HIDKitWarehouse 3000K HID Kit
Its time for another great product by HIDKitWarehouse (division of Paradox-Systems) this time around its lighting equipment. HID stands for High Intensity Discharge which you will usually find on high end luxury cars. HID headlights are not very common yet, but they are likely to become the norm because they produce more light than normal headlights while at the same time using less power. High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting technology replaces the filament of the light bulb with a capsule of gas. The light is emitted from an arc discharge between two closely spaced electrodes hermetically sealed inside a small quartz glass tubular envelope capsule. To operate, they require ballasts, which supply proper voltage and control current. Paradox-Systems has stepped up the game and is now supplying Maxima owners the ability to upgrade their lighting equipment with the latest and most advanced technology.

Sockets and Wrenches
Jack Stands (Optional)
It is highly recommended that you disconnect the battery prior to installing this modification as improper installation could damage electrical parts!
If your car is heavily lowered on coil-overs or springs it is recommended to lift the body of the car slightly with a jack to ease installation. The install is rather simple and can be done with minor tool supplies, be sure to double check connections before you complete the process. You will need to start by applying pressure to the top most edge of the fog light which secures the cosmetic piece, it will come out. Removing the cosmetic piece will reveal a single 10mm which needs to be removed to allow the fog light assembly to come out of its mounting bracket. Undo the harness and pull the assembly aside.
Installation Process: HID Installation
Now that you have the fog light assemblies aside, remove the dust cap from the rear of the assembly and undo the positive and ground wires from their assigned positions. Remove the factory H3 bulbs by applying even pressure to both ends of the mounting spring and moving it aside to allow the removal of the bulb. Installing the HID bulb is the reverse, however, being that the base of the HID bulb is slightly larger the spring has a difficult time making its way around to secure the bulb down... Don't worry it will secure you will just need to apply some force and it will get locked in. To secure the dust cap, tuck the factory wires into the dust cap and route the HID bulb wires through the notched edge of the fog light assembly. If you hadn't noticed yet, the 12v fused harness supplied has male ends which will most definitely not fit into the harness you removed in the previous section. This step is up to you but I decided to snip enough of the brass connectors so that they will fit snuggly into the OEM harness and secured them with a load of electrical tape. If you are a bit confused at which wire goes to which port pull back the liner and you will see black to black and red to red/yellow. Connect the water tight opposite end into the ballast and mounting the ballasts are up to your discretion. The remaining ballast-bulb connections can now be secured and tucked away nicely. Reinstall the fog light assembly and proceed to the other side, repeat.
Excellent light output
Excellent build quality
Easy to install
Harness modification necessary
These are by far an excellent product, if I were you I would suggest opting for the Digital Ballasts to give you that peace of mind that you need with a product like this. Great product from a great business man, Harry from HID Kits Warehouse is the man!
