I've been holding off on writing this review, as I wanted to be sure of the quality. It has been one full week since they have been installed, and the HIDs have not blown a single fuse (replaced to 15A). Further, the DEPOs have not fogged once. I drove them for two hours straight, in the rain, the first night, and saw no condensation inside. A week later in 90 degree weather with high humidity, the result has been the same every night. The housings of the DEPO appear well made and installed very snuggly. The Hella HID kit (Hella X5) also appeared well made, and the wires were very well insulated. The connectors were high quality, and everything fit very well. Tons of mounting options. Only pitfall was short cables.

Alas, I spoke to soon. I took the car for its first carwash since installation. Twas fogged shortly after. So, they don't fog in the rain, but they will fog if they go from off to on after being washed.....

by posting this, Im sure it will change, but after posting the second post, they have only fogged one other time, and it was in the same week. After a month I am fog free.
