    Installed my HID 6000k (H11) on the fog lights. Enjoy the pics:

    Installation was pretty straightforward. I went with this kit. No code cancellers (which I thought I should get initially) and somehow it didn't went up on the dash which is a plus I supposed. Took about 10-15 minutes for each side.

    If anyone's wondering, the 6000k bulbs doesn't quite match the DRLs as they give more white/blue-hint lighting as opposed to white/purplish colour on the DRL. Can't wait for these fogs to match my 6000k D3S bulbs. Got them ordered already. :thumbup:

    Cheers mate. Yeap, just pull it right off. It's a PITA to put it back on though.

    let me know how you get on with the upgrade xenons as soon as you can as i may just skip out buying plain d3s and go straight to 6000k bulbs

    Well you can try the 25ohm 10w load resistors and see if that helps for you. I'm currently running 150ohms on each LEDs, works a treat.

    I already have the xenons and afaik the stockies are 4300k D3S. Too yellow-ish for my liking! :p
