Don't bother.

We actually have some quality LED Fog lights for other vehicle applications and as much as they do produce some good output, you still can't beat the HID's right now.

Give it another half a year to a year and maybe the LED technology will be better for fog light applications.

ledfogs

eventually i might consider a 9006 error free led bulb for my fogs if they become available. IMO it would portray a much better match to xenon headlights IMO than the current bulbs currently on the market. Not bashing other light manufacturers at all, but think the matching/contrast effect will look cleaner.

anyone ever notice the LED fogs on those new volvo XC70 or 90's? They have a subtle bright clean look IMO. Something like that with a focused beam/projection.

Just my 2 cents.
