if you put the projector and HID kit in the fogs are you still going to do 2500k or are you gonna match your headlights?

Headlights
  • FX-R 1.0 Projectors
  • Lightwerkz 35w ballasts w/ Philips 85122 bulbs
Fog Lights
  • Clear lens/Custom Shield retrofitted P46 projectors
  • Lightwerkz 35w ballasts w/ 4300k bulbs

Both sets of bulbs have colorshifted at this point which is good. Maybe I'll take updated photos sometime. All of these photos are as of more than a year ago.

Updated my stock halogen lights in the facelift coupe to FX-R 3.0's. Just to show a little here!
  • Morimoto FX-R 3.0 w/ clear lense
  • Morimoto 3Five 5000K bulbs
  • Morimoto 3Five ballasts

Nothing special with the bulbs, might invest in some OEM bulbs further down the track.

Relay you will need and the car will have to be coded for xenon lights. What you chose is perfect
