H11 is 55 watt. H8 are 35 watt. Both have same plug arrangement.

New Fogs Installed

I just installed a set of BEAMTECH H11 LED Headlight Bulbs to replace the stock halogen fog lights and it was a pretty easy process.

As noted by others it only took about 30 minutes. Start on the driver's side since it give you a little more room to work and it helps make the passenger's side much easier since there's not as much space over there. Be sure to PUSH the tab in to pull the bulb connector off, then turn counter clockwise to remove the bulb from the housing. I've replaced fogs on my last three cars and the CRV was the easiest. I've taken a day picture, but it looks like the beam pattern is nice, low, wide, and even. My driveway is at an incline before it reaches the garage door, so it's not THIS low on even ground, but you can see it's much lower than the headlights. These are a little bluer than the stock LED Touring lights, so you may want to go with a 6K or 5.5K bulb if you're looking for exact color matching. Try to find something with a similar setup (side facing lights, not front facing) and you should be good to go. Good luck peeps!

So I went ahead and ordered the "SiriusLED MX 8000 Lumen ZES Chip Extremely Bright LED Headlight Fog Lamp Conversion Kit Pure White 6500K Size H11 (H8 H9) Set of 2". I have to agree with BeyondToyota - its super bright and the side throw is solid. Went out during wet dark weather and the lights really helped my drive! I will say that the comments on the amazone page do mention a flicker or the light being dead eventually so I am going to use the fog lights for every drive and in a month I will post back here on the status of the lights! Thanks mate!
So it's been 3 months and I'm here to report back that I have no problems with the fog lights!!

Finally installed the LED fog light bulbs I ordered a while back and was putting the old bulbs in the new package and noticed that they sent me H11 instead of H8 bulbs. Checked my order and yep, I ordered H8 but got H11 bulbs. Has anyone installed H11 bulbs in their fog lights and had any problems with them? Particularly, have you had any problems with them being too bright for oncoming traffic or with too much heat generated from the H11 bulb (55 watts) as opposed to an H8 bulb (35 watts). I'm concerned about traffic and the H11 melting or warping my fog light housings or lenses. Any thoughts?

A suggestion...Look at post # 243 in this thread. Maybe PM that poster as it shows having installed H11s.

Edit: and post 241 as well, mentioned ordering H8s and getting H11s.

I also installed the Sirius H8 LED fog lamps. After an initial drive, they appear to be exactly what I wanted. They fill in the fall-off right in front of the car, which was irritatingly dim before. As bape7u and 273034 say, they are BRIGHT, however. I didn't see anyone flashing their lights at me, but they are very bright. What I didn't expect was how much it filled in around the car. You see it most when you drive down a more wooded street - it illuminates whatever is on the sides and above so I can see my surroundings much more. Frankly, I bought the Touring for the LED headlights. I was not happy driving down dark roads on rainy nights, and want the brightest at this price point of vehicles (not willing to pay the extra $15 K for the Acura). I have not driven much with the new foglights but am very pleased so far.

I actually swapped the lights because I had the misfortune of catching my front bumper on a parking lot curb and it pulled the bumper off slightly (actually more than slightly) on one side and actually broke a piece on the fog light assembly. I was able to glue it back and took the liberty of seeing how things were put together.

There is a triangular piece of plastic on the bottom of the car that - by removing two push rivets, pulls back. You can get your hand in there to remove the lamps (see the college hills PDF - bottom view) There is a clip on the wire that pulls out (you can reattach it) that will allow the lamp to be pulled further away from the housing for replacement. Drivers side turns clockwise (to 7 o'clock) to remove, passenger side is the opposite - counter-clockwise to 2 o'clock) for removal. There is a rubber gasket so it's a snug fit - but it does turn. Warning - it's snug, and it will turn, but the housing seems a bit flimsy so you probably could crack the housing if you horse it to much. Just exercise care. You can actually pull the front sport bumper away without much difficulty at all. Start at the wheel well; there is a vertical tab that slips out. I was actually pretty shocked at how easy it was. Not going to say flimsy, but... good for not destroying the bumper in a mishap I guess. Another warning. The fog lamp assembly has two screws attaching to the bottom sport bumper and one at the top that attaches to the upper (colored) bumper. Don't pull the bumpers apart too much or you'll crack it - but there is considerable room for error. You do not need to pull the bumpers apart much. Just start at the wheel well, ease it from the black trim,and it pops out. Thanks to all in this thread - there is a lot of information and feedback.

I used these for the fogs . They look great and provide good yellow light to the ground.

For headlights I used these:

For high beams I used these:

I am very satisfied with the results.

does your crv have oem projectors?, they seem to put the light down the road very well, I can only imagine if you had Hids on those, it would be very awesome.

2017 CRV EX. I am think of replacing my low beams with LED lights I have watched a few videos and they talk about have to remove a push pin holding the Windshield washer tube to get enough wiggle room to insert the bulb with the fan assembly. However none of the videos are clear enough to show exactly where this pin is located. Did any of you LED converters have to do this?

Thanks

Len

In case anyone finds this old thread and orders these lights noted above 'SiriusLED H8 Size DRL Fog Light LED 30W 6000k Super Bright White Projection Bulb https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N5BAWYK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ' as fog replacements be aware that the latest version must have grown in size. I just installed them and they required a mm or so to be trimmed from one side of the hole they are inserted through in order to fit.

I found the slight trimming can be done by blade without removing the assembly.
