only it wasnt in a focus...

it was in my friends 2002 honda civic. he has black housing projector headlights in it and the halogens SUCKED. i mean you couldnt see crap! so i ordered him a set of Apexcone 8000k H1 H.I.D. headlights from revoloution performance motorsports (http://www.therpmstore.com/) for $99.95 shipped! these hid's are AWESOME! thats all i can say about them. they are lifetime gauranteed on all parts including bulbs! i will most deffinetly be ordering more stuff from these guys. i ordered them last wednesday night and they were on my fedex truck saturday morning. they came from texas to ga in 2 days and they shipped them as soon as they got there thursday morning. now on to the good part. the ballasts on these things are insane! they are smaller and thinner than my cellphone! they were absoloutly simple to insall. plug and play and your done! just insert the bulbs in the housings and plug the power into the power and ground to the ground and turn the lights on. i was ready for the worst being this kit was so cheap but im amazed at how wonderful it is. i HIGHLY reccommend buying these guys product. on to the pics...

as soon as i got them i pulled them out of the fedex box they were in and out came this nice looking very small thin box


then i removed all components and checked it all out. everything simply plugs in. it was so simple. you really cant screw these up.


then i noticed the ballasts, they seemed to be missing. until i realized these were the ballasts. they are the smallest thinnest ive ever seen. these are comparisons to my motorola ROKR cellphone. the cellphone measures just a hair over 4" long and 1&3/4" wide


and this is how thin they were. my cellphone measures 5/8 of an inch thick.


heres a pic of the halogens on the passenger side and the hid installed on the drivers side.


and heres both hid's installed.


and heres the best shot i could get of the cutoff. its pretty decent considering these lights were cheap ebay crap halogen projector lights that had absoloutly no adjustments. but hey thats what the guy wanted.


tell me what you guys thing and enjoy!

those are going to do a good job blinding people...but hey if he wants to get people pissed off at him I guess that's cool to.

Just wait until he drives past that one driver that's like a bug...I SEE LIGHT! AHH DRIVE TOWARDS THE LIGHT! DRIVE TOWARDS THE LIGHT! BAAAAAAANNNNNNNNG!

You're always better off just buying projectors and puttin HIDs in them. They deflect light better.

those are projectors dingdong. try reading before you type and assume. if they werent projectors they wouldnt have the cutoff like they do with reflector housings. and the pics were taken sqatted down into the oncoming beams of light. so ya if your driving a go cart in oncoming traffic your probobly gonna be blinded. but thanks for your critisizm.

they should fit the focus but they will be hard to mount without being visible. they also make a slim line race kit but i believe it costs more. the 55 watt kit will wash out the color of the hid's after a while and the 35 watt kit is intensely bright so not to pursuede you against the race kit but i just thought id throw that out there to help you decide.

what does the rs bumper have anything to do with the lights? if regular bulbs fit in the lights then hid bulbs should fit in there. they will be exactly like the halogen bulbs only hid. they will lock into the socket the same.

to install a set into the fogs you will need to order a set of hid's for your specific bulb. say if you have a 9003 in your fog then you click 9003 in the pull down menu and order them. everything will come with the kit that you need. you just mount the ballast and plug the red wire into the + foglight plug and the black wire into the - foglight plug and then just slide the bulb into the light from the backside (after removing the halogen of course) and lock it in place. turn them on and your done.

okay, i understand. So I would need to find a light to fit the bulbs into. As of right now my svt has fogs but im getting rid of them and replacing them with different ones.

where can I find lights or "housings" for these bulbs?

i dont understand where your coming from. why would you need to "find a light to fit the bulbs into"? they will go in the fog lights. what do you mean where can you find the housings? they should be in your front bumper already. do you have the rs bumper or no? im just not clear on what your asking here.

Okay.
Gonzorelic: yes I have the RS bumper already and I'm trying to find a fog light that will fit in there and then if I/should I fit HID's with that bulb size into those fogs. Also, did you get the plug and play harness or the full relay? What's the full relay?

So I looked at Hella's site and their micro DE's use H3 size bulbs. So I could take out the halogen bulb and toss in the HID kit with the H3 bulb and everything would be snazzy?
Would it be worth the extra 100 bucks? Or is the 55W Halogen powerful enough?

Sorry if I'm being confusing, I am trying to be as clear as possible. And thanks for all your help guys!

^^^ HID's are always worth it. Butif your using them as fogs i would look into the 3000k or lower range. The more yellow hue will provide far better performance for bad conditons and dark areas alike.
