I just replaced my leds with HIDs. The HIDs are so much better there's no comparison. Here's the two threads I've posted for both:

Installed HIDs in fog lights

Fog lights upgraded to high power LEDs

Has anyone installed these who have halogen housings and if so any pics?

From what I've gathered on this forum that you don't get a good result if you install HID bulbs in halogen (mirrored) housing and I'm not sure if I want to go endure the cost of finding projector replacement housings.

I've replaced my halogen fogs with 5k LED's from XenonDepot after seeing the info on this forum and have been really happy. I'm just wondering if anyone else has installed these LED's and are happy with the output, throw, etc.

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

Interested as well. I had v-led's in every socket except headlights in my 2012. How are they in a projector fog lamp housing? I know nothing with regard to output in comparison to HID, but is the pattern decent?

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

FYI.
Looks like Autolumination has a 4th generation version of these:
Headlights Fog Lights DRL LED Head Light Bulbs | Autolumination

If I had $130 to spare I would buy some for grins to match my JW Speaker LED fog lights, but we just bought a boat..

Bring on the spring!

Those are similar to the style I saw at SEMA. I am seeing more and more companies carrying them. The price is all over the place and I am willing to bet they all come out of the same building.

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a set.

do you think they are really getting 5000 lumens out of those things. the lumen rating is what matters and determines how much light it throws. I have seen so much lying in the advertising of the lumens everywhere I don't know what to believe any more. if you get them let us know what you think and if they throw any usable light not just a color match.

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

I would also be interested to see pics and your opinion on the light throw once installed. I checked VLEDs and noticed they have what appears to be a 2nd generation of these up on the site now.

H11 5K MT-G2 2100LM HEADLIGHT FOG LIGHT DRL
H11 5K MT-G2 2100LM HEADLIGHT FOG LIGHT DRL | 1 PAIR (PRE-ORDER ETA END OF APRIL) B/O - Bulb Type

I've said before the LEDs I have in my fogs make a big difference and look great and I am hoping the result would be the same in the halogen H11 headlamp.
