About to order some lighting upgrades, just wanted some quick feedback

OK so I'm going to replace the low beam, high beam, and fog lights with HID and/or LED. Option 1: HID low beam and LED high beam, and LED or yellow halogen fog light. Option 2: all LED

Now with option 1, I know the most critical thing I'll need to deal with is preventing flicker. Therefore, my plan was to run the DDM Tuning Plus Canbus kit (in 4500k). Any feedback on this from anybody? A did quite a bit of searching and I found that people have used this, but not sure of the long-term. For high-beams, I thought I'd go with the DDM Tuning Sabre, Hikari Tuning XHP50, Auxbeam (not sure what model yet), or Innovited (not sure what model yet.) Still not sure what to do with the fog lights. I really want a deep yellow in there, but LED's don't seem to go that low in Kelvin. Plus the 5202 / PS24W doesn't seem widely available. Ideas here (preferably Amazon Prime suggestions) would be great.

With option 2, I'm still seeking the absolute best available (say $100 or less) front low beam bulb. The H11 we use is what most cars use for a fog light! Also, I absolutely want the dust covers to be reused, so I'm still seeking the right fit option. Advice here based on real-world would be great.


I plan on ordering them tonight, so hopefully some quick feedback will come in.

I went with the DDM Tuning H11 low beams, 9005 Hikari, and Imosontec 5202, couldn't find a yellow 5202 I liked. We'll see if I did that right in a couple days.
