Hi, I would like to put HID lights in my fog lights, i currently have the low beams 8000k 55w (no relay) from ddm tuning.... i do not want to burn the housing, i am confused on what bulb to order since DDM does not have an 881 listed, i read some other members had to modify the housing and take out the chrome reflector etc. I just would like to know what bulb number i should order from DDM tuning and do i need a relay?

I would recommend getting a relay harness for both the low beam and fogs. I put in my low beam HIDs and had them for about a month no problems, but when I added the fog HIDs I blew fuses. I ordered 2 harness off of ebay for about 7 bucks each with free shipping and they work great. I bought my low beam HIDs from DDM because everyone here talks so highly of them. I ordered my fog HIDs from ebay, they are the exact same quality as the ones from DDM and they were cheaper and arrived quicker. Also if you read the warranty policy for DDM your better off just buying another set of $50 ebay HIDs rather than trying to get a replacement. I have not modified the fog light housing, so far there are no problems with melting and they dont blind on coming traffic because they are aimed low. I ordered 881 bulbs but i think you can use 880. I added a switch to the fog lights so that they are indepentent of the head lights, the wiring harness makes this very easy and you dont have to alter any of the cars wiring.

Can you post the link to the exact place where you bought your harness from? also how did you wire the fogs so they are independent? can i get away with just one relay since the low beam is fine i will use the relay on the fogs?

ive ran 35 watt kits (i call bs on 50 and 55 watt kits) without relays in the fogs without blowing fuses. but to make sure all bulbs are ignited turn on low beams first then fogs rather than just leaving the fog in the on position then when flicking on the low beams all 4 ballast are begging for juice.

I have Hid's in my fogs , low beams, and highbeams, all without realys and they all work fine, i have 6000K for the lows and fogs and 30,000k for the high beams the only thing i noticed since hids take a few seconds to heat up to the full color when i flash my highbeams they look pure white at 1st then they light up to pink so while im flashing the highbeams they just look white,

all 800 or 900 series bulbs are replaced with a single hid bulb that fits the socket. the dif between them is the wattage (27.5 or 37.5) and shape (some are staight others are L shaped). so it doesnt matter what u order.

Just search ebay for HID wiring harness, many sellers just pick the cheapest. The harness has a trigger circut that turns on the relay. Run one wire from the switch through the fire wall and use an add a circut fuse tap to take power off the fuse panel found by the driver side door. I placed a switch on the blank space next to the traction control and dimmer switch. There is room to drill a hole in the fire wall next to the master cylinder. You only need one wiring harness but used a second just because I wanted to make sure there was no potential to damage the original wiring for the lights.
