    Im going to do the same mod to my car. I have ordered H3 bulbs so hopefully they are the right ones!
    I am not sure whether the cables are going to be long enough or if i am going to have to extend them.
    I really have not done any investigation into what i am going to do to fit them yet. I would have thought i will mount ballasts behind the front bumper.
    I dont know if the wiring plug to the original fogs is a direct fit into the ballast like with the main and full beams either. If it is then you dont need to worry about the extra wire. I think i will need to make a hole in the twist off fog light cover and put the rubber grommet on the bulbs in that hole to make it all waterproof.
    Until i jhave done it i can notr be of any more help i am afraid. Im planning to do it when i fit some new headlights when i have the bumper off.

    Shouldn't H3's just be 2 wires as normal with H4's having 3 wires going to the bulbs?

    you should still be able to get the lamps to fit the original lights probly just have to leave the cover off and leave the standard plug disconectd and conect your high voltage ones

    H3 only have 2 wires so dunno what you have bought


    and about MOT il tell you on wednesday thursday as that is when mine is booked in

    Each to thier own and all that ,BUT are these HID'S kit's not the real mcoy actualy worth the hassel with police and ministry ?
    i know they are far brighter than OE bulbs ,but the lenses on OE lights aren't the right patern ect and blinding on-comeing traffic just for the sake of having HID'S , i would save youre money on buying them and the fines as its going to be the next excuse to be pulled for IMO , PLEASE dont take this the wrong way its not intended to offend
