Given our foglight housing, these unit's won't work too well. Its a glass housing with a rear reflecting setup - so you'll need forward facing bulbs, these LED's you posted are side facing.

Good news and bad news on THESE

Good: These fit without any modification, they have been longer lasting (through all weather conditions) than the factory replacements or Silverstars, and they're a near perfect color match to our Xenon headlights.

Bad: They aren't nearly bright enough to be effective fog lights. During the day, from the outside you do notice they are on, but from the inside, no dice.

Hope that helps!

LEDs are simply not bright enough for use in the projector housing. Unless you are using your fogs as pure cosmetic or replacing your DRLs, I would suggest going for HID conversion instead.

Unless you are installing Rigid Dually D2s...

I tried these on my C70. Looked like the lights were out. Not good at all. I switched back to the originals almost immediately.
