ok ok i get what you are saying now...

sorrowful, you need to forget everything you think you know about HIDs. your plan is not a good one. im not trying to bash you, but help you spend your few hundred bucks in a responsible and safe manner


first of all you are talking about getting a "bi-xenon" hid kit.

they are complete S***. do NOT buy an HID kit. especially one described as "bi xenon". a Bi-xenon hid kit employs 2 hid capsules on one base. the arc of the bulbs are wayyyyyyyyy far away from the focal point of the headlight reflectors.

basically this means the light output will look like complete ass. trust me. regular HID kits are crap. a Bi-xenon kit will be 1000 times worse.

6000k is not a good choice for color temp. 4300k is the optimal color to get, and 5000k is a close competitor. again, 4300k provides the most useable light on the road. this is why most cars equipped with OEM hids use 4300k.

as for your fog lights. i dont think you understand what high and low beams are. highbeams are NOT just a higher power or second bulbs that are lit. they need to be precisely aligned in the headlight to project the light higher and farther.

you cant get xenon bulbs in an h3 foglight bulb configuration. its physically impossible. so with that said, a bi-xenon h3 hid bulb is definitely not possible.

back to the headlights, a second hid capsule in the stock bugeye lights will not make a high beam. it will just make a double power S***ty lowbeam that glares every bit of oncoming traffic to the point where they will probably drive into a tree.


take my advice. do NOT make this planned purchase of yours. take the time to do some research of proper 2002 lighting modifications. theres plenty of good ones.

to start, here is a retrofit i did. it cost me around 400 bucks.

also look into hella ff1000 driving lights and hella brackets. they mount right up to the stock location and look great.

please read this. i know its long.
