E90 LCI 3000K fogs

I am looking to get a 3000k HID fog light kit for E90 LCI. Anyone local (GTA) had it installed? If so what brand do you recommend and where you had it done? It would be awesome if you can PM me the details (price etc), if you are not comfortable posting it on the forum.

Issues with reliability and triggering codes?

Happy Holidays!

Get the HID kit (Canbus ballast) - "RSX model" and have it installed at Bimmersport for $80 cash

http://hidcanada.com/store/index.php...&products_id=4

Excellent customer support service (if any product issues need to be addressed) from Jason. He will respond within 24 hrs.

I had mine done 2 months ago.

Thanks! I checked out their website. Description of their HID products sounds amazing. With free shipping now, I think I will just get one.

did you get a warranty for the rsx model and if so, how long is it valid for?

I called Speedstar tonight. They quoted me 340 installed with tax in. Xenondepot only has 1 year of warranty. RSX ballast is slimmer in design and has just been updated. In short, HIDCanada seems to be a winner in both categories. Anyone has personal experience with Speedstar and Xenondepot product?

All that hid talk got me thinking. Lease on my Camry is up soon so I took the h11 w35 6.5k hid off.
question (2lazy 2search)
That kit will not fit my 328i right? which bulbs we use for low beam and fogs?
How much you think i can sell that Xenon Depot kit for?
Lastly, is the different running error free HIDs come from isntallation or the kit itself?
im thinking of ordering 3k kit and wanna install it myself.

thanks in advance
