But wait.....

Got another question... I thought a H11 is a single pin bulb? So why are these pics of the H11 bulbs on ebay have 2 pins????<p><br> <IMG SRC="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d70/aanr2002/Misc/LB-NK-W-H11-S2_01.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d70/aanr2002/Misc/LB-NK-W-H11-S2_02.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm straight off the HID conversion for now. <p>Veefifty T5AWD, thanks for that info!<p>But any idea on my question about the pins? Or am I just tripping and mixing up a H11 with a H1 bulb? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I have a feeling HIDs in the fogs won't have the problems they do in the headlights...although I never had problems in the headlights either.

Those are HIDs in that BMW though so the quality of the light you will get with be no where near that of those .... If you just want it for looks i say heck yes<p>Also make sure you keep us update i am also looking for some new Fog lights <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Also H11 and H1 are NOT the same H11 is for our cars fogs and low beams unless you have HID's

Re: What color fog light bulbs should I get? (USAF 2010 T5)

Go with arctic white H7's then modify the base to fit an H11 socket.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.eautoworks.com/images/350/nokH7white05.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Arctic white is white with a slight hint of purple, its very nice! Some 2800 lumens of light output put everything on the road to shame.<p>I had them and loved them, too bad they only lasted 6 months. So next time I do bulbs I'll be going with HID's

Re: Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

Yellow is good but I think for our cars just pure white will be best. A HID kit with 6000k is not a bad idea either. It will give it that blueish hue and really bright output just like the beamers above.<p>IMHO yellow looks good on rally cars such as Subarus'. Just my .02<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

I've got yellowish HID fog lights, put there by the previous owner. Not going to change them anytime soon, unless they fail one day. I'd go for yellow too, for visibility, and I do not switch on my fogs unless they are necessary or that I want to tell friends I'm coming to pick them up (ie, when you see an oncoming car with white HID headlamps and yellowish HID fogs, that's me)

Re: (fone)

You mind posting a pic? I wouldnt mind upgrading my fogs to a HID kit in yellow long as the color is true and not amber looking.
