Hi I wanted to upgraded my stock front fog light bulbs. I ordered the ones in the picture 2x H11 CREE 5W Q5 LED Foglight Bulbs for Ford Focus but the didn't fit and had to send them back. I don't want to drimmel the housing.

Is there an alternative anybody can recommend please would very much appreciate it.

Cheers

Seems to good to be true.....

Are these decent, longlasting bulbs or are they cheap knock-offs??

Me too. Tried the "nightbreaker" and one of them failed after just 3 months!
They should rename them "walletbreaker" instead as they dont last 5 minutes!

Haha. Bet your mate is gutted! LOL

I usually only pay top dollar for items for my car but in some cases you're just throwing your money away.

Theyve just been dispatched so i'm hoping they live up to expectations.... :)

Like i say ive had no issues no yellow and the pic was taken with a streetlamp directly overhead no issues with them failing or burning out and when they do im buying the same ones again i drive back roads to work with no lighting and they light up the road better than standard stick the main beam on you can see forever into the distance
