Re: '14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

Thanks! I was trying to look up by 5000k like a dummy. No wonder I couldnt find it.

Re: '14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

What all was involved with this installation and how long did it take? Did you need to purchase additional resistors or was it plug & play?
