    I would replace with HIDs. I did it on mine with 55 w 4300k to match the factory bulbs. Lots of light:-)

    Hmm i'd love to do this. What size bulbs did you use? Did it fit flush or did you have to seal with high temp silicone? No issues with melted fog housing? The housing for the fog lights just aren't meant to withstand high temps. Do you leave them on all the time or just put them on sometimes?

    I used H10 55W digital HID. Nope all plug n play. This kit runs very cool. So much so that it is cooler then reg bulbs.

    Those HIDs look like 8000K. They are at least 6000K! I did the same thing, but I love it at night...

    I got 5k HID fog lights but my pic turned out just like that




    HID's in the fogs and SMD-LED's in the parking light's.

    I used ddmtuning.com 55w 6k HIDs in my fog. I have used them for other vehicle and lifetime warrenty. Hids run cooler per watt than regular bulbs & use less power

    I went with v-LEDs on my DRL and my fogs. The fogs were plug and play. 6k on the temperature 28 LEDs and they match my led parking lamps, DRL, and my factory HID'S
    I get flashed by people with there brights all the time. Pretty bright and they absolutely will not get hot enough to melt any thing. Very happy.
