I think both the H7 and the H11 they have 2 straight terminal connectors like the number "11" may be the diff. is the base circular area in H7 fits perfectly the sportage holes, and no glue or drilling is needed.
"YES" you can do both high and low beams and FOG as well. In fact, PLP is 100% correct regarding priority, importance and which to apply... At first I saw some owners had HID on their High beam but I thought it will be a short term application, like flashing or highway signs showing or on very dark situations... so i preferred to use Bright Halogen bulbs 420W on the high beam instead, like Hella Optilux XB or Sulvania Ultra. it'll give you a strong white with little blueish (8000K) but very slight yellow line on top that cannot be seen ! its beautiful. (but be careful that these bulbs get extra hot... and since t's a short application so will there 'll be no probs.
For me i have Low
beam HID 8000K 55W Bosch
, and Fogs
are 8000K 55W 3D
, which I consider GREAT for highways and tarmac surface enlightening for any irregularity.
HID on Fog lets feel happy and passion to drive, you get clear sides too, its really awesome. But as PLP said, (I really appreciate his words for the information, Thanks PLP !) the white bright in the foggy days, may affect your front vision, but the Yellow light spreads like crazy in fog ! I really don't know why !?
I believe the solution between having HID bright Fog light (for most clear days) and having excellent vision on foggy days, is to temporarily replace your Fog bulbs with 3000K "True Yellow" which is best for Foggy weather, so I plan to keep a set of 3000K bulbs for such cases.
