Best HID's fogs for E90 LCI?

So im tired of the crappy yellow fog lights on my car. What are the best HID plug n play kits that wont melt or brown the housing on a non m-sport bumper?The topic has been covered a lot after searching, but I have not seen reviews from the long run and some of the kits are not sold anymore. People gave the HPB kit a good review, but it says H11 type bulb and I think I need H8?

Thanks guys

UndergroundEuro's HID kits by far! Reasonably priced, very bright, plug and play with no flickering. Just note that 6k is pure white and 8k is white with a blue tint. I have a review on mine you can look up.

No idea??? I had the H11 hid fog in my car for awhile and they worked fine and looks no difference from the H8.

I've used the DSM ballast (1year) and new h11s (8 months) until I hit a raccoon and broke a bulb. Just ordered another set of 55w 6000k for $57.

use any HID kit, just make sure you have a error canceler or a canbus ballast (no codes).

H1 has an extra pin on the fitment, and you can make it work on h8 if you cut it off/ shave it.
Our Kit is very popular and will give you no issues at all.
