its all good man, im working with what i have and can afford at the moment...All this stuff was in my 98 Saturn SL2 and we bought my wife an impala so i took over the malibu and we sold the saturn. I dont really care what i drive as long as it gets be back and forth to work w/o too many noises and my wife gets the nice reliable car. I just like to mod cars and the car has tinted tails and thats about it at the moment but plan to do the HIDs, factory foglights somehow with aftermarket wiring and maybe a stereo but these new cars and the info center on the dash just make things more expensive

btw...what are HIRs?

The best on-the-web source of info on HIRs is at http://hirheadlights.com/ .

Note: They don't replace H11s, so you can't use one, alas. My 2000 used 9005/9006 bulbs, and so does the Grand Marquis headlamps in the Cougar, so I went HIR to keep the beam better focused on both cars.

ok, got time tonight so went to the Pops garage since its heated and mine is full of crap so here it is. Went alot easier then i was planning for...had apart and all back together after about 2hrs with mainly trying to figure out the headlight cup and there just wasnt enough room once the cap goes on to drill a hole and use the grommet so i notched the bottom of the headlight just enough to get the 2 wires through so here they are. Gotta adjust them a bit to my liking but here ya go...

Wiring harness on driver side i taped into for the signal wires of the relay harness and added a H11 plug so there isnt any cutting of factory wiring

Here is the H11 plug i added for the relay harness

Relay mounted(temporaily til i find bracket or another relay with bracket

Ballast mounted on brace

HID wires coming out of headlight

Lights ON...

2 weeks later the relay took a crap so told the company and they gave me a full refund for the whole kit and replaced it with a relay i had and still running with no issues

Next project is some LED strips i bought and plan to put them around the mirrors and have them as a turn signal like the older silverados

Can you post a picture of the light output? Specifically with the lights shining against a wall? I'm looking to do a HID kit as well and would like to see how bad the glare is before I get them. Thanks!
