    Got a few questions and feel free to chime in at anytime....Should be getting these black headlights (BHLM) in the mail soon....I'm thinking about upgrading from stock bulbs to a HID kit....Then I was going to go for the yellow fog light look not really thinking HID kit for fogs....Please feel free to let me in on any ideas or anything to help me out here

    #1 What is the best sealant to use to seal the headlight housing?

    #2 Would a DDM HID Kit Slim Ballast 35W 4500K or 5000k be better for driving at night then leaving in the stock bulbs or would a 55W kit be too much as in brightness?

    #3 Would just going with the HID kit work better with the BHLM

    #4 Which is the best way to go yellow on the fog lights....yellow bulbs?
    lamin-x yellow film? any other ideas?

    THANKS:)
