Here’s Part 2 of my HID fog light installation. I had to do quite a bit of modification to get this kit to work. If you’d like less work, I would suggest getting the fog light kit with amber lenses and not doing the HID. It would take a lot less time and effort. Still, I’m happy with the result and happy I made the extra effort for my Element. I will say that after having the lights for a few months there is a small amount of moisture in the lenses, probably due to them not being completely sealed. It doesn’t seem to effect anything, but I think it’s worth mentioning. Also worth mentioning is that I have yet to have anyone flash their lights at me or indicate that my lights were blinding them. I think the key here is to make sure you aim your lights properly. That way you can avoid such issues. As for your local laws, be sure and consult with those before installing any auxiliary lighting. I’d hate for you to go through the time and expense, only to find your modifications are illegal.
Here’s some useful links for you.
