I don't see the point in putting in LEDs that will be nowhere near as bright as yellow hids that are highly effective against fog. ultra bright or not

Even with my 8k hids in my halo headlights and 3k hids in my fogs on my voltage of my car never drops below 13.9 and that is even with my 800rms system hitting lows.

Hey chase, I have 5k's in my fogs and I also have 5k's in my uppers and with 35 watt 5k's in my lowers I cant see [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] LOL. I wouldnt be going cheap either if I where to convert to led's they'd be something from rigid industries or oracle lighting. We dont have a hell of alot of fog around these parts either LOL.

That's pretty odd. Halogen to HID is a major difference in output even with the scattered light. You have any pictures?


Yes, I still troll the 2nd gen even I sold my MK2

LOL I know with the lower ones you barely even noticed it maybe because it's only a 35 watt kit where as my top ones are 55 watts.

I can almost drive with my 35w 6k fogs by themselves.

Wow I typed a long response yesterday to this thread but FF crashed out and it didn't post lol. The just of it was:
LEDS are not going to come near the output of your hids. The reason your "fog lights" are ineffective in fog is because you don't have fog lights... anything higher than 4k is essentially pointless in the fog and can do more harm than good. Its like driving with your brights on which we all know your not supposed to do in fog.

Many members will call your lights ditch lights because all they actually are good for is lighting ditches. Even if you went to leds that were as bright as your hids and spent all of that money because they wont be cheap, it would be pointless and your fog driving would not improve at all.

If you want lights that improve your line of sight in fog then get a set of 3k hids. Yellow is the most effective color to cut fog. If you just want your fog lights for looks then 5k+ is fine... but if you want them to do what they are meant to do then go 3k.

I found a pic of only my 3k fogs on(= these aren't bright enough? lol

Fog lights are intended to light the roadway under the fog. They are indeed effective if they are aimed correctly. I have passed so many people with aftermarket fogs that are aimed high its ridiculous. I do like to use mine as cornering lights or ditch lights also.

Regarding yellow light and fog:
