2013 Ford Explorer Sport Tint and HID Mod

Hey guys, I added 35% tints on the front and put in 4300k HID headlights and fog lights. Also put LED license plate bulbs. Did not really let them turn white when I snapped pics so more pics are to come. The fogs look TOO bright. Maybe put a slight tint on the fog light if its possible? Let me know what you guys think.

Agreed! The fogs are too bright you think just in how they look vs the headlights or you actually don't like the light output?

Thanks. Well I haven't driven it at night yet. I don't want to blind people. Standing at the front of it and looking at it looks too bright. I'm wondering if there's any solution to this. I want it to be the same color Maybe put a slight tint on it?

Looks good.

Does your right license plate light seem to direct the light more to the right instead of over the plate?

What HID kit did you use for your headlights? Could you link me to it? I really want to put a nice HID kit on the 13 we just bought. Thanks!
