    LED Fog light install

    After watching the other thread for a bit with no really clear answer, I bought these Phillips H8 LED 6000k lights to do the swap.

    I think they're a perfect match to factory. Install is easy, remove the bezel using a trim tool. You might be able to just grab it and pop it off, but I found the easiest way was to start on the grille side, then just work it off. It's only held on with clips:

    There's one torx screw to remove, then the whole assembly comes out. Counterclockwise twist the bulb to remove, then put the new one in. The Phillips has a pigtail on it, I just used the provided zip ties to tie it to itself to keep it together. It's not going anywhere in there. Just reverse to finish. Easy peasy. Results in daylight, new on the right, old on the left. I'll update it tonight with nighttime pics:

    Nighttime photos (which I suck at)!

    Crappy unscientific pictures but the color and brightness are significantly improved, well worth the investment for this mod in my book. The car should've come with these.

    If you could take a pic or two of the light output with out the headlights on(just fogs) facing the car, and looking out at the light pattern, that'd be great.

    I don't like the output these fogs provide. The 13-14 ST fogs put out way more light in my opinion.

    Looks great, good job. I definitely prefer the color temperature of the new. Are the standard fog lights an option on the RS or are they part of the base package?

    I dunno, that was the way my phone nabbed it. I think I had HDR on, so it caught the led off. They both work.

    Sure, I'll take some tonight. Fogs are standard on the RS.

    Definitely on my to-do list. For 125 a pair, I hope they last. Phillips is a good brand so I don't see why they won't.
