LP fogs (True Plug and Play LED) for the New Gen Focus

Greetings Focus Peers!


I personally spent some time building these custom fog-lights, currently on the market synonymous to this are the "ROSTRA LED FOGS"
Definitely something great, but I wanted something different with my own pizzazz! Also, I wanted to retain a clean "Blacked-Out" look!


It's becoming quite clear that LED and LASER technology are the way of the future for automotive lighting. HID's are still the go-to for best bang for your buck lighting performance and even come stock in many high end vehicles, however- they're soon to be outdated as times progress. HIDs are extremely bright and are much more efficient than halogens, unfortunately cheap aftermarket, mass-manufactured setups that are imported overseas at low cost give them a bad rep. The best HIDs go for at least $175, even with this mid-grade pricing, sometimes- though very rare, they do have a chance of failure- whether it is the HID Bulb, Ballast, or possibly even the harness.


When building these, I wanted something that was a quick replacement, a true plug and play. I also wanted them to be extremely efficient- low power draw and premium efficiency. I did not want to have to deal with placing the ballast in a strategic position and worry about if it would hang/fall from a non-secure position. With this in mind, I came up with a TRUE LED foglight setup that was an easy swap and play setup!




Highlights:
DIRECT PLUG AND PLAY
Low current draw with an opposing High Lumen Output
LED reliability
Completely waterproof
Extremely Bright

Specs:
Power: 9 Watts
Current Draw: 0.7 Amps
Color rating: 4500K


















Also... Went creative and decided to make a version that could have laser led halos

All finished up and completed with bench-testing!

The fog lamps are identical between the models, so as long as these mount up the same as the o.e.m. Valeo units they should work fine.

I didn't have to change the foglamps when I had changed the front fascia over on my last Focus.
