Hello

I will be purchasing a GM fog light setup (housings, harness, stock switch panel, etc).

I currently have 6k HIDs in projector housings as my primary low beams. There is a drastic cutoff on the sides, so making right turns by high curbs can be nervewrecking. I have great distance, nice cutoff, and overall I am happy, but I feel like I need more side to side closer to my bumper. I go on long roadtrips too (coming up in Sept) so I could use the extra light.

I am veering away from HIDs in the fogs because of heat and scatter. I got the projectors to avoid being to bright and annoying as well.
Old posts I have read here state that LEDs are more for looks. Those were posts from 2+ years ago, and I feel they have come a long way.
There are H8 LEDs of varying sizes. Most of them are 'straight' though, and do not have that 90 degree bend to connect to the wiring.

Will a regular H8 (without the 90 degree bend) fit?
I am hoping to double the lumens of stock, and not get too crazy. There are lots of very high lumen options I am not considering.

Please advise.
Thanks
Nick


I am also aware that there is programming needed to make the fogs work for a 2011. I'm hoping the trifecta tune can be tweaked to accept fogs.

Those are nice - but $130 amazon price is too rich for me.
Philips is great, and I have used their halogens and LEDs, but that's **** expensive.

Even if there is no 'bend' will H11 'driving light' leds fit properly provided there is space behind?
Thanks
Nick

That fog setup looks really nice, thanks for sharing.

How many watts/lumens per bulb are those EKlights?
I see so many on ebay and it's tough to pick out the 'good' ones, but I like those copper cooling wires I have seen.
They go up to 12000lumens, which A I don't believe and B is way too much. What I am looking at seems to be along the lines of 30/40 watts and 3000-4000 lumens (which I take with a grain of salt on accuracy).

Thanks
Nick

The EK light shown is a H8 and a direct fit?
Sounds like 1200 vs 800 stock per bulb.

Yeah, I definitely don't trust those crazy ratings. They had 100 watt sets, lol, like SPF 100 sunscreen, it is basically not real.

Very nice.

So will the H11 will be a direct fit though, correct? You said only the H9 needs trimming.
I'm looking for the direct fit.

Thanks
Nick
