I have the Philips HID kit and it is very easy, plug and play. The 9006 fog light harness plugs right into the balasts. I have seen some of the Catz HID kit and that requires you to run wires for ground and to the battery.

Mine are 4600K type Philips which I purchased thru a group buy at this supplier.

Straightforward install (plug and play) and no hassles (warning lamp issue or anything). Very satisfying!!:thumbup:

If my memory serves me, cost me around ~$ 500.

Woah...I'm lookin @ this site and it has the ballast for $100 and a bulb for $80...so thats $360 for a whole set right?

There are 2 ballast units, one has no price.

I put catz galaxy white bulbs for my fog lights.
Not as good as real xenon but they matches to my stock HID pretty good.
Saved lots $$$ and time.

Catz 6000 h.i.d was $550 from Visualdynamics -- group buy.... Is Philips better than Catz ?? I dunno... maybe someone here tried them both...

if i run HID fogs, and aim them properly, can they be as bright (or nearly as road illuminating) as stock headlamps?

i dont have xenons, and would love to run my fogs alone, with some nice cathode DDE's :D

The set I got fit perfectly in the housing. No modification done and was a direct replacement of the stock foglight bulb.

^^ I don't know if that would be possible, now if you could fit some Xenon projectors in your fog light housing with a little modification, it would be a lot better than just spreading out Xenon light without much focus to it, because from my understanding the way the reflectors are set up in the fogs is to produce a wide, but short distance pattern (turn on just your fogs and see).
