The relays + capacitor is the solution for HID's.
I had a few more issues because of:
1) faulty ballast
2) loose bulb wiring (the plugs arent that well-insulated on the projector, so i ended up having to quick-disconnect one of the connections) --> no pics unfortunately

as for the halo fog lights --> eBay there was an option to have them plain or add halos (under the glass); supposedly, the switch they provide lets you switch between powering the halos, or the bulbs (one at a time only, so no akwardness)? i just realized actually, since the halo is under the glass and closer to the halogen bulb, i hope it doesnt get WAY too hot.
I"ll be getting them soon, and i'll post pics once i have them in/struggle getting them in.
Silly ricer, Wings are for planes!
