    Talking HID Bulbs for fog lights on Vec c

    Hi all

    I have currently got 6000k hids from hids direct for my dipped beam

    I want to change my fogs to the same so they match

    Anyone done this?

    If so which bulbs should I use with no errors etc

    I gather the fogs are H3's?

    Cheers

    Ive done the front fogs with a spare 35w canbus kit i already had, although they produce alot more usable light i think there is deflector inside which could do with coming out. To look at the lamp theres alot more light being given out but not much of a noticable difference on the road. H3 btw

    I've got a spare kit at min and debated this, but it's a h7 kit, will the bulb connectors not fit if I got h3 set of bulbs? I assumed they'd be different?

    Do they need extra cancellors if I get some?

    Or is just the bulbs and wiring and bulbs ok?

    i bought standard ballasts and cancellers but still had the dash warnings . i was advised to try the canbus pro ballast by hid direct and they worked ok. i also had to swith the polarity on the bulbs for them to work ie: black to red and red to black not black to black and red to red hope this helps
