LED Fog Lights

I've been hunting down a pair (H11 for msport bumper) but can't find any recommendations in this forum or anywhere else. Looking for ones that don't throw error codes.

Any tried and true LED recommendations?

I have these on my car. They look great. Match up perfectly with the OEM halo lights. They did occasionally trigger the error though. I coded it out with the Carly app on my phone.

These are by far the best fog light bulbs I have ever had. They include a lifetime warranty and match the factory xenon lights perfectly! Yes, they are a little pricey but definitely worth it!

The resistors work great and I have never had any codes!

I did not throw any codes but my fogs did flicker during startup. All I had to do was to get it coded, now the flicker is gone.

I have the flicker as well, I can code them out. But everyone has told me it looks cool when my fogs flicker so I have just left it!

I bought these after a recommendation from someone here and they match my Lux H8's perfectly. I have had them a year with no issues. I used Carly to address the codes.

Did you purchase these with a resistor? or just plugged in and coded the error off?

I can't find the exact ones I bought a few months ago, but they're like these, just a different color: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B071DBWWC8 I have an extra set, if you're interested. They have built-in resistors instead of the separate plugins, and I don't have any codes or flickering on my car. Ymmv. They match my D1S perfectly.

The WeissLicht's do a horrible job of projecting light onto the road, and they say so right in their description. So they are a lot like those glue on hood scoops, pointless.

On the other hand, TRS sells the Morimoto LED's which are designed to work with the factory reflector and they put out something like 3500 lumens each.

Inside selective yellow lenses (to cut glare in rain, fog & snow) they still put out a TON of light.





You can order them with inline resistors and you'll get no codes. I simply coded out the bulb check.

Bought these a few months ago. Look great and match the factory angels. There is an error code and I plan to code it out but not bad for $32 shipped!

I have these as well and can vouch for them.. Bright af.. And I like the yellow fogs since they add contrast to my 160w TGS halo's..

Does anyone actually use forglights? Or are y'all just busy dressing up extra lights?

You clearly don't live in a place with heavy fog or 7 months of heavy sideways rain.
