Dont put 55w HIDs into the foglights of the cruze.Has any one put any 55watt hid's in thier cruze? I'm looking to get some 8000k but I'm not sure if the 55 would be that much brighter. Need some help deciding
Because cruze didnt have a seperate low beam.Fog lamps make a huge difference, even the incandescent types compared to no fog lamps at all. Always use mine, in particular in the city, where the standard head lamps have practically zero side lighting for watching out for pedestrians.
Should come as a standard accessory in the Cruze, never had a car before with such poor side lighting.
Standard bulb is 35 watts, and the interior has to be air tight just like the head lamps. If not, when the bulb heats up creates pressure, when they cool create a vacuum that will suck in moisture. When wet inside, get very poor lighting.
Fog lamps on my 88 Supra are metal with real tempered glass lenses. Cruze is all plastic. But replacement cost for the Cruze is far more expensive, figure this out.
Now you have me curious as to what you exactly did for this modification. Almost sounds like you have a four head lamp system with separate dims and brights, that also could be adjusted individually.Because cruze didnt have a seperate low beam.
Before I changed my headlight other driver always dime me (and my headlight was correctly adjusted). Now my low beam have great side lighting and excellent hi beam

Could agree with the author with some vehicles, but sure not with the Cruze, side lighting is terrible when making sharp turns in city driving. We can see pedestrians with the fogs on, cannot without the fogs. On the highway, not people but deer to watch out for.
