Yes. Just get you a couple of side taps (also known as mid line taps, T taps, quick side connectors, etc) and go to town.

Not to go too far off-base, but one way to keep the headlights from clouding is to wax the lenses like you would wax the rest of the car. I've been using a 2-step cleaner wax plus a caranuba wax on my car (and all my lenses) annually since new on my last 3 rides and never had a cloudy issue. Obviously if your clouding issue has already started this won't help, but if you start it while the lenses are 'fresh' it should prevent the issue.

I really love the look of the eyes on the fog lights... can you buy those separately, or did the fogs and headlights come as a package?

A few questions.

Do the DRL's on both fog lights and head lights stay on when you turn your actual headlights on and high-beams on?

Did you make it possible to turn on/off the DRL's for both fog lights and headlights?

When you turn your fog lights on, do your fog light DRL brows stay on?

I'm mostly asking for legal purposes. I have terrible luck in life and know I would get pulled over at some point for having too many lights on at the same time. I know with added work, I could wire switches up to the driver seat so I can control everything but I was just wondering how you did it and how everything works with each other normally.

Thanks!

That brings up an excellent point. I know that in California, you're only allowed 2 auxillary lights to be running at any one time up front. Excerpt from the code:

Hey, sorry to bring up an old thread (joined the forum last week). I have these installed too but I had a question. Did you have to buy a new housing cap when you put the HIDs in? It has that H7 cover with the three pins that lock in once you turn the cover but fitting the HID bulb wires would obviously prevent the cap from fitting. Wondering how you got around this.

Also for anyone interested, if you don't want to do the jumper wire to disable the DRLs, you can just turn it off. There's an awkward combination you need to activate and it keeps the DRLs off. The high beams will still work. I'm new so I can't paste the link but search for "How turn off drl." One step isn't mentioned, which is at the end after you do the last sequence, you have to release the parking brake first then the brake pedal and turn off the car for about 5 seconds. Then turn it on as normal and as soon as you put it in drive, you'll notice the DRL's are now off.

If you want to disable the DRL's, you can just pull the DRL fuse. Simple and no jumper wire needed for the high beam circuit.

Hopefully, some new owner is driving the wheels off her right now! They got a good one.

I can definitively state that in my 2014 Sport trim when I pulled the DRL fuse I only had one working high beam. Trust me, I tested it by just pulling the DRL fuse first. I didn't just randomly decide to go the jumper route lol.

Sorry. Your car must be wired differently.

In mine, pulling the DRL fuse disables the DRL circuit, but the high beams function normally.
