    did the "fogs on anytime" mod today very easy to do and about $10. But after I finished I did a few tests with the fogs on and my pass. side low beam burnt out:confused:(high beam works fine) Has anyone had this happen after this mod or was my bulb on the way out:confused: What is the best brand and bulb to replace them with:confused: (besides HID's Im poor lol):( Thanks guys

    i did it, but it was free for me. already had the wire and connectors lying around.
    but never had a problem with my passenger lights. but mine are also HID so idk if that makes a difference.
    Texasislandboy is local here and has it done without HID but not sure of his bulbs burning or not.

    did the "anytime foglight mod" and so far (in my garage) everything checks out. Took extra care to do the mod, so took prolly 30 minutes (double checked wire like 4 times.....octochecked?). If I had to do it again, could do in about 10 minutes. Thanks again for the great mod.

    i'll be checking with them on Monday. If they aren't bi-xenon, it's not worth it to me. does anyone know if there are issues with getting the 55w versions?
