Here's my 6k, but I don't like my fogs. I had to retrofit som housings that was a real PITA. Looks like you used your stock housing. Can you post a link to where you got yours?

Those look so nice. Are they a newly produced product? I remember the first guys that tried a 2007 HID kit had melting wiring issues.

So, I was thinking about adding converting a 2007 to HID, and was wondering if this kit/conversion has gone mainstream. The one other thing I happened across is the kit(s) listed here:

Any other alternatives?

The initial hidguy kits came with 35W bulbs, which melted the stock plastic foglight housings. The present kit (which I have) includes 25W bulbs and they seem to have solved the problem. I've had the 6000K HID headlight and foglight kits installed for almost a year and no problems whatsoever -- and I have kept a very close eye on the foglight housings.

Thanks for the update info, marsh. That's really good news. Here is my setup as of now:

- I have LED switchbacks for the turn signals that are housed in clear housings. They flash [amber-off/amber-off] during the day when the lights are off. When the lights are on they function as driving lights and function the following way: [white-amber/white-amber]. They are 6000K xenon-white

- I have LED fog lamp bulbs installed in the stock housings. They match the switchbacks whitish-bluish (6000K xenon-white) of the fogs.

- I have the PIAA lamps (high/low beams) installed in stock 07 housings, but the color is noticeably off from the other lights.

While the lights function quite well, my personal preference would be for a perfect (or near perfect) whitish/bluish color match on all of them. You would think that by now, the aftermarket would have developed a decent LED solution for the headlamps as well - even going so far as to develop aftermarket housings with lenses, and reflectors optimally suited for an LED application. LED headlight tech has been with us for a solid 5-6 years now, and it's becoming more "mainstream" with ever passing day. Probably just a matter of time before hitting the Mustang aftermarket. For now, the only option we seem to had is from HIDGuy.
