    Installed Overhead Compass and Temperature Display along with outside temperature sensor and wiring; LED lights reverse backup; LED license plate lights; GTA Audio kits for iphone audio; Spare tire steel braided air hose extension connection to rear bumber; Installed new headlights along with new bulbs PIAA H4 XTreme and for fog lights PIAA H10 XTreme bulbs.
    You don't have to replace the whole unit (assembly) just the bulb. If the fog light is a Toyota OEM part, then consult your owners manual for the correct bulb replacement. Keep in mind though, if your going to replace it yourself (not difficult or hard at all) remember "never" install any new bulb (fog lights, headlights, tailights, interior lights, etc.) with your bare hands-fingers, use clean gloves, cloth-rag, etc. If you touch the new bulb with your fingers, which contain oils, you risk damaging the new bulb once it is installed and turned on.

    You can do it, just take your time and be patient, nothing to it!

    Hate to break it to you, but those aren't HID, those are halogen... Those are just some cheap bulbs dipped blue so they look fancy. HID bulbs require a ballast and I would not recommend putting them in a stock reflector housing that was designed to take a halogen.
