Default My before/after pics with the 2014 LED fog lights

Just wanted to share what I did today after FEDEX showed up. Took about 45 mins to read through the pages on here for the how-to and then to mess around with the plastic fender pieces with a fear of breaking it. All ended well and just in time as the wife and I are heading on a trip to Tennessee this weekend.

Prior to any work. (IDK why people blur tags, but I'm going to be a rebel and not.)

Although the color of my headlights after the TSB are still a little different than the LED fogs I think it looks a hundred times better than the OEM ones.

Gatlinburg, TN.

I got them from Sewell for 113/each. I was happy with the pricing

Cool. I live in knoxville TN and my family owns a cabin on the mountain in Gatlinburg. How long will you be in town and are you bringing the F?

Let us know how they light up the road during hours of darkness. Based off of the pictures the LED's seem dimmer. I like the color/kelvin and the shape of the LED output, looks a lot better IMO.

How long was the actual wait for them?

We'll get up there Thursday night and heading out Sunday and I'll be in the F. I'll get some pics at night for you guys too.

I originally placed the order October 27 and was notified they were on backorder. I got confirmation on November 1 that they had been packaged, and they arrived November 6.

They certainly light up the road much wider. I've been told that my lights actually lit up the cars' lanes on either side, as their vehicles were not able to beam as far or illuminate as greatly. I felt the same way when I had the LED fogs installed; my headlights might need to be changed too (maybe bulb, maybe housing ). Such a subtle upgrade to the F!

Thanks for the pictures!

I ordered a set as well, cause my original fogs are badly pitted.....

sigh...only received the left one, right side is back ordered.

i honestly think the regular bulbs were better and brighter...i swapped in HIDs on mine...LED are more for cosmetics and dont light up as far as the halogens or HIDs....
