    So I'm stuck here. I'm following both the SlimCubby install info as well as the DDM install info. And I think it's screwing with my brain.

    The DDM one says the stock fog light connector goes directly into the HID ballast, and the ballast goes directly to the light. There is no connection between the bulb itself and the OEM connector.

    The SlimCubby instructions say the stock connecter does plug directly into the light. (this is one problem im having, since the DDM bulb doesn't have a female connector to mate with the stock one)

    Not sure if you were able to figure it all out, but, here's my write up for my DDM hids in the fogs. Hope it works out for you.

    Thanks for that. That is exactly what I did, but I didn't notice if the lights came on or not since it was middle of the afternoon, looking into the sun.

    I'll try it again when I get some more time this week. Expect a PM eventually, lol.
