    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    I prefer to use HOEN H11 55w for the fogs, amber V-Leds for the above/DRL part, and 194 LEDs for the sidemarkers vs standard bulbs.

    Order the $299 fogs/sides package today.

    V-Leds for the front turns - http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/P...70676-1-2.html + 3/6 load resistors

    I'll be disabling my DRLs. Apparently the dual white/amber type don't work well with our cars so I won't go the route.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    I bought Hoen H11 55w bulbs for my new Ebay clear fogs, but the connector/lamp assembly is different vs OEM. Bulb that comes with the clear fogs is GE H10 9145U 42W where the connector pins are spread farther apart .

    Off to look for brighter lamps that will fit.

    Going to give these a try: Nokya Arctic White 9145 Headlight Fog light bulb Stage 2

    They are very bright apparently; will adjust the fogs downward so as not to blind other drivers.

    Probably because it's the wrong bulb. H11 and 9145 are not the same, as you've now discovered. What led you to buy the H11 bulbs? I think it's H10 that shares the same connector as 9145, but I'd have to verify that before I actually bought H10s.

    Regardless of what brand of bulbs you buy, this page on Sylvania's website is very handy for figuring out what you need.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    I bought the Hoens when I was going to simple replace the bulbs in the stock fog housings which are different than the Ebay clear fog connectors. Now I am confused ... oh well. When they get here I'll know, the hard way.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    I like the idea of clear fogs and turn signals with amber bulbs - but I don't really care for the 70s-style lenses. I think I'd like lenses that are truly clear.

    The diffused lens does look a bit dated however the fog lights are pretty useless without that lens due to the way they are designed. With a clear lens you just get a scattered non directed light that distracts other drivers coming towards you.

    I didn't know that - but it makes perfect sense. Thanks!

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    Just ordered a set with the clear side signals. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to remove the side marker cover to replace it? I am trying to figure out what type of amber LED light to put in there and don't want to force the cover off.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    you have to remove the inner wheel wells and they unclip from inside the car nose. lots of simple work to get to. any 194 style led will work but go as low profile as possible so it fits through the side marker hole but behind the housing. do not force you must release from inside

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    Thanks for the info. I was looking at these lights http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/C...00672-1-2.html. Would they work or do I need something that projects light 360 degrees like these http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/C...1014-1-2.html?

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    actually side firing in your front markers is pointless. try these instead. front (top) is more suited given the bulb orientation in the marker light housing

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    ok, I was assuming that the bulb was mounted differently than it is I guess, is the inside of the housing a reflector?
