HID Conversion

For the Pony Package foglights, does anybody know of a good HID conversion kit to match the factory HIDs for the H11 style bulbs in the fogs?

I've bought every HID kit off eBay. Super cheap and if u know what ur doing its an easy install. Just get the bulb type u need. If you need a hi/low make sure you order a bi-xenon kit. For dual beam kits I have paid as little as $45 for a 35w kit. Use two sided tape on the back of the ballasts and secure with a screw if possible. I have installed at least a dozen of these kits with no problem in all different vehicles including my F-150 and my Stangs. If you want the brightest light possible ( meaning best visual) order 6000k temperature bulbs. 8000k have a hint of blue 10000k are really blue 12000k are starting to get purple. The higher color temperature you go the less lumens you will get out of them. 35w and 55w kits are good. I use both. Make sure your kit contains a relay harness you will need it. And also separate order HID capacitors to prevent any error codes and striving of the headlights which will burn out bulbs and eventually ballasts.
Hope this helps.

You're not going to find one that matches perfectly.

The factory fog lights aren't HIDs. They are just a standard H11 Halogen

I think everyone was slightly confused by your first post..

You want to convert from the standard bulbs to HIDs correct?

Yeah it wasn't well publicized and I'm sure they're Xenon, but a picture would be great. Then we can point you to several places that sell HIDs
