Any 1.5 or Gen 2 ?
I'll could buy a set of lamps off e-bay and work on them and then keep a swap flow going on. Depends on the demand.

Thanks chico!

Nope. I've been debating on changing to those yellow capsules. Either way I really need to clean the fogs. I'm also thinking of cleaning my headlights too.

**update

Postby Akfahad » Fri Mar 06, 2009 5:08 pm

Since all the links in this thread don't work anymore...I figured I'd update it since I just did it. Sorry I don't have any of my own pics, since I broke my camera, but I'll try to get the result pictures up soon. I used the following tutorial, which worked out awesome:
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/442543/15

Some of the steps won't apply based on what kind of capsule's you get. (and since its a different car, but some still apply) Here's a link for an example picture of the capsules:
http://hidtech.com/images/02154.jpg

I personally wouldn't buy the capsules from hidtech.com since after doing some research online, they've seemed to disappear. I was able to find my capsules on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150323405065&viewitem= (not sure how long that link will last tho)
If it stops working, I got them from "viperguy39." I ended up just using the yellow capsule and the metal base (I ditched the springs it came with). I cut the 3 "legs" off the base since I didn't want to drill into the foglight housing and secured the metal base to the yellow capsule using "Extreme Repair", basically a strong silicone. Once that was dry I secured the capsule/metal base to the housing of the foglights with gorilla glue and JB Weld (wanted to make sure that biatch wasn't coming off) Working great....

Oh, and thanks Ryan for answering some of my questions....
