but I'm afraid we've got off topic.

I was originally posting to find H.I.D. fog lights. Unfortunately I am still not sure what to do.

My options are:

1.) Buy an H.I.D. fog light projector??? and install an H.I.D. kit

2.) Buy an H.I.D. kit and install it on my current foglights

Now I'm not even sure if they make H.I.D. projector foglights, who makes them, or where to find them. But for number 2 I found this website:

http://www.xenonpros.com/philips4300k.html

It says they make a Philips 4300K Kit in the 880 bulb size so I was wondering if it'* a real Philips kit and if it will closely match the headlights and if it will even fit in the fog lights hole. Or would it be smarter to buy a projector and what kind?

yes it would be a LOT smarter to use projectors. But unless you use the ones I linked above you will either have a fog light that does fill the hole or you will have to have it cutsom done.

hella makes projector fog lights that are HID.

Wait, I apologize. The 90mm Hella'* you showed me said theyre about 5"H x 5-5/8"W x 3"D, are you sure they will fit? Is my hole that big?

Now wait a second:

68142
90mm Fog Lamp Module, H7 bulb
(SAE compliant)

Beam patterns/technology:

* Halogen fog lamp

That is what it says for this light. It doesn't say Xenon or H.I.D. fog light. Maybe you misread or maybe I'm stupid. Maybe both?

Would there really be an issue if I put H.I.D. 4300K 880 bulbs in my current fog lights or would it noticably scatter?

Alright well I'm heading off to Westwood for a school reunion. I will be back around 5-6:00 but I thank you so far for all your help.

I found this website: http://www.xenonpros.com/philips4300k.html

It says they offer Philips 4300K H.I.D. bulbs in the 880 size. Is this for real??? This is the only site I think I've found with Philips 4300K H.I.D. in 880. Would it really be such a problem to buy it and put it in my fog light?

I'm sorry to triple post but I'm being pushed by my dad for a decision because we want to order new headlights but we would like to get the fog lights with them. I really want to get H.I.D. fog lights but it doesn't seem any people make a reasonably sized projector.

My plan is to order brand new stock headlights AND fog lights from GMPD and then purchase a Philips 4300K H.I.D. kit with 880 bulbs and put them in the fogs. Any problems?
