I have 55 on my lows. I just meant as long as you're not running 75 you should be fine. With fogs IMO you should only do 35 and you can actually get pretty nice aftermarket projector lenses now to keep it in check. The kit I bought from was plug and play ballasts and ignitors are combined and they are the slim style. Cord was long enough to run both ballasts back into the empty battery space and fuse space for the respective sides.

Really sorry for the bump, I just don't want to start another thread with similar content. Umnitza, is the kit you posted compatible with the OEM foglight housing, or do I have to buy a separate projector housing?
