people who put H.I.D's in headlights of cars that aren't designed for them are azzh0l3'z. Without a projector your blinding every driver coming your way. Either retrofit some projectors in their for HID's or don't do it at all.
Thanks, I'll keep this thread bookmarked for when I get my own Elantra. I thought it would be an easy plug and play process like almost any other car...i guess not!**BEFORE YOU ORDER YOUR HID KIT...**
After all the research (and a little trial and error) here is what works with the 2013 Elantra...
· 35W bulbs just don't cut it and the 881 (PGJ13) base never really fits correctly in the fog light housing. The H11 base fits much better (so keep that in mind when ordering your HID kits).
· I installed a 6000K HID kit using a digital CANBUS ballast. This will eliminate the flickering or the lights cutting out due to the cars computer detecting a wattage mismatch (no cancellation/warning resister kit needed as the CANBUS has it built in.)
My fog lights are awesome now! So bright and really lights up the road. The only problem now is the stock headlights look so yellow and dim compared to the HID fogs ... so not that I really care about how it looks, I am going to upgrade my headlights now because the light from the HID's make such a difference at night!
If anyone has any questions ... please feel free to ask... I think after all my trial and error and research I have become an Elantra HID expert...LOL
If you get a good ballast, they should be water and shock proof (one reason not to buy that cheap crap on ebay).the hardest part is getting to the bulb lol. after that it's all plug and play.
and of course there is a bit of skill involved in tucking all the wires and harneses and ballast so it looks clean. Just make sure if you are using a relay to put it somewhere where water won't attack it. Trust me on that one.
On most kits yes, however there are a few kits that are made specifically for CANBUS systems like those found in the elantra. I will warn you though, I purchased a kit that says it's for a CANBUS system and I still needed the error cancelors to keep them from flickering. So the only way you will know is to install them and then turn the car on to see if they work. You'll have to have the engine running for a couple seconds to know if they are working or not. When just the power is turned on, any problems there may be wont show themselves.So the warning canceller is required for the kit to work, correct???
