HID upgrade + LED fogs

Finally did my lights on my TH
It was a pain to get to since you have to go through the wheel well to get to the lights but once your in its all plug and play!

^ what he said lol. I'm looking to upgrade as well. Might have been easier to remove the front bumper, only a few screws holding it on up top and below (and the odd hidden one in the wheel wells) but it gives more access. I've had to remove mine a few times to install fogs and such. Not too bad.

Makes a huge difference. It's crazy how bright the HIDS are. I got them from a store in Scarborough called lighting depot. Brimlley and sheppard area. The guys very helpful. For the fogs you have to modify them by shaving the pins on the lights so they can snap in. It may sound confusing but if you buy them from that place the guy there will show u everything. He was very helpful.

The hid cost 120 for the pair. And the fog lights cost 50 for the pair.

His are 6000k

I also found a place that is going to do the led daytime running lights custom lighting guy that is scketing something up for me I'll keep everyone posted on that one as well.

All in all changing to HID and LED was worth it. I love it makes the car look so different!

Wow looks so much nicer! I can't wait to do mine as well.

Rossetti, do you have any error messages now that you installed the lights? I just want to install the HID's only.

awesome to have some more toronto members posting these finds & recommendations here! I don't know much about car lighting - do they come in a kit, complete with ballasts/harnesses all that jazz? error free?

Yeah it's definitely nice to see other Toronto or GTA members on here!

As for the kit, yeah most should come with the all necessary items to set up the HIDs

No errors or light out warnings for the fogs or HIDS the kit decodes it. I changed the license plate blubs to led and I get a light out message in the car.

Awesome thanks good to know!

Where did you buy your LED license plate bulbs? I bought 2 different sets already and they don't seem to fit... The ones I have bought have a base that is too large to fit inside the slot.
