Default LED Fog Lights

Added some long overdue LED fog lights...

super bright.
Lights cost $14.. install about an hour.

HID headlights with led fog lights work together well color wise.

DAMN those are nice. Wish I saw your post earlier. I literally just bought fog lights on Amazon also and am looking to do the same setup as you. Why did you decide to put it under the grille and not the turning signals?

I have my license flipped upside down so it sits over the middle of the lower grill. Theres exactly enough space on each side for them to fit perfectly. No damage to the car just zip tie them in and pull the wiring sraight up to the existing harness.

Also from an aesthetic standpoint i felt it looks more aggressive centered between the white hids

Here's a good shot of how much of a difference they make. Before i had already great light visibility at night with the 35w HID's at 5500k

Now with the LED Fog lights the area right in front of the bumper to about 20 feet in front of the car is also amazingly well lit and blends perfectly into the HID light.

Looks freaking great. How do you have them hooked/wired up?

Hey believe it or not i found a really simple way to hook them up without cutting a single wire.

Just take off the clip on adapter that powers this stupid bulb that does nothing basically... see image below.




Literally took a power and ground wire and pulled enough length to attach to the led wiring to go directly in the power and ground socket on the face of the adapter. Electrical tape to neatly secure it.

That bulb is powered when you switch the lights to the first setting and if you need it to it can be all taken apart and put back to the factory set up within 5 minutes

no problem glad to share. I would also mention that the lights are all metal and practically Bulletproof but I read on reviews they sometimes will trap moisture inside so I took some Automotive silicone sealant from Home Depot and covered the exterior edge of the glass and the back of the light where the wiring enters. So far looks like it did the job perfectly in total the investment was about 25 bucks including the silicon and wiring since i didn't have any laying around

I've been thinking about adding a set of fog light on my 2010 Insight since the day light time is getting shorter and I drive my Insight in the dark more frequently. I haven't been to this forum for years and I just came back to it and found the info. what exactly I was looking for.

I was wondering how you attach the fog lights without damaging the car. Could you show me more detail?

Thanks.

It's hard to show now that i put it all back together... just see my explanation above with the pictures and ask me any specific questions if you get stuck... I literally just zip tied the back of the lights which has holes around the columns on the bottom grill and jammed the hot wire and ground wire into the harness from that useless little corner light... no cutting ..
