HID Fog Q

Looking to order now.

9006 fitment for the OEM fogs.
Do I just order a 9006 HID kit and it will fit? I'm kinda clueless.

I see a huge difference in price also. Prolumens 200+ down to about 50 or 60 bucks depending on the vendor. What is the difference in quality?

I found a pretty cheap set:

I've also found this set:

Any difference between these 2 and the prolumens? just paying for the brand name?

I agree. Just find a slim ballast kit, and make sure you do your wiring right, and you will have no problems.
