    Default Facelift Hids Fogs : Best place to put Ballast's

    Hi all

    As the rubbish weather is on its way I want to fit Hids to my fogs. Vec is a 06 Facelift.

    Fitting won't be a problem but before I start can you tell or show me where you have put your ballasts.

    Thanks very much

    Chris

    Thanks for that mate. I didn't even think of putting them there.

    I do have the black tray underneath where the four push clips fit in.

    Should be enough room but Im going to pull the front off tomorrow and have a good look.

    Thanks again.

    Going to go with the idea of putting them on the underside tray maybe in some plastic containers to keep them protected. Thanks for you comment though mate.
    Really liking your undercar led project so far

    i had mine on the top of the fogs but they where holding water inbetween the light and ballast so relocated them to the sides of the crumple zone/cross member mount.

    i used cable ties to hold them on the sides with the wire pointing down.

    Thanks very much lads for your input.

    It's given me food for thought that's for sure.

    Going to remove the front bumper tomorrow to have a good look at my options, which now I have a few (Had none when I started this thread)

    Cheers
