For clarification, as asked by Canadian_XT, the XML2s are 1410 per bulb? What is their output pattern and cut off in the OEM housing? Do you have a diagram/graphic or angles/degrees? Anything to clarify how the light is projected out or the OEM fog housing?
The XML2s are indeed 1,410 lumens per bulb (measured)
They produce significantly more lumen output than the factory halogen bulbs, but utilize the factory reflector fog light housings quite well.
I don't have a graphic or diagram on file with the angle or degrees of the Subaru Forester's factory housing, but it's worth noting that fog lights are an auxiliary location, mounted low on the vehicle, and will not create significant glare for other drivers on the road. Especially not as much as an HID conversion kit.
If you are looking for a technical spec-sheet with our measurements of the H11 XML2, please send an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can provide you with more information from our engineering team.
We also offer a complete LED replacement housing, which replaces the entire factory fog light housing. (currently out of stock).
Feel free to give us a call for more information: (314) 205-3033
