i guess you have never driven through a snowstorm

Reason why I even bring this up is because on my last car (that was also lowered), the fogs were halogens and during a crazy snow storm they were clear/working at night, whereas my HID lows were completely caked in ice dramatically reducing light output.
This is not the car I will take in the snow.

I just wanted to make sure these will fit all three applications before I order a set of three

I will stay with my H9 conversion, it is much brighter than the stock H11 bulbs.

If you search ebay for "4800lm 6000k H11 led" and choose US only you can find a link like this:


$70 from a US seller.

It looks like that other link is some kind of scammer.
There were 4 results for US sellers with one of them that $169 scam and the others for less than $70.

So my 2014 F Sport uses H11 for both headlights and fogs.

I ordered them from the link above and it was delivered in a couple days.
Install for both set took less the 30 minutes and the results are amazing.

The brand is CREE LED and it comes with two LED's and a wire converter.
