looked at trying to re adjust it, but the way the aem has its little tab and rubber mount for the pipe, it makes it face that direction.

Yea I had no problems with my CP-E intake, it is way above the fogs. The only thing I did have to do was unscrew the horn and move it to the other side of the bracket after installing the fog lamps.

Update:....I've got the fogs installed on the car, still have to find some place to mount the ballasts and ignitors, and fashion some sort of aiming system. The screws on the fog lamp assembly are aweful, the holes are way mismatched and the left one is almost aimed straight at the ground, I'm not going to hook up the wiring until I figure out a way to aim the lights.

I really wanted this finished before the 4th of July weekend, but its already here, may not get it done until next week since I'm going out of town.

Oh, and I totally screwed up mounting the switch, I was going to mount the switch in the middle of the center arm rest, between the two seat warmer switches, but after I drilled the hole, I realized there is less than 3/4" of clearance between the outter and inner pieces. So, now I'm going to have to get a flush mount switch and try to clean up the mess.

A 13,000K HID has less lumens output then a standard 3200K Halogen.

Pretty cool huh? I always have the option of getting lower K bulbs if 13K really turns out to be more trouble than its worth. Otherwise, the fogs will definitely be nothing but show.

Doesnt look bad, but its hard to tell how far they actually shine, is it better than the bulbs that came with the kit?
