LEDs For Fog Lights.

Has anyone replaced the stock fog lights with LEDs to match the head lamps? Are there compatible bulbs?

As does Xenon Depot I believe. There are several members that have done the bulb swap, others have added new units in place of the stock fog light itself.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Be careful which bulbs you buy. I bought these off of ebay and they are too large of a diameter to fit through the hole into the lens.

I used Xenon Depot's 30W CREE LED fog lights, purchased along side my Xenon Depot HIDs for low/highs. I recommend them, they match the HIDs and DRLs perfectly, and are plug and play. Definitely want to go with LED fog lights rather than HID fog lights, because of quick switching between "high" (shutter) and fog lights.

Did you have any issue with flickering? did you have to get the anti-flicker "kit"

What color did you get to match the rest of your lights? Looks like there are a few options...

I guess I should ask "5000k or 6000k" for LEDs. Which would match the stock lighting?

My main issue with the stock fog lights is that they are yellow compared to the white looking headlights.

When used in actual fog or even heavy rain, nothing beats a yellow bulb.
