Sure, I got mine from Amazon. So far pleased.Siriusled had a new 2nd gen ZES LED MZ H11 LED
Do you have a link to the product on Amazon?
Actually for two reasons:Why would you guys want distance from your fogs?
I am very picky about driving lights. I got the Touring model primary just for the legal LED lights, since they were rated acceptable (A) vs the halogen marginal (M) on the 2017 IHS light ratings. But I still found the factory LED rather poor (esp for deer sightings and wild life on the side) and the halogen factory fog H8 lamps were were pretty pathetic and a weird color match to the LEDs.
So I stated a "holy light LED grail" search for the best CR-V fog LED lamp search. I first got the $30 JDM Adstar H11 fog lamps, not bad, but just still wished for something brighter. So ok, but not great. After a few months of use, I searched for something better.
So I tried next the "legal" Philips H11 for LED lamps. Actually pretty good and great warranty- good forward and side throw. But still just still did not seem as good ss my Rigid fog lamps I had put on an older car, so I wanted at least equal performance. I thought about trying to retro fit the RIGID Industries LEDs Fog (SAE compliant) LEDs to the CR-V, just it seem to be very difficult to accomplished. And they are around $240 + normal installation. I figured on the CRr-V would need a total custom cutout/mount or some external mounting. Cost would be $400+ or more. Either way, a lot of cost, not just how it would be done and possible just not good looking either. So back to the holy grail search.
So tired, the Beamtech H11 LED. Very bright forward, but not not really good on side throw, so went back go the the prior Phillips H11 LED for awhile. BTW, none of the above caused any other cars to flash their high beams, so good.
So saw that Siriusled had a new 2nd gen ZES LED MZ H11 LED rated at 8000 lumens. It had a fan, so some concerns, but claimed 2 year warranty. The CR-V other bulbs had kep clean so far, so area does not seem too exposed to road grime. Fan might be ok. So purchaed for $60.
So far, the Siriyusled SM leds are very bright and have the side throw I also wanted. So in a month of use, I have NOT gotten flashed, but I suspect it is on the border of acceptance of other drivers. They are that bright. It is good enoght for now.
Finally, I hace gotten good augmented throw with my main LEDs. It almost looks seamless, so pleaed. I can now see the very comman deer much easier, so feel better about drivgn at night in my Colorado area.
Thanks for the link. I ordered the H11 (6000) and just installed them tonight. They look amazing and match the headlights perfectly.I installed these today :
Very similar, if not identical to the JDM ASTAR bulbs and gives a nice wide light pattern. Doesn't blind incoming drivers, and available in 5000k to match the factory LED headlights.
1. Problem is, to have distance, you need to aim them upwards. Otherwise, you won't get distance. Fog lights are not meant to substitute what your headlights are made for.Actually for two reasons:
1) To augment the primary headlights, which even for the LEDs factory headlamps are just acceptable per IHS and my personal view also.
2) Too much foreground light actually reduces your night vision ability and the ability to see in the distance in the dark. You really want a balanced light spread of light, if possible. Not just an extremely well lit foreground only. It is actually self-defeating in overall effect. The 2017 CR-V fog lamp housing is not good for much distance regardless of how bright a bulb, but it does have a good side throw, so a bright bulb does helps greatly there, in my opinion. It does help a little in the distance throw however, but not to a large degree. Overall, it is good for seeing curbs, people and wildlife in the bushes, if one is not driving faster then the reach of the primary headlamps. It just makes driving at night more relaxing and one has more confidence in for unexpected conditions..
I have the 2nd gen Sirius MX H11 and it seems to work well and no drivers have flashed yet. A visual self-look, it does look look bright, but not really much glare overall. So pleased. And I don't think it offends other drivers, which is very important to me.
hey Fleeecy i was looking into getting the H8 CMB led bulbs from Xenondepot as well. Do they light up the road as well as the original halogen fog bulbs? or are they purely there for looks only?
Hello, Can you give me the steps on how to install the Fog Light Bulbs for the CRV? I know you posted a picture but that doesn't really help me get to that point. What screws or parts do I have to take off to access that?The installation of the fog led bulbs is very easy. I posted pictures in post#27
Way too dim for me in the low beams.
