..i think i had the easiest installation out of all you guys. All i had to do was take out my old fog lights and gentlly place the angel eyes in the old brackets and screw them in. ..bam! i didn't see any moisture holes etc.. in them either, but then again i don't have them in upside down. They sure are pretty.

I misspoke earlier, the bracket was attached to the TOP of the stock bracket as can be seen in the pic. This way we could use the stock adjusting screw.

Thanks for the pic Seth. I FINALLY got them mounted. After like 2 hours of playing around. I took the brackets off that came with the Angel Eyes, and bent the stock metal tabs outward a little, and was able to slip them in between the tabs and screw them in. The hardest part was screwing them in since I couldn't see wtf I was doing and my hands are too big for the small amount of room I had. I had to file the tabs on the Angel Eyes a little but they are on so I'm happy for now.

Now onto the wiring.

I got everything wired, but where'* the best place to ground the black wire so that it doesn't come loose?? I'll try and figure something out in the meantime.

EDIT: I got everything wired, and found a decent spot to ground the wire. Everything is fine except for the switch which is still in the engine bay. I tried forever finding a spot to run it through into the car, but I'll have to drill a hole or something.

Seth, I can't tell from your pic how you got it through. I have a ton of wires going through that spot and a black plastic thing around it. Mine looks a bit different than yours. Did you drill a hole there?

Oh ya, I started this 'project' at 10am. It is now 4pm.

smellbird, Was thinking about replacing the bulbs in my stock fogs until i read my owners manual saying it should be taken in to the dealer if I don't have the proper aiming equip. I think what they are really saying is come on in and we will take your money. Looking at your pic you say that there is a adjusting screw for aiming correct?

Aviator, I read that too about the owner'* manual saying not to change them. I think it'* a scheme to get peoples' money too. But there is a screw n the bottom of the fogs that adjusts it.

Pete, thanks. One user said he put Silverstar H3 bulbs in his fogs. I checked out the Sylvania site and they only list a 880st for the replacement bulb. Will have to check if an H3 will work in mine. The lenses on my fogs are pretty clear with no fogging. Will have to checkout your angel eyes.

The Angel Eyes look great even when they are off! Soooooo shiny and clean....much better than the stock ones. There are just as bright as my low beams now

Can't wait to get the switch inside the car.
