Re: 2014 Halogen Bulb Upgrade!

On this board - Yes! Do some searches. We've had many people install the XenonDepot Xtreme H11 HID kit in the WK2 fog light.

Re: 2014 Halogen Bulb Upgrade!

Gents..

I put in the Philips Xtreme Power (H11) and tbh, it does make a nice, noticeable difference. The range of the light is slightly better, but the the actual projection of light def makes things brighter. The light is much whiter and that equals brighter... Even the wife noticed!

That's no good, I think you need to replace that housing and avoid the bulbs.

From what I've read from the other people that have done that mod, it's pretty rare for that to happen.. I wonder why everyone doesn't have that problem.

Re: 2014 Halogen Bulb Upgrade!

Your stock halogen bulb is a low-wattage bulb (I believe only 3W). The bulbs in the HID kit burn more like a 55W bulb which is probably why you're seeing what you're seeing.
