As for plastic lense fogging up, there's this UV protectant called 303 aerospace. One application every three months keeps them from yellowing out. I almost went with the glass upgrade, but was worried about breaking. Plastic can be sanded and polished up. Glass you have to replace.

Does this 303 product work on heavily scratched lenses also?

John, I'm guessing the dual turns option does away with the fog light?

I second the recommendation for VXTuning. I have the "bi-xenon" headlights that look to the untrained eye like OEM HID's. The main difference is a bigger projector. They are different than the ones posted above which are the "retrofit" style. However, it looks like they are out of stock. When I purchased them, the options existed for glass or plastic lenses and various VXTuning or Morimoto add-ons, making the kit plug and play. VXTuning is about to release a "quad-xenon" option that replaces the high beams too, so that might be why the "bi-xenon" option is unavailable. They come with leveling motors and wire up to the OEM dimmer/leveling switch easily. I also bought the ECS fog kit but replaced the lights with Morimoto "universal" fogs that temperature-match the VXTuning HID's (they're both 5500K.) You can't tell in the photo though because I put yellow Lamin-X on them. For the fogs, you have to expand the bolt hole in the metal ears of the bumper inserts that come with the kit, but otherwise they fit perfectly. I plan on purchasing the quads from VXTuning as soon as they are released. If you want not just HID's but an OEM HID look, the bi-xenons (if they come back in stock) might be the best option. In some ways, they may even be superior. The projectors are 2.5 inches instead of 1.75 inches on the OEM version.
