Yeah you have to be careful of overloading you lcm. hopefully you only have 55's on your lows? Shouldn't need an error delete if you code the lcm. I bought mine from www.extremehid.com they have been amazing since day 1.

I was going to get the 35w kit because I assume there would be too much heat produced with the 55w. how about the adaptor cable? no right cause the connector is 9006 to begin with?

I put in a DDM tuning kit, less than 2 weeks later one bulb will fire but not stay lit. replacing with LEDs shortly. all HID fogs do is piss off the people you're driving at anyways.

^ are these plug and play? With no errors? I've been talking to the wife of getting yellow HID for the fogs but shops are charging about 100-150 for HID's 3k...can't really find a good reason to spend 100-150 on them but if they work for you and are really nice and bright I'll get them

Running hid fogs will also mess up your LCM. The ones I had fried my on-board computer button on the left stalk.

Yea, they're regular halogen bulbs.

No it won't. You may have had a cheap/bad kit - the factories can sometimes produce ballasts that have internal shorts in them or bulbs, but it's very very rare.
