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

    True, but the low beams are projectors, so they work great.

    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.

    Agree to disagree. The low beam projectors are very different than the high beam reflectors. The low beam HIDs have precise cut-off at the top of the beam, excellent "throw", and no scatter. If they are not for you, great, but they work well.

    Maybe post a review after installation? Xenon Depot seems to sell high quality stuff, so I'm curious what you will think of their LED kit.
