nice , looks very good , i love a black X , those lights bring it out, what did you have before? i had the amber corners & it was a huge change for me , how did you get the AE's to work without the low beams or parking lights on ?? mine only come on when low beams are on , & what kind of setup is that on your fogs ?

I ran the trigger wire to my rear (tail light) parking light, so that the rings turn on with the parking lights. I think it was the purple wire... I'll take a pic if you would like to see. I also ran the wire to the light under the driver side kick panel so that the rings turn on with the lock/unlock on my remote.

I previously had amber reflectors and this is a HUGE difference, to me. Even the light output looks better. I converted my fogs to HIDs, but the low beams are so bright that I don't think that I would ever use the fogs.

It could be your low beam ballasts, or maybe even the D2S bulbs themselves.

One of the ballast on my fogs is bad so i need to remove the headlight again. I'll do a write up when i get new ballasts. It was very easy to do. When you run a wire through the fire wall (for the remote on/off) you just run a second wire long enough to reach your rear tail lights. The hard part was tucking all the wire.
