where to install HID fog kit?

Can someone recommend me a good place around North York where I can install my aftermarket HID kit into my fog lights for a reasonable price?

Thanks

What's difficult about your install?

1. extend wiring from ballast to bulb (use correct gauge wiring)
2. extend wiring from ballast to existing fog lamp connector
3. splice bulb to connector through existing fog lamp cap
4. find good place for ballast and stick/screw on
5. plug everything in and if you don't have an LKM for fog warnings, yer all set

Optionally fix relay so you can high beam flash with fogs on.

What's your ride?

Both RMP and Bimmersport have installed my kits on e46 fogs before, if you're in North York RMP is probably closer to you.

How do you "fix your relay" to keep fogs on with high beams?

Have an e36? Here's one way: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?p=2613848

Depends on your car. For my e34, Focus, and Mazda3, it was slightly easier as it's just removing the relay and jumping.

Relay to the LKM. It's been a while, don't remember exactly. You can see it in this thread: http://www.bimmer.info/forum/showthread.php?t=35188
