    Looking for some help. I want to order a fog light HID kit for my 2012. I know my bulbs are H11. Where should I order from? What harness do I need? I just need a point in the right direction. Thanks

    Lowered 3/4, debadged, led tails, projector headlights with hids, billet grill, blacked out windows, painted front and rear bumper and grill shell. Inside, 4 crappy 15's, suede wrapped headliner and door panel inserts, alpine double din, few painted pieces inside, and every led is either blue or white.
    I've bought several kits from ddmtuning.com in the past and they are ok if you don't care about it coming from China. But the last few kits I had problems with the ballast burning out and also getting the wrong bulb size so I wouldn't recommend them. hidnation.com is pretty good though. Although I haven't bought anything from them yet.

    Oh, and a lot of fog light manufactures don't recommend using hid's due to the heat output in such a small space.

    I went w/ traditional/full-size ballasts for the projectors but slim ballasts for the fogs as there's a lot less space on the second kit.

    When you get the bumper off you'll want to unclip the H10/H11 12v feed from the bumper (2 clips) and tie it back in the main headlamp wiring area where you'll ultimately install the ballasts. Then tape the clips back onto the new ballast's plug. This is important as the clips actually protect the wire as it runs around a sharp/metal corner and down to the fogs.
