      Installing HIDs in headlight and foglight

      Guys

      I am actually planning to have HID projectors installed in my foglight. But, I cant decide if it will make any electrical problems for my diesel amaze.

      My current headlight setup has got a Bixenon HID Projector kit 35W 5000K. My idea is to have a hid projector (35W or 55W) kit to be installed in the fog light assembly.

      So, if anybody could kindly give me any advise regarding this, I would be very much obliged.

      Go for 4300k imho, 5000k will give poor visibility in rains
      3000k is even better for visibility but 4300k is balanced
      bhvm is the perfect expert for this
      I used his advice to install in my Innova

      I actually have an aftermarket headlight with DRL which came with 4300K bulb.....so I first went for 6000K and then came down to 5000K......found that to be a balance between the visibility aspect and looks

      I will go for 2700K or at most 3000K. I have 3000K HIDs in the fogs in my Civic. Sometime I feel that 2700K may have been even better. When you look for a fog then 'balanced' is a joke.

      Definitely , I agree with this
      I didnt mention I meant 4300k is balanced for headlamps
      For fogs, 2700-3000k is certainly better

      I overlooked the foglamps part, hence assumed install in existing headlamps in my previous post
      Though since the last week or so, I feel scatter has increased and beams are a bit too much in certain spots in my car
      I guess in future, I wont opt for HID without projectors
      Best to try for OEM fitted headlamps or aftermarket setups such as Morimoto FXR (Have found a quote for around 45k and source seems to be genuine) so as to be kind to other road users as well as our own eyes
      Though I plan on selling a couple of our cars soon , hopefully Ecosport or Compass will be the next car to occupy my garage to accompany our Tucson (seriously underrated car imho)
      I love the stock LEDs on our Tucson , excellent accuracy by Hyundai for headlamps etc. High beams are halogens but I dont plan on changing them as yet given the benefits of a halogen in certain scenarios

      PS- Ive seen your name quite a few times in another popular forum (not sure if allowed to mention the name here)
      I really look forward reading your views in the more mainstream threads there usually along with a couple of other members
      I see you are also a Honda fan like me(or my family for that matter, we love Honda cars)

      45k for a morimoto setup is too high, what does the setup include
