no u dont hafta buy the hid kit for the projectors. they should come with bulbs already in the headlights. most like they are H1 bulbs. u might be able to find a fog light hid kit on ebay..not sure. could u just use a regular hid kit and then get the correct sized bulb for the fogs?

i know the ones i got came with h3s for the low beam and 900 somethin for high beams... id recommend taking the lights they put in them out though because they don't last that long and theyre not that bright.

^^ Get them in your hands then buy bulbs.

HID's are not required to be put in projectors but will produce a more effective and useable light then a halogen could.

As for the fogs???? DO NOT!! I repeat DO NOT install hids in the fogs unless you have projectors which i don't think you do. If you do by all means do it. I find it kind of upsetting to see people reccomending that very thought.

Change the headlight bulbs to silver star or even nokya if you don't want HID lights. The CCFL in them is a good addition over LED halo's as well.

Any more questions let me know.

Scatter???? If they are not projector fogs then do not do it. They are not designed to throw the light correct and will glare and have to be aimed into the dirt. If you have Projector fogs by all means if not do not do it.

And i would reccomend 6000k for a HID kit. It will resemble sun light and be a very pure white. 6000k is the closest to a OEM HID setup.
