I have really been wanting to see these in action. So I put on the coveralls and laid down on my back and slid under the front of the XV and got to work...
The LEDs are packaged very well. They include a built in resistor and waterproof connections. They are plug and play with the XV's fog light harness.
Slide under the front and start popping out the plastic rivets. I didnt realize it at the time but you do not need to pop out the the ones for the little air deflector in front of the tire (located upper right). There is one phillips head screw you must remove. Then just pull the plastic downward until you have access. There is plenty of space up in there. No need to fully remove the plastic from the wheel well.
Remove the harness from the bulb, then remove the bulb. Then follow the instructions included with the kit: Plug bulb to resistor, use resistor wires to determine polarity. I stuck the pins in the XV's harness plug.
Dang thats bright!
Now that you know polarity (black wire on the kit went to the black wire on the car, makes sense) you can assemble the waterproof plug. Insert the pins in the bottom of the plug and pull them until they snap into place. Use needle nose pliers. I had to pull hard.
Snap the bulb into the fog lamp assembly. Snap your newly created plug into the XV Fog light harness. Use wire ties to attach the extra wire and resistor up and out of the way.
driver's- dont attach to the bottom hole on the right like I did. It is exposed when you put the plastic back on. I changed it later but no pic.
They look nice, the fog lamp is clear at at angle but yellow from head on.
I would say that these are really bright, but the color is not for everyone. They are called Hyper Lime Yellow for a reason. There is definitly a hint of green, but not so much that I dont like them. The quality is great on these and the heatsink on the back of the bulb is real metal and functional. They have a 2 year warranty and are rated for 50,000+ hours.
much brighter than stock and designed for fog lamps so they use the stock reflector pattern. See the difference?
this pic of my freezer show the nice cutoff just like a fog lamp should.
Now I need a nice and foggy morning to try 'em out!
