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.
HP48: This bulb is designed with 48 Epistar 3014 LED chips. Thanks to the cap on the top, the light from this High Power Bulb is shined backwards and away from the bulb, not straight out. This means the output is excellent, because it uses the vehicle's housing completely, which then shines the light much more uniformly.
XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more, under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.
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.
HP48: 280 lumens. Slightly lower brightness than factory.
XP80: 510 lumens. Similar brightness to factory.
XML2: 1420 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.
Great Product! Review by DJ

I bought these bulbs for my 2013 mazdaspeed3, I was looking to go back to yellow fogs and decided to give these a chance. I'm very happy I did! They are the best yellow bulbs I have owned and I have had a number of brands. The yellow is extremely intense and is very bright! I suggest these to anyone looking to have quality bulbs (Posted on 2/24/15)
Excellent quality and results, but pricey Review by Chris
Price Value Quality
I got the XP80 H11 LED bulbs in yellow for my FR-S fog lights and overall they were a good buy.
Fitment: The bulbs fit perfectly into my OEM fog lights installed from the factory. Install was simple and easy.
Output: These are definitely putting out more lumens than normal H11 halogen bulbs but it's not the same beam pattern. There isn't really much glare because the fog lights are so low to the ground and the XP80s are putting out more light in general so I do feel like the output is an upgrade over the stock halogens, but not by a huge amount. This is significantly better than most other LEDs that are really just for the color/for show - the XP80s are producing real use-able light.
Color: The yellow is really yellow, not golden. It actually has a very, very slight hint of green to it. I believe the LEDs are outputting the normal cool white (5000k - 6000k temp) but it's projected through a yellow tinted covering (possibly plastic or glass, can't tell). The effect is similar to a 6000k HID kit behind yellow vinyl'd housing, which projects a yellow, hint of green, color.
Price: These are expensive. At the time of my purchase, these are $90 a pair vs less than $20 for a pair of halogen H11s. While $90 is pricey, the fact that you're getting a unique color, lower power consumption, and the fact that you'll probably never need to replace the bulbs (vs halogens will burn out), I feel the XP80s are worth it. Would I buy it again? Definitely. (Posted on 2/18/15)

I ordered these in yellow to use in the fog lights of my frs. These were a great addition to my vehicle. The are super bright, as bright if not brighter then the silver star headlight bulbs I have. The color is nice and fills the housing very well. Another great product from a great company. (Posted on 1/28/15)

Replaced my stock halogen fog light bulbs in my 2014 Lexus IS 250 with these H11 XP80 LED and was very impressed with the quality and brightness. They are super bright and really make a difference for my early morning drives to work and at night (Posted on 1/2/15)

Replaced the stock dull yellowish halogen bulbs on my 2014 Lexus IS250 with these H11 XP80's. The brightness and output is much greater than expected. The color is a perfect match for my factory LED headlights which was my goal but the way these improved night vision was an added bonus! (Posted on 11/3/14)
Excellent upgrade Review by Max L.

This was used to replace a factory fog light. This light is so much brighter and is exactly what I needed for a lonely back road with possible critters skirting out of the brush. Would recommend this to anybody looking out to get more function out of their fog lamps and also people that want to color match HIDs. All round excellent quality from a high end supplier.
