Can you do a pic from the inside looking out of the headlights and then the headlights with the fogs?

Awesome picture brother. Thank you so much for this review. By the way it was really nice meeting you!

Neal I will be posting the pics comparing the two tonight. However there is a noticeable difference between the 20 watt CREE I carry and these new ones.

I've heard this before lol. What about heat with these? Any concern of the housing melting...

LOL well my battery died last night. No excuse tonight! :rolleyes:

These actually put out hardly any more heat than my 20 watt version. 100% will never melt anything!

I just put them in and tested them I haven't actually driven anywhere with them on yet but I'm assuming they wouldn't produce that much heat seeing as they are led. If they were and hid bulb with ballast they might put off some heat but I doubt these will. I can let you know in a day or 2

Here are the comparison pictures and a video as well!

I went ahead and covered up my headlights so we can focus on only the fog lights. I also turned off the town house's outside lighting while doing the pics and video.


(When watching, make sure to select 720p HD Video where available) ^


In all of the pictures below, my 20 watt CREE LED Fog is on the passenger side, and my new 80 watt CREE LED is on the drivers side.

Looks great. In your first pic though looks like a police cruiser front end in the foreground of the pic. What did you do David? Were you being a menace?

Thank you David for the nice pics and definitely see the difference, even though I'm still waiting for my LaminX film cover to be shipped here next week and now you really got me thinking about this one really hard :D. Wish this was available and on sale during the Black Friday or I jump on it in a heartbeat :p

You're very welcome Joe, I think the difference is very noticeable. I know sorry about that I wish they were available then as well.

Of course Jared there's no rush. Let me know whenever you're ready and I'm sure I'll still be here. ;) BTW let me know once you get your HIDs installed.

Thank you! No I did not have this product during the Black Friday deals.

No need to apolgized my friend, sale or no sale if I really wanted it then I will definitely grab them from you. Please give me some time to think about it because its a tough decision between the yellow fogs or this new one you're carrying.
