    did ya happen to see this?
    Bulbs are larger than stock, please check clearance and fitment before purchase. On some models, bulb dust cover may not be used.

    @lymerock , the Phillips must be larger than stock also. The PIAA doesn't look all that different in height from the Phillips brand. What is the Phillips brand size?

    tbh, I havent even touched my fog bulbs so no clue if they are standard sized H8/11's or what. I was just surprised that I saw a warning message. 44mm doesnt seem very long, but at the current price point its a bit of a risk to not at least measure first.

    Another possible issue with the PIAA's.
    On the PIAA website the detail photos show the flat base of the bulb has the cooling fan intake. If the base of this bulb is up against the side of the enclosure for the RS foglight, then not much chance for cooling airflow. Probably a good way to smoke some expensive bulbs.
    Probably won't fit anyway, but we do need someone to measure the base on the Phillips which just fit.

    I have the auxbeam leds and although they're 6k and the stock hids are somewhere around 5-5500 they look great, no wonky uneven light output, install was a breeze and the bases fit snug against the housing so moisture buildup shouldn't be an issue (that was one of my concerns)
