Fog lights

So, i just bought a Cobra front bumper with fogs, the complete kit. I was wondering, would my current HIDs that I have on my fogs (stock gt bumper) fit and work properly on my new set of fog lights? Anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance!

They are the same bulbs, but running HIDs in a halogen housing is dangerous to other drivers and I would not recommend it. There are plenty of very bright Halogens you can use that won't blind oncoming traffic and actually function in fog where a HID is not going to.

Alright thanks! I am planning swapping out. I'm sure they're ready to give out soon. Had them on for awhile. The fog lights actually came with halogen bulbs, i'll plan on getting those installed with the bumper.

Question for scotty and soccerluvr.... A couple weeks ago i went on a trip from phoenix az to odessa tx in a kia rondo with halogen projectors (oem)
Well the first thing i noticed is that its hard as **** to see when you have a cut off. We literally had to drive with the high beams the whole way. Any ways my question is how exactly is that better than having a hyper white light shining at everything in front of me

The cut off wasn't properly aimed. The passenger headlight you can raise up. But just remember to keep the left a little lower so you don't blind people.
