    HID's in a halogen reflector are a no go.

    If you want to switch to a different light source like LED in reflectors (your fog lights) you need to change the entire housing, not just the bulb. Otherwise you will introduce glare and blind oncoming drivers and reduce your own lights effectiveness in fog.

    Look at replacement LED assemblies like Morimoto fogs or KC G4 fogs.

    It's a halogen reflector, so no, not great for HID's.

    Hey thanks Vhon. :thumbsup: You won't be alone. Or disappointed. PM me if you have any questions on the adjustment. Steve or Danny at @XenonDepot are only a phone call away as well. (Eastern Standard Time)
