thanks for the complements. I wasn't sure if i wanted to install the hid kit cuz i really didnt want to take off the bumper but it wasn't that bad. im happy i did it and love how it looks.

the hid i bought came with this bracket thingy that had two holes at each ends so i mounted it under the passenger side head lights, i cant really explain it but under the headlights there were two screws so i unscrewed it and mounted the ballast there and it works really good, but for the driver side i couldn't do the same cause the windshield wiper fluid tank is in the way so using the bracket i unbolted a bolt that was on the fender and mounted it so its hanging inside behind the bumper. i know other members placed it behind the crash bar using zip tie i was gonna do that but i didnt have any zip ties so i had to do figure something out.

do you really have to take the bumper off in order to install them? what if you just remove the bottom shroud and jack the car up?

i got them off ebay . for the hid kit and 6000k bulbs i paid 130 and thats with shipping. the kit alone was i think like $86 with shipping but i had to pay an extra $15 to get the 3000k. yeah you have to take the bumper off to install them but it really isn't that hard i didn't want to take my bumper off either but i really like the way the hid fogs look so i said f*@k it and just did it and im glad i did. i say if i can do it you can too

That looks great! I am still thinkin that is one of the best mods one can do, and it is no longer all that expensive. I remember years ago you couldn't get a kit for less than $300.
