Get the vmp kit, has everything you need.

Don't blind everyone else on the road, ditch the tinted headlights if you want to see.

Might as well tint your windshield if you want the blacked out look.

I'm doing fine with the DDM kit. It doesn't blind oncoming drivers and its just a bit brighter than my stock headlights and housing. The ones I have now are smoked. If tinting your windshield was legal, I would. It's not to hard to see out of the tint

Bright is good. Just not aimed directly towards oncoming traffic.... Not cool. I've seen some on the road.

Don't know If you figured it out yet or not but I just wired my fogs to the sidemarker lights so they turn on when you pull out the light switch. You just have to splice the wire in those ill post pictures in a bit

55w for fogs? It'll be too bright. 55w are more suitable for headlights since its a bigger lamp compared to the fogs. Even if you use 55w for both heads and fogs, the fogs would still appear brighter. Not trying to discourage you from doing what you want, just saying.

Btw, where are you ordering your HIDs from? I got my 55w from DDM for $45 but that was 3 yrs ago. Lol

Well it's not a mustang but that's how I have my Evo set up. I had yellow fogs on the stang before but I really didn't like it, I swapped the whites back on.

Sorry, my iPhone sucks hairy balls when it comes to night pics. I tried to filter the first pic to minimize the glare.

That's 55w-8k for the heads and 35w-8k for the fogs. Turn signals are switchbacks.
