I was using the Phillips X-treme Vision LED bulbs before the SRT upgrade and liked them a lot. My decision to switch was more related to aesthetics but, by all accounts, the SRT fogs have amazing light output which sealed the deal for me.

I might be looking to sell my Phillips LEDs. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're interested.

Actually just placed my order for the SRT fogs today. Ordering the hid kit from xenondepot next. Just debating on whether to go with the 5000K or 65000K bulbs. Not sure which one will match the led fogs the best.

I do not recommend the phillips 5k extreme... had them and they were yellow compared to the fogs
I went to phillips 6 k ultinon.... don't recommend them as they make the fogs look yellow...If I get fed up enough, ill probably get 5k cbi's....just tired of spending cash on bulls..lol

I have been tossing the idea around about getting the cbi's as well. If I do I will for sure post pics and info. There is an ebay seller than has them now for $169 free shipping with best offer. I thought about offering $!50 and see what happens. They are legit bulbs otherwise I wouldn't be considering them

That is a poor picture for trying to show how the lights look. You can't even make out the headlights and the color temperature is probably off. You're misleading people.

CBI will not match the LED fog's at all until they are very burned in - hundreds of hours. My 6K ultinons are the best match I have found for OEM. If you want aftermarket, Morimoto XB35 in 6000K are a great choice. Just as good for less cash...

Now that's just for the bulbs right? I need a complete HID kit. Not sure I want to spend $200 for the extreme HID kit and another $170 for separate bulbs.

I disagree with you.

The picture was a screenshot from a video and was done intentionally to create blobs of light. From straight on its impossible with a camera to accurately depict the color by concentrating on just the bulbs. You would have to put the the lights on the ground and shot away from them rather than directly at them.

Here is a picture with just the fog lights on and a picture with the headlights on.

I own these, and you telling me my photos are deceptive knowing that I see them every day in person is like arguing that my birthday is not my birthday or something stupid like that

AImageUploadedByJeepGarage1462468967.609278.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1462468990.690730.jpgnd btw the original picture I posted is what others make the color out to be. I see white from behind the light others see blue looking directly at it. I have an extremely low Bmw and my wife was driving behind me and I photographed it from hitting the mirror

Granted this is not what regular height cars see but it's dead on in my mirror because of my mirror height to the headlights behind me.

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

Others do not see blue looking directly at it. Otherwise your lights would be blue. They will see blue when their eyes are at the very top of the beam - the cutoff. The cutoff shield produced a blue line at the top of the output. Pull up to a wall - see the blue at the center and very top of your light output? When their vision falls within that realm (something very common when in a car due to low ride height) they will see blue. This is why cars with HIDs will appear to have their lights flickering back and forth between warm white/white and Blue.. even other colors. That happens because the roads are not perfectly flat, and their light output is constantly moving around, up and down. That blue line at the top is going on and out of your line of sight causing that perception.

I have had CBI bulbs for 2 years, and 2 different pairs. They are not nearly the color your photo makes them out to be, and if they are, you either have 2000 hours on them or they are not CBI bulbs.

Photographing a blob is not okay when there is a 6000K LED strip surrounding the actual projector. Take a picture with PROPER shorter exposure and PROPER color balance and then get back to me. And even then, if someone does not view the photo on a CALIBRATED COLOR ACCURATE display, they will not see a true representation.

There are a lot of factors with viewing a picture on an electronic device. You have many areas for misrepresentation to occur.

I'm not trying to be an asshat, but lighting is what I do. I've been messing with lights on vehicles for nearly a decade, tried many different options, and spent a lot of money. If someone wants a pure WHITE bulb from the get go, CBI is not for them. My Ultinons are even a little warmer than the LED fogs.. that will change as the bulbs get hours on them, but my point is that the CBI is not as white as some people think... at the very least until you put hundreds of hours on them. So you choose between pure white from the start with slightly less lumens, or a slightly warmer white with higher lumens. That's just the way HID bulbs go my friend.

And to top it off, I have posted pictures (as accurate as I could get them - several attempts for the best shots, not just one pictute on AUTO and saying it's what they look like) here somewhere DIRECTLY comparing CBIs (old and new) to Ultinons and the fog's.

Hi Petey, I know we discussed this before, but I cant help but mention it again. I'm still concerned your fogs are just way too high. Those things are intensely bright in the beam and would not be pleasant at all for oncoming drivers, not to mention not nearly as effective for you as the driver. I know you said its your preference and I'm just basing it on the two pictures you posted, but if you have the fog beam aiming up at the same height as where the headlight beam is, those things have got to be painful for other drivers lol. Only reason I'm mentioning this is I do a lot of night driving and nothing is more annoying than all those shit boxes out there with headlights aimed into the sky, or people that are clueless and leave their high beams on all the time. All constructive criticism ofcourse

Not to mention dangerous. Do you really want to blind someone who is hurling a 3000-5000 pound piece of metal towards you at speed? For sake of example, if the head and fog lights are aimed to be at equal projection height against a wall in front of you, you would be blinding via the fog lights since they sit lower to the ground than the headlights.
