UPDATE (2 July 05):
Finally those long awaited night pics, click the link below to see the night pics.
Its been said before but I have to say it again, the pics just don't do it justice, in person the setup is totally sweet. The lights are actually a lot brighter than I thought, and not purple at all. To tell you the truth, I think they are 10K bulbs not 13K. The box that the kit came in only showed 6500 - 10K. On the invoice it said 13K but I suspect they are 10K.
Also, for all you skeptics, I developed a very simple aiming system that works great, I updated my install notes with the mod:
Basically all you need is a C clamp, a drill, and some longer 6mm screws.
Finally got all the pieces I needed for my HID conversion. I got a 13,000K HID kit and installed it in the aftermarket lower fog assemblies for the NA Sports bumper. Below are install pics and notes. My car is currently in the shop (brake pedal squealing) as soon as its back I'll post some night pics with the HIDs on as well as installation pics of the fog lamp switch. It is a pain to post pics on here, so click the following link to see the full write up on my cardomain site:
Also, I got the HID kit from the following site. The kit was $245 shipped, which is a great price, since I paid $405 for the same kit a yr ago. Also, I wanted to purchase a HID kit from one of the site sponsors, however no one was offering a temp as high as 13K. This kit is really high quality, its the same kit I've been using for the last 2yrs in my integrated fogs and low beams.
HID FOG Lamp Install
The following is a How To on converting the standard H3 bulbs that come with the Mazda 6s Sport bumper fog lamps to HIDs. The assemblies are not designed for HIDs so some minor modifications are required.
(Note: The following How To is for the Brightstar HID kit only, some or all of the steps may not be necessary for other HID kits. The Brightstar HID kit goes by many names, check the pics below to see if your kit looks similar to the kit in the pics.)
Take apart the assemblies and remove the stock bulbs. In the assembly there is a small tab that is designed to hook into the H3 bulb and hold it steady, while the screw on the other side holds it from the other side. The problem is, the HID bulb base is much thicker than the stock base, so you will have to bend the tab back and widen the hole. Make the hole just big enough for a small screw to fit in it.
Insert the HID H3 bulb into the assembly and screw the screws into the holes. You may have to slightly carve out the cutout in the base to get the screw to fit.
Cut a small rectangle out of the back of the top of the housing. The rectangle should be no wider than necessary to fit the base of the HID bulb through. Also, make sure to cut it parallel to the screw holes in the assembly. This will ensure the rectangle is in the correct orientation in relation to the H3 base.
Locate the rubber grommet that held the HID bulb in the original packaging. Cut the interior of the grommet so that it is wide enough to fit around the base of the HID bulb without expanding.
Run the wires from the HID bulb through the opening in the assembly base and press firmly on the base while screwing in the screws. As you can see, I much improved my installation technique from the first one to the second one.
Personally I connected everything and took the pictures below. However, in reality you probably want to go ahead and mount the fog lamps in the car, run the wires, and connect the switch.
