Question C300 w204 HID Fog Lights upgrade!

I have a c300 sport, and was thinking of upgrading my fogs to HID but when i pulled the fog lights out, i found that there is a socket on the back of the H7 bulb. I guess it was to avoid water. But now i can't install the HID kit, if anyone know how please let me know. Thanks!!!!

I will post pics up so you can see what I did. I didn't have to cut any wires but drilled two hole through the socket that was holding the OEM headlights in place. That was the easier way to get it done, plus I didn't want to cut any wires (that might void the warrantee).

Here's a pic of my HID 10000k Fogs, if anyone upgrading make sure you get the 55w HID kit otherwise the ECU is gonna auto shut off. I had to find this out the hard way, now i have an extra set of HID. hehehe....... good luck all!!!

I got the kit from eBay, but my car came with xenon headlights already so don't really know the bulb type for that. The fogs are H7 and make sure you get 55w kit otherwise it won't work.

How come you can't use H7 35w HIDs for fogs?

You will need the 55w kit, because the 35w won't draw enough power so the ECU will give u a fog lights out indicator then won't turn on at all. I had to find that out the hard way. GOOD LUCK ALL!!!!!
