Hey guys, I'm an active user on Acurazine (Frosty), but I figured I'd share this with all of you as well. First, here's a few pictures of my ride.
My search for LEDs started after I became sick of the Nokya Hyper Yellow halogens that I had in both my upper (factory) fogs, and my lower (Inspire) fogs. I was just tired of the yellow, JDM-look in general. So I originally planned on getting white LEDs for the upper fogs, and white HIDs for the lower fogs. I knew the upper LEDs would never be as bright as the lower HIDs, but putting HIDs in the upper fog housings really isn't a viable option.
There are quite a few LEDs that will fit in upper fog housing of the 04-06 TL, and the DRL housing of the 07-08 TL, but I would dare to say that I've found the absolute best one out there, both in terms of color, and brightness. I stumbled across it while searching on a popular lighting site among this forum, and they were listed for nearly $100. They caught my attention because they were new, and the specs looked quite impressive. I was able to find the same LEDs elsewhere for a much better price, and decided to give them a shot.
The install was a piece of cake- a simple plug-and-play design.
When I turned them on for the first time, I literally thought I had turned the HIDs on by mistake- that's how insanely bright these things are! (4800 lumens)
Upper fogs / DRLs ONLY
I was so impressed with these LEDs, that I ditched the idea of getting HIDs for the Inspires, and bought another set of these instead.
Lower Fogs ONLY
Two days ago, one of my factory HIDs burned out, so while I wait for my CBIs to arrive, I've had to use only my upper and lower LEDs to light the path. I've had no problems whatsoever. I forget the HIDs are even off.
Upper Fogs / DRLs and Lower Fogs ONLY
These LEDs matched my factory (color-shifted) HIDs quite well, but they are a PERFECT match for the CBIs. I convinced my brother to get a pair for the fogs on his 2011 335i (which also has CBIs), and they couldn't be a closer match. My mom also got a set for her 2011 SRX fogs. :toocool:
These lights are so sick, I just couldn't keep them to myself. After purchasing 4 sets of these LEDs, I was able obtain a discount code from the seller and he said I'm free to share it with others. So you guys can get them for an even better price than I did! The code gives you 20% off AND free shipping.
