You can go brighter very easy. Angel eyes have been done, YoungGunLS1 did them on his Bonne.

The way I got brighter was I bought some projector fogs from a Caddy that had been modded to fit the Bonne, and put HID'* in there. Simple simple.

Is there anything out there to show how that mod or other mods went? I am assuming custom brackets needed to be done? How did you do the wiring? solder it?

Actually, sawgunner fabbed them up for me. So, if you were to send him a PM I'm sure he could help you out. I just installed them.

No wiring was needed either since the projector housings used were H11 bulbs which have a plug that'* the same as the 880 which is stock.

Another route you could do is this: http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Ap...Raptor-HID-Kit

$35 + shipping to you. Just select the 880 bulb and your preferred color from the drop down menu and order. I have two of these kits in my car (low beams/fogs) and they're great.

Ok i looked at the site you have linked. I have a few questions if you don't mind. How easy is the install? How bright are they? Do I need the HID harness, adapter cables or the mounting brackets? What bulb color would be good?

Install is a snap. Especially if you order 880 bulbs. They will be completely plug and play if you do that.

They are very bright, and I suggest 5000k color bulbs.

You do NOT need the HID harness, adapter cable, or the mounting brackets. The only I used in my install was what came in the box, and some zip ties.



In this picture you can see the ballasts for my foglight HIDs. They are on the bottom of the radiator crossmember thing, held on by 3M doublesided tape, and zip ties. They've been riding there no problem for over a year.

Don't use the double tape that they give you, it'* junk. Go to your favorite part store and get some heavy-duty 3M double tape. That'* what I used, with the zipties as backups. Double tape is still holding strong.
