Is it easy to install HID foglight by myself??

I just got a set of HID for my foglight and I know how to install HID on my headlights but it's seems tricky to install fogs HID...

Should I just bring it to the shop?? cuz I might have to take the front bumper out...

Is there any DIY guide for HID foglight installation??

Also I heard that direct connect thru battery is a good installation.. I have done HID installation with a wiring harness but have no idea what is direct connect thru the battery...???

You have an M3 bumper right? You don't need to take the bumper out. If your arm isn't too fat, you can actually just reach in and stick it on the inner fender liner.

as mentioned before, with the M3 bumber you can do it simply by going under the car. parking it on a curb can do the trick (thats how i changed my bulbs)

damn... yesterday I tried it...

college park underground garage is damn cold!!!! I gave it up since I can't really see anything behind the fog area. I might just take my car to the shop.

yea, I try not to work on my car when it's -5 outside.

BTW, you might wanna just hook up the HID's before you go to the shop, just to make sure they work without error code cancellers or anything.
