Re: running fog lights

you mean running lamps, you can turn the fogs on without headlights the running lights have to be on.

Re: running fog lights

On mine you have to have running lights on to be able to turn on fog lights.

Well I do not have too much experience with HIDs, but I would try and help my best. With what I said You can turn the fog lights on and off separate to the headlights. I Just leave mine on all the time though.

I'm running 6000k's HID's in my fogs now. I tested out the brightness of using just my fogs in pitch black darkness tonight and I could get away with running those fogs only if I wanted to but I won't. I'm better off using the 5,000k HID dual beams on the headlights I had installed at the same time as my fogs. I was using the headlight and fogs combined when using stock bulbs BUT now I mainly use just the headlights cuz using just the fogs or headlights & fogs combined will blind other people on the road. Remember this when you upgrade to HID's man. They WILL blind people if you're not careful.

Re: running fog lights

I just ordered a set of HID lights for my wife's Edge, DDMtuning.com seems to have a good reputation but I have not installed them yet so I dont yet know how it all will go. I hope to do that this weekend.

That's where I got mine from! I forked put $200 to get a shop to do it & the guy doing the install said some of the pieces were missing such as a relay or something. I know squat about cars so I don't recall the specifics. The guy said had my buddy & I tried to do it, I would have not succeeded or at least did a half a$$ completion because of the relay etc. Remember that ddm ships from China directly so when you get your tracking #, DON'T put it into fedex, use USPS.com!
