Also upgraded the fog lights.  Usually we go with Diode Dynamic bulbs.  This time on my truck I went with full Morimoto replacement led housings.  And Diode Dynamics changed their bulbs to a lower lumen but supposedly (according to them) higher output, better bulb.  We we're going to give the new one a try but they were back ordered for quite some time so I used it as an excuse to try something new.  Just like all of the lighting for the rear, these are VLEDs.  They are the Micro Evolution.  The stock bulbs were bad.  Barely noticeable when on and they looked cheap.  I wasn't totally against the color temp because it is more useable but we talked about it and wanted the cleaner look.  These match the stock HIDs nicely.

I thought I had a problem for a second.  I tried to cycle the foglights to see the difference and the drivers side stayed on.  It wouldn't turn off.  Then it worked fine and then it didn't again.  Then it dawned on me.  This car has steering responsive fog lights so when that is turned on, and the fogs are turned off, the side you are steering to will turn on.  Our road has a very slight curve to it.  So turning it off while on that slight curve left one of them on.

Looks nice.

How are the fog lamp bulbs on distance vs the stock bulb ?
- I have seen some that are great up close but fall way off at distance.

Just asking because of the price tag on them...

In this application at least, they are much better all around.  I don't drive the car everyday personally so my experience with it isn't vast.  I was however recently driving it at night and cycling the fogs and realized they did absolutely nothing beyond a small spot beam which seemed to be pointed a few feet in front of the car.  When I opened the garage door to pull it out at night to check them out, I flicked them on and they shined across the yard.  So definitely more distance.  Not sure if it scatters or how much it scatters the light though.

I am a little late here but I love the color temp and what an amazing difference. 

Thanks for visiting the Cafe, come back often.  There's always something new!
