I’m going to convert my halogen h11 fog lights to some HiD lights. Bought a kit and can bud cancellers and hoping it works.

but my question is.. has anyone installed more fog lights on the blank recesses? ( see pic)

That recess is not blank, thats a radar sensor for your adaptive cruise control. You sure don’t want to mess with it because once you do, all your cruise control is gone. Along with front assist.

Ask yourself, why has no OEM equipped their fog lights with HIDs, even luxury brands?

HIDs don’t work well for fog light applications. Light is scattered too much and makes them useless in poor weather conditions.

Convert you existing fogs with LED equivalent bulbs. No need for a can bus cancellers (whatever they are).

HID is old technology LED isn't.

Use a decent brand like Osram or Phillips. I must admit I used a cheap set off ebay and they work very well but it could be a bit hit & miss.

Ok good call.
there are so many on the market. Think I’ll do a trial
Of a Philips Crystal Vision and an LED style.
