So far, so good. I didn't put a thermal gun to them but the heat coming off of the enclosures feels the same to me with HIDs as it did halogens. But if it does melt I would definitely let you know.^^^ Any concerns with heat cooking the fog light capsules? They aren't very big. Please let us know how it works out. LEDs throw the heat out the back.
Here is a pic with LED Fog light replacement using the bulb above purchased from Amazon. I was a little concerned that these bulbs didn't have a heat-sink or fan or ballast, but so far so good and perfect for $25.Hey Gophill, Do you have any pictures of your foglight change out or some helpful instructions? Which lights did you go with? LED?
I was thinking of using these: Amazon.com: Pair of H8 DRL Fog Light LED 30w 6000k Super Bright White Projection 2014 New: Automotive
They sure look good. Still, the purpose of the fog lights is to provide a concentrated beam that cuts through fog, dust, snow, etc. From your description sounds like the LEDs behave more like a traditional headlight instead.As you can see I replaced one at a time so you could see the difference. Halogens throw more concentrated light on the ground ahead and the LED throws light everywhere including above my LED low-beam cutoff.
