I've got the same lights and also did the HID upgrade on them for about $50 delivered.

The ballast fits inside the housing. I stuck it to the metal half of the housing with Silastic.

It's a must do mod which will make a huge difference.

The thing to remember about HID upgrades for driving lights or headlights is that they lose quite a bit of light output the more you switch them off/on while warm.
Hot restrike is the quickest killer of HID lamps, so if you frequently have to dip your driving lights when travelling because of oncoming traffic, it is best to keep the halogens.
Some HID lamps also take a while to get to full brightness which can be an annoying delay.

Re:


I'm not a fan of HID and my driving lights are mainly used for highway driving on country roads. I hardly do offroad night driving. If I need more lights for offroad night driving, I'll get light bars instead.

I think someone else loved my lights too because last night, they stayed behind me for over 200km and they only overtook me when we got into town.

That would have drove me nuts seeing their lights in my rear view mirror for that long, I would have let them pass for sure LOL emoticon

As long as they weren't tailgating I don't mind. I think they were a bit too lazy to constantly switch on and off their high beams for incoming vehicles. lol

That seems eminently sensible.

If the car or truck in front of me has decent lights and is traveling at about my preferred speed, then I also drive on their lights with mine on low beam and use them as the 'road-sweeper' to warn me of bends beyond my range as well as using them to clear away any wild critters who might otherwise have a fondness for my particular radiator.

There are 2 access holes in the firweall on each side of the car, one behind the brake pedal if you remove the floor carpet slightly you should be able to see it and the other access hole is behind the passenger side glovebox.

Re:


Just had a look there but i cant see anything under the brake pedal, i pulled back a fair bit of the carpet.

And the glove box side im guessing i would need to remove the entire inner part of the glove box to see the hole behind it?

Im thinking of mounting the swtich beside the 4wd centre switch so what way do you reckon would be the handiest to get the cable up there?
Also in each case are the holes really small?

Thanks again
