Re: Whiter fog lights

I'm not doubting that there was an issue. I have just never had anyone mention it before and I literally just had a customer install them on a 2012 WK2. Either way, I apologize for the inconvenience.

Steve

I trimmed mine too after messing with it for about 15 minutes. Cut it and it fits perfect.

Re: Whiter fog lights

It has been common knowledge that the H16 needs to be trimmed for any application that uses the PSX24W style bulb. Many outlets now carry the PSX24W type in LEDs as the correct direct replacement fog light bulbs for the WK2 (and other makes that use that style like some camaros). Pull out the old ones, plug in the new, done. No modifications necessary. They are 6000K Cool White, 7.5 watt. There is also amber available. I would expect that the PSX24W LED will be offered by more and more vendors.

The OEM bulbs have a built in lens, so the LED visibility is functionally less effective than OEMs. These bulbs are for entertainment purposes only

Re: Whiter fog lights

Hi,
There is a backorder on the Arctic white nokya bubs in the H16 fitment. I'm pretty sure it was you whom I spoke with on the phone. Thanks again for your patience.

Steve

But is the light output (on the road) equal to the OEM bulbs?

Not at all, is more of a white glow than projected light like the OEMs. Just makes the fog light housing glow white.
Im going to try some lensd cree ones next so at least i get some useable light.

Agree, the LED foglight bulbs folks have been using are for entertainment purposes only, they are less effective lighting the road than OEM bulbs. OEM bulbs have a lens built in.

Shameless self-promoting post...
Check my thread on alternative fog lights.
I have PIAA 530 LED fog lights now installed in my GC:
OEM Fog Light replacement idea

There's a side-by-side pic and an install PDF on page 3 of the thread.

If you have OEM HIDs, these are 6000k so they might look a little white/blue compared to the HIDs (I believe OEM is 4300k).

Has anyone try the Nokya bulbs yet? If so, what are your thoughts on them and does artic white or cosmic white best match the HID headlights?
