my g6 has a 9040 light for the fog lights. What HID kit has been used to to make them HID's? can i use another light instead, such as a H11 or H9?

i can use a 55w kit if i wanted for the low beams and the h9 high beams? or should i stay with a 35w kit for all? sorry for all the questions, i am new to modifying my g6 and don't want to mess it up.

If you like spending double the money per kit then get the ones you posted. For 3 kits thats $300 :O

Personally, this is what I would do:

All DDM
- 35W 5000K lows ($40)
- 35W 3000K or 5000K fogs ($40)
- 55W 6000K highs ($50)
- (x3) Dual In/Out relay harness ($45)

totals $175, $125 less than the carid ones. You will have to pay for shipping, but it wont be $125

That makes a lot of sense. I just wasn't sure about quality between the brands. What is the difference in the raptor kit and the standard? it the raptor kit better or what?

The raptor is analog, the slim is digital. With the raptor kit you might get radio static when you turn your lights on.

what would you suggest for high beams/lows and fogs? I was thinking of 5000K for fog and low beams. i am not sure what to do for high beams. should i do 50000 55w for high beams or a different color?

i like my 5000K lows. Heres a nice crappy photo i took a while back. Gives you an idea of what the 5000k looks like.



Going higher in the Kelvin scale will give you more blue, lower more yellow.

If you are going to do 55W for the highs, I would do 1 or 2 color temperatures higher, since the extra power washes out the color a bit.
