Wiring Hellas to factory fog wiring?

Going to be trimming the bottom half of my front bumper soon.

I have the factory fogs, and I don't like the way they look hanging down when the bumper is trimmed.

I'd like to pick up a set of Hellas to stick on the bumper.

Can I just splice the Hella wiring into the ends of the factory fog light wiring or is the power draw too different?

If the Hellas in question are 55 watts, then you can splice right in without a problem. The stock fogs are also 55 watts. Anything higher than that and you need to run separate wires.

I would think you could wire in some HID lights since they draw less power besides HID's are so much cheaper than they use to be and yet so much more lighting
