Yeah, LED fogs that actually function are tough.

Even the PnP HID fogs that you see now are more for show than function (not to say they don't work, but the light isn't managed optimally b/c of the differences in halogen and HID bulbs)

If you want show, go HID. If you really are concerned about fog, retrofit a quality projector (don't buy an eBay projector fog housing) and be thrilled.

Id love to get a set of TL or RL projector fogs.

High-power LED lamps for offroading trucks are getting extremely popular now days. Definitely brighter than HID or Halogen. Look into some companies and you can probably retrofit it into a fog light housing.

Led fog lights.

I just put led fog lights and AEs into my car 2 days ago.

Got them for bmwled.com
Mustafa is great to deal with.

There are no error codes, but there is a problem when you start the car.
Meaning when the engine starts.

All the AEs and Fog lights flicker on and off anywhere from 4 to 15 times, at start up only.
The car is pulsing the circuit to detect burnt bulbs.
So far as I hear this is normal.
I also heard that this can be eliminated by coding your car to not to check them at start up.
(in the works to setting up and understanding NCS expert)

Hope this info helps.

AEs shouldn't flash on start up. At least mine don't.
