So a bulb that gives better ground coverage while blending with the low beams better and thus eliminating the unlit zone is bad?

Not seeing your logic... but alright.

do you know what the function of a fog lamp is? Sharpest possible cutoff is a pre-requisite.

Guys, we are simply offering a product here. There is a whole world of internets out there for you to discuss fog light cutoffs. Please respect our support of the site by keeping your individual discussions elsewhere. Thanks!

Paul

I'm well aware of the function of a fog lamp, and considering that unless you rewire things they're on automatically with your low beams.
So quite frankly the sharp cutoff of a fog light is nearly rendered useless in heavy fog since your low beams will be causing glare... keeping you from fully using the fog light's output.

These LEDs, which are advertised as a cosmetic modification, effectively convert your fog lights to a hybrid driving light without the sharp cutoff or sometimes excessive side coverage. For day to day use in the majority of North America, thats great. They become an effective element in the low beam headlights of all those people driving around with their fog lights on constantly for no apparent reason other than "it looks good".

I'm sorry guys, but in order to keep this on-topic and keep our thread clean, we will be removing any off-topic posts. You can PM if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Paul

Very good point! Jeez though, alot of complainers in this thread, these guys look like they are offering some good stuff, if you don't want it dont buy it. Anyways.. how are HID's in foglights? I have 6k low beams, but i can't tell if HID's for the fogs would be too much blinding people and what not; im sure they look purdy though.

Thank you for your comment! I don't think you would have to worry about the Fog light HIDs blinding people. The lenses are usually pointed down to the ground so as to not blind other people.

Agreed. Here in NZ its actually 'illegal' to drive around with the fogs on in the daytime but people do anyway, claiming they work like DRLs, because of the aim/ functionality.

If you wanted actual secondary road lights, they need to be fitted higher up imo, the foglights cut off far too short along the road to be of any use (in NZ, real fog is rare XD )

I'd be interested in some of the 6k, stage 2, for a 99' forester... Prices?

Here is a link to the 1999 Fog Light LEDs: 1998-2002 Subaru Forester Fog Light LEDs (pair) - Forester - Subaru - HID & LED by Vehicle - Replacement Lighting

Stage 2 is $59.99 a pair, and now we even have a Stage 2.5 for $67.49.

The Stage 2.5's are exceptionally bright, hard to put into words how bright it really is, especially in comparison to a Stage 1.
