Don't need anything special! I got a retro kit (bulbs are actually wired to the ballast instead of removable). The two wires from the ballast goes into the two prongs that the fog light went into. No dipped bulb errors or anything!

Just connect it up as if it was an older car (no need to run wires to the battery, use resistors etc). I used some doublesided foam tape (on hand) and mounted the drivers side ballast (slim) to a flat area and the passenger side to a semi flat area. No issues at all :D

Looking good! But.... What your local Ford Dealer says about it? My bet, they already void your electric warranty. I was told that for my local Ford dealer, so I'm waiting until my warranty period is over to start with the HID mods
:(

Great car! I love the color! Too bad it's not available in the 5spd MT here in Mx

I have 2 dealers:

1.- He is the best dealer in México, he is known as Mr. Xenon, he only sell ac ballasts, cn light bulbs and hnxgy or that bulbs, i know the bulbs that say xenon on the car's licence plate are bad quality but if the say hnxgy, bulbs are good quality.(this are in my headlights)

2.- Hes known as Luz Xenon Torreon Coahuila (on Facebook) and i think he sell the bad quality bulbs and the ballasts i dontknow their qquality (i have this on fogs)

Anyway if u want i can post u their direct contact info, pics to doference the bulbs but why u ask me that about my electrical warranty? Im scared now! PLol

What I'm saying is what Ford says about any aftermarket upgrade in your car. Ford could void your warranty if you are not using OEM parts in your car....
Just my 0.02c

Someone would show up and explain this matter in a better way.
