Around the lens on the front of the bumper? You don't have to. Once you take the screw off of the fog it just pulls out inside of the bumper.

I keep debating this move.

If I wanted better night time vision would I get better results switching out the OEM fog light bulbs.

I'll shoot some road travel pics tonight on my 5 hour trip. I love the look even if it does sacrifice a little of the illumination that the halogens have.

theyre wider...when youre staring dead on to the lights.... LEDs do not shoot far... when you go up close you can see that the floor is lit up ONLY in front of the light.... anything directly in front of your car (while sitting inside) you wont even notice the LEDs are on....its purely for cosmetic purposes (in my opinion)..... i honestly think HIDs are the brightest.... but perhaps some OEM halogens will perform the same, im unsure...i just slapped on the HID kit with mine and been loving it

Did you install the new 2014 fog lights in your isf before you installed your hid kit for comparison?

You can clearly see the difference between the LEDs being on and off from inside the car. They might be dimmer than the halogen ones, but they still provide usable light output and aren't only for cosmetic purposes. They also have a good reach and a wide output.

This. Although I completely forgot to take any pictures last night they are very noticeable from the drivers seat when they are on compared to when they are off.

I also got flashed a lot on the way here while driving with my low beams on. Never had that happen before the headlight swap.

What HID kit did you use?

Maybe this is a long shot, but can the fog lights be turned upside down and mounted that way? Didn't know if they were upside down and the beam pattern is pointed up instead of down? Not sure if that is why you are getting flashed.

I thought I had one with high beams on for comparison but I can't seem to find it in my phone. All you get is fogs on and fogs off. You can def tell the difference
