Install Q for Habbie ;)

So my Depo headlights and HID fogs go in tomorrow(!)

My question has to do with fuses; do I need to increase the size of any of them?

Thanks Habbie,



Scott

He actually called me while I was doing my install and advised me not to change any of the fuses stated in some diy's out there. I am not exactly sure of the reason he told me but I think it was something like the Hid's actually draw less power than stock lights.

+1
no need to up the fuse Scott, stock fuses are just fine.

no, some of the lights don't work and need to be exchanged.

be more specific, usually its install or wiring error and you can trouble shoot and fix it on the spot. you can always send him the vendor an email.

PM and E-mail have been sent several days ago hence I wondered if Habbie was away; all other previous communication was very prompt..

according to the installer the driver module is bad for the halos on the pass side and the low beam HID driver has an issue as well.

Tests were done.

These things happen; need to exchange the depo kit for a new one.


I had this done at a reputable auto shop that does a lot of BMW etc. work here in town.
