I would like to see the Fog Lights with the real RS HID lights, not these. Hard to tell. These non projector HL wash out the idea of HIDs.

Dude they look great don't let anyone tell you different, nice to see you aftermarketing this car!

just curious tho with the fog lights and normal lights on wouldnt this be dangerous on the road?

I understand why u want HID headlights but why not just the fogs or the regular lights

non rs cars have fog lights they can run with their headlights. RS cars have DRL that do not run with the headlights.

It's not just about looking great. Taking a halogen housing (conventional headlight) and putting an HID bulb in it is unsafe because the glare and intense bright light that it produces. It can blind oncoming traffic, and that's why it's ILLEGAL!

Yes it did melt them just a little so I added the halo rings to the fog light. I turn the fog lights on on rainy days and the halos on regular days.

I have been running hid fogs for around 10 months now with no melting or problems at all. I used a 25watt kit though. I wouldn't feel safe with a 35watt kit.

Well the 25watt kit is about the same brightness. If your worried about heat you could just swap out the 35watt ballasts to 24watt ballasts. I have also seen some places that sell hids are capping the bulbs. This should help cut the beam a little for fog lights. I have not seen them run in person with the caps though. Not sure if the sell the caps for self install though.
