Best fog light

I have tried looking for different fog lights and haven’t had much luck! I’m wanting a stock style light that is adjustable and bright?

Not a lot of options for these. I tried an LED bulb in mine but they were worse than the halogen. I even tried an aftermarket amber housing with LED and halogen, both were nowhere near as good as stock. I'm running silverstars in my fogs for now and they still aren't that great.

I've been asking this for some time... It seems no one offers anything other than about the same as stock in light output. I have the Sport too and options for whats out there is even worse than the standard fogs since they use a different mounting. I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to fabricate something to utilize a quality aftermarket LED fog light, otherwise forget it.

I guess I’ll try the wizard 984 bulbs in stock fogs and see what they are like!

Daniel stern lighting, the guy I got both my sport headlight relay harnesses from claims to have a good upgrade to the factory fogs that only require minimal modification to fit. Maybe inquire to him about it

6000k refers to the light color, which will be more on the blue side. The human eye sees 5000k and down better which is closer to natural sunlight and it’s also less fatiguing on the eyes.

I would imagine all that you’re going to get out of 6000k bulbs is the same or less visibility and blinding oncoming drivers

I am running a silverstar 881 bulb right now. They are pretty much just white.
