    H4 LED Fog light bulbs

    Hi guys,

    A mate of mine has got these on his BMW in his fogs its basically a H4 bulb but with LEDs instead of your average halogen bulb it looks well good and its nice and bright with a crisp white LED look when on...

    Anyone got these or know anything about them?

    Thanks

    May look nice but useless in fog !

    White light reflects more off water droplets in misty/foggy conditions and causes driver visiblity problems.

    That's why in days gone by all foglights had yellow bulbs which penetrate fog better.

    Also hence orange sodium lighting was introduced to improve all round street visibility in poor conditions.

    So there !!!! lol

    Exactly right, they do look the business but absolute CACK when used in fog,
    To be honest I would never have believed this but I am speaking from experience ,
    I have recently changed ALL my LEDs back to halogen except for my reg plate ones,
    Although this is due to personal taste
