Brightest replacement fog light bulb

Can anyone tell me what is a direct replacement fog light bulb that is very bright and preferably has that blue tone to it. Just FYI the brightness is more important than the blue tone that's just for a cool factor.

I'm not very mechanical so I'm looking for something that is an easy drop in replacement regardless of price

Re: Brightest replacement fog light bulb

2 choices really

1-jw speaker led housings-high quality, super bright but expensive. Plug and play. Xenondepot carries these.


2-HID kit-super bright...sorta plug and play. I suggest a xenondepot xtreme kit

Re: Brightest replacement fog light bulb

I'll be posting about a 3rd, cheaper, option here: H11 to H9 Conversion

You can nearly double the lumens with slightly higher wattage bulb... requires minor modification to the bulb. No blue glare but that doesn't do anything for visibility anyway.

Good info here if you want to learn more about lighting. Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply

Re: Brightest replacement fog light bulb

Brightest bulb you can get for the fogs is HID available in at least 6 different color temperatures...

The conversion kit is generally sold with a relay harness to direct wire to your battery, but if you want to plug-and-play, the stock harness will power the lamps without having to install the relays.

Check your state laws about color temps and brightness.

Looks great! Those are just plug-n-go LED bulbs? I'm going to have to find a set for my '14 Summit.
