The fog lights are much brighter than stock, great output for fog lights.

So I've had the LEDs in now for 6 months, replaced both the halogen high and low bulbs....no issues what so ever. Like I stated originally, had to lower the beams on low headlights. Great compliment to JW led fogs.

Did you go with the fan or fan less version?

You went with the 5k not the 6k, right? How about the color match to the fogs?

Man, the holidays are right around the corner and you can bet those are on my list!

And lastly, did you buy an adapter for the fogs or did you solder?

Thanks.

Re: What's the verdict on LED headlight bulbs vs. HID?

Replaced my low beams with some CREE LEDs and they look great but Flicker intermittently. Anyone have a line on a cheap harness to eliminate the Flicker? I have a 2011 WK2...

Followup from my last post in September...

"Fan" versions still doing just fine.

If you mean, can you use LED in low beams, yes, I have them installed and
so do others, as indicated in this thread, also have them in my high beams/
DRl and fog lights. I had factory halogen bulbs in all these locations previously
and i am very happy with my LED replacement bulbs.
