I've got a 2008 GT500 with factory HID head lamps, but the factory fog lamps are amber (non HID). They just don't look great mixed like that, and I drive during the day usually with my fogs on, they need to be HID (car is black no stripes.) The HID fogs would look mean, yeah and better lighting.

Every discussion I've read through so far left off around a year ago, any solid (no drilling) kits out there that anyone has installed or had a shop install? I'll assume there will need to be a relay switch, and I'm looking for a "plug-and-play" setup. I want the white bright lights to match the factory HID's, not interested in any blue...

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Looks like two different vendors have released a kit.

hidguy.net


Has anyone installed the kit 5202 from HIDGUY.net?

What kit did you use? You're lights are slightly blue; like you are at 6000-8000k, looks real sharp.

Just ordered the 5202 Slim Kit, 5000k (pure white). Hopefully I'll get em' by this weekend, weather looks promising for the install.

Well I used H-11 HID kit 6000K and then bought a Fog LIght kit Pilot PL-610M and then fabricatied brackets to use those light in place of the stock light. The pilot lights are glass where as the stock light housings are plastic and will melt. I basically tore all the guts out of the Pilot lights and made them fit to what I wanted. The lights are the same size as our stock lights and you cannot tell from looking at them that they are replacements. Down below is the Light that I used. As far as HID kit, get it anywhere you can.

From what I understand, as long as you stay within the 30-35w range there isn't a heat issue using the factory housing. Looks like you are in the 50-55w range which would probably be too hot. Good to have options thanks for sending the links.

I'm going to install the 5202 kit soon, I'll post results - hopefully not pics of molten plastic.

I have 35 watt HID bulbs in and if you try to use you stock lens to use HID's you will melt the plastic. I have 55 watt's in my Head lights and have no problems.

I got mine from HID Guy 5000 K, got both the headlights and fogs. The headlight bulbs from him will actually actuate. Very cool and look very good. The photo is not the greatest.
