Yep, I really like the way they turned out. Took me a while to figure everything out but if I had to do it again it would be a breeze.

Nope not HID. Ha

They are just the bulbs that came with the fog lights. So they are probably halogens. The lights were like $40 on eBay.

what lenses did both of you go with? the light difference could also be cause by different style halogen bulbs or even just the camera being used

Gah, my battery keeps dying. Do you think its related to adding the fog lights?

I might still have the factory battery. If so that would make it 10 years old about. Maybe just time to replace it?

If it's a motorcraft battery it could be original and 10 years would be past its prime. Most local parts stores can check your battery for you. I had a bad battery that ended up getting my alternator from over working it. Best to get it checked.

Yeah I think its the motorcraft battery. Going to get a new one later tonight or tomorrow. Figure I might as well replace it even if the alternator is bad.

Thanks.

I'd have them check your alternator while you was there just to be safe.

Pretty sure it was a bad battery. Went to Walmart because they are the only place open late and are a lot cheaper than auto zone, O Reilly's, etc. Got a new battery and now the car fires right up just fine.

While I was there I ended up also picking up some synthetic oil + filter, coolant, washer fluid, power steering fluid, and new wiper blades. Will be taking care of that tomorrow. Figure might as well change all the fluids because I have no idea when the previous owner did and I have had the car about 6 months.

Only bad thing is if it were to be your alternator you'll be back where you are now and possibly damage your battery. Maybe it was only your battery though.

you can wire up HID fogs the same way through the ambers if you'd like
Did you get the 35 or 55w? What temp and do I need a mounting bracket? Also if its not a problem can you post a picture of yours on?

i've run both 55w and 35w HIDs in GT fog housings...of course the 55w ones are much brighter...

color temp is up to you..i've run 3k (yellow), 6k (whitish blue), and i think i a 5k (more white)....it really comes down to personal preference. i'd get the mounting brackets unless you can make your own which isn't too hard...you don't wanna lose a ballast after all

like i said it's all about preference color temp wise

What would you recommend 35 or 55? It says that you shouldnt put 55w in smaller light housings.
