Fog Light LED bulbs are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your vehicle. From the factory, most vehicles come with halogen bulbs, which project in a yellowish light. By replacing them with LEDs, you can create a modern appearance with the cool white light of LEDs.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!
Please note: Fog Light LEDs are primarily for cosmetic upgrade. Some models may not provide an increase in output.
XML2: Two opposing genuine CREE XM-L2 chips, driven at high power by self-contained regulator unit, in an attractive cast-aluminum housing. Fully waterproof, non-polar, modular design.
Fitment. SMD, HP, and XP bulbs use an inject-molded terminal, with a full-size base connector, designed for exact replacement of your factory bulb. The XML2 bulb fits in the same way, but also requires an additional 2" of clearance behind the bulb socket- see pictures.
Included in your order is TWO BULBS.
These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, bright, cool white hue. The XML2 is also available in natural white, pure white, and yellow.
Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb, compared to the factory bulb.
XML2: 1410 lumens. Much brighter than factory. These are bright!
Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.
These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.
LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as CREE, Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.
While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.
Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.
Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.
Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.
All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.
Seem good quality, very bright. Review by Trevor
Price Value Quality
I'll just start off by saying I received one defective bulb on my first order. One of the LEDs on one of the lights was 6000k-8000k. Since there are only 2 large LEDs on each light, it was easy to notice. My RMA was answered in one day and I received my replacement shortly. Had to mail back the other one, but it wasn't a big deal. I didn't have to pay for any extra costs. Fantastic A+ customer service.
Now that I have both installed (4000k XLM2), I've been using them for about 2 weeks. They're super bright, are instantly at full power, and have a great spread. They're definitely too powerful to be used as an actual "fog" light, as in used for fog or inclimate weather. They will just reflect back at you as badly as normal low beams. But for adding light to the road without using high beams and increasing your light width, they work great.
At first, I had Lamin-X Yellow covers on, but with the 4000k light, it makes the yellow look very jarring and almost green-ish. Not the warm yellow light you get with the covers and halogens. I didn't order the yellow because I wanted the option to use white. Ideally, I would've preferred to have 3200k - 3600k foglights. Like a warm white. I hate the trend of headlights above 4000k personally. I think 5000k should be the highest allowed on the road, but that's neither here nor there.
4000k is not a warm white. I think natural white is a bad term for it and misled me a little to think it was going to be equivalent to the natural white labeled lightbulbs. It seems more to me to be a pure white. I don't see any real yellow hue in the light. It's much much whiter than my headlights or high beams. I would've been happier with a color closer to my halogens in the low beams, but that's just my preference. Nothing Diode Dynamics did wrong.
Overall they did there job. I should've probably have just done more of my research to figure out what to expect. Overall, I'd recommend them to others. (Posted on 1/13/17)

Ordered these fog lights in yellow. Shipping was quick. Right out of the box, these things will impress you. The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. Installation was quick and easy, plug and play. In use, these things are amazing. Really bright. And with a 3 year warranty, you'd be foolish not to buy these bulbs. (Posted on 9/23/16)

Top Notch LED Fog Lamps Review by PCHOne
Price Value Quality
I decided to purchase the full Luxeon LED fog lamps. Why not choose a full fog lamp assembly using clear lenses and optimized optics vs, inferior LED bulbs in reflective fog lamps? Also I chose to buy from DD vs.the Morimoto branded unit because they made by the same mfg. Great product from DD. (Posted on 3/20/16)
