Default HID Fog Light question

A buddy of mine just gave me an HID fog light kit that has the H11 bulbs. The set came with the bulbs, balasts, and the wiring. The HID's are new in the box and have never been installed.

My question is on the brand. They are from a company called Xentec. I dont know the color temp or anything else. What I want to know is this a good brand? I googled them and all I can find is Ebay listings for like $40 so I am a bit worried as to the quality. And is there a write up on how to install?

Xentec is one of the popular eBay brands lol. They will get the job done though. It should have instructions?

I did a quick Google search (at work so it had to be a quickie... Of course, nothing is WRONG with a quickie, but I'm just rambling...) and wasn't pleased with what I saw. Check this out: http://www.mobilehid.com/philips-review.htm There were other results mentioning early failures. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/light...onversion.html

But I also suggest you satisfy yourself with a search.

Well, thats what I figured. Im still gonna install them and if they fail Ill either put the OEM's back in or get a better kit. How about install instructions? They dont have them in the box. My friend who gve them to me got them for his Chevy Avalanche but didnt want to install them after he found out it was a PITA to install in his truck. As long as its an H11 bulb it souldnt be a problem right?

Usually the install by plugging in the wire leads from the HID kit into the socket of your fog light harness.

We have H13 hi/low lamps and I have no idea what the install looks like to accomodate an H11 HID lamp. Our fogs are H11's on the GT's.

I have OEM HID's in the headlights, I was installing the H11's in the fogs. Are they just plug and play and mount the ballast or is it more involved?
