Same here, but I got the slim ones from VVME on ebay last november for $45 for my headlights.I'm not runnin fogs, but I got my HIDs from VVME.com, $58 shipped, plug and play. Had em for over a year and no problems yet.
If you want function, then stick with halogens. Nokya Hyper Yellow or Hoen Endurance Yellow Fogs will do the trick. From what I've picked up, HIDs will just reflect back at you in bad weather situations where you would use fog lights and halogens will be able to cut through it more easily.I'm looking for function here, not looks, so I don't need any fancy retro solution. 3000K HID is exactly what I'm looking for. Now if you guys can just tell me the brands you are running, that'd be great. Need a picture also looking from the side or from inside the car.
