So happen to notice last night i have a fog light out.Was thinking about replacing them with some leds or somwthing along those lines.But cant seem to find any at all here in orangeville had a hard time just finding reg fog lights cept from the dealer.So was wondering if any one had done something like this before an where abouts is a place or places that sell them.Perferable around the brampton miss area but would travel farther if i had to.So if anyone here knows a place that sells them please lemme know as i would like to have this fixed asap thnx again

PM me for a local supplier. He attends most of the car shows in the GTA and will install there or often will do it at your place. Awesome product and incredible after sales service. Have rarely dealt with a better guy.

I will get his contact info ready once I get to work.

If you want just LEDs for the looks then good ole EBay my friend. That's where I got mine from. Just have them to match my HIDs. They're a pain to change though.

These are currently the most powerful LED's you can buy for the fog that I'm aware of. Yes they are pricey but the best always is. Now these won't match HID for lumen output but they will look 1000 times better than stock and should last much longer. You can do a search on LED H16's and get thousands of hits on ebay. Just make sure you get one with the front facing projector, otherwise light output is terrible. Good luck OP!

Those cree LEDs are somethin else. I got one of those BlackFire LED flashlights, and for just one wee little bulb on a circuit board, the bugger is BRIGHT!!!

Okay kids, ignore the price for a moment. 30W. Will these melt the housing?

It's only length that matters. Get shortones and your wattage, within reason, is irrelevant.

I dunno about that, I ran 55w HID setup in my stock fog lights for over a year with no issues. But i started to notice that one of them fog lights started to melt. NOT the lens but the housing around the base on the bulb so length wouldnt matter. When i did my install i drilled a small hole in each fog light housing on top to vent the heat i think thats why mine lasted that long.

Didnt you get water in the lens when you drilled the holes??

OP, were you asking about the heat of the LED's? I'm fairly sure heat won't be an issue with any LED.
