LED Fog Bulbs???

Artimus

Shortback
From what I've been reading, most LED's don't seem to have the light output to work as proper fogs! they're just for show. I want some that will light the kerbs on a foggy lane.

now I've seen some new 20W 4 chip Cree's on e-bay, does anyone have any experience with them?

In fog the last thing you want is a white light as the light will just scatter back at you, yellow is the best colour for fog.

Modern fog light housings are designed to project a flat beam, and seeing how they're low to the road on every car except some Mercedes ..scattered light shouldn't be an issue.

Sandra I'll pm t8ups for his advice immediately. Thanks.

Fitted the bulbs tonight, T8ups' s on the left, Ring Xenonmax on the right! The Ring bulb is brighter, but it's slightly yellow! I've yet to align them. ...opinions? Is t8ups' too blue?? they're bluer than my LED's & make my nice white Xenons seem yellow. :(

Here' a quick how to with pics for changing fog bulbs:

1. Remove the surround, just grip the inboard part of the blades as indicated below & give it a sharp tug toward you! The tab (circled) on the left side should be last part out & first part in when refitting.

2. Remove 2x screws (circled), rotate empty bracket from behind housing at white arrow below

3. Press clip into plug and wiggle free of bulb! unit is now free!

4. rotate bulb housing 45o anti-clockwise and carefully withdraw from lens housing.

refitting is the reverse! once the surrounds are properly aligned, they need a short sharp bang with the palm of your hand to get them to click back into place correctly. Remember the tab on the left (Pic 2) goes in first.

It took around 20 minutes in all, and I had to feel for a couple of the screws as it was dark outside. :thumbsup:

Looking good.

It is tricky getting everything to match colourwise, but it's pretty close. If you were being picky you could argue they were too blue, but not necessarily enough to stop it looking OEM :)
