Default I Just Realized...

Our cars don't have running lights, do they? Isn't that supposed to be a standard safety feature? Also, how hard could it be to wire up my fogs to run independent when I turn my parking lights on? I've seen some cars with that look.

Only a law in Canada. And you can run the fogs separately that's how I had mine hooked up. To do it the right way while being able to use the stock switch check: www.kptechnologies.com

The DRL does not activate the HID's. DRL are the above the fog light projector in that clear square on the 04-06 Canadian models.

I'm only buying quality parts for my car, don't want to drop the bumper every year or year and a half.

I had a thread about that a while ago

http://my6thgen.org/f276/independent-fog-lights-13340/

Apparently you can get a kit from pepboys or you get the kptechnologies kit which requires you tap into the BCM. I ended up not doing either but if you figure it out then I might look back into this idea..
