The Kia Forte uses an H11b bulb, unfortunatly there is no H11b kit available anywhere, so you have to buy an H11 kit, the only difference is the way the bulb connects to the factory harness. There is NO total Plug and play kit available, it will take some modifing to make an H11 Kit work.

I had to cut the h11 plug off, and crimp on some male disconnects. I have heard that if you tell DDM that you are ordering their H11 Kit to work on an H11b setup, they will do something to the kit, im pretty sure they just dont put on the bulb connector and just leave the ends.

Here is the thread for my install.

Like I said, if you tell DDM that you are going to be using them in an H11b setup they wont put on the bulb socket and just leave the wires bare so you can stick them into the factory harness.
