Has anyone purchased some of these? They look good to me.
i'm waiting for the right moment. supposedly a group buy may be sponsored here to be able to get them for $150 shipped.

the only thing that makes them different from JDM (other than being offered in amber and smoke :p) is they do not have a bulb shroud inside the housing. If light output is crappy i plan on making my own from some sheet metal; small enough so they would fit through the bulb hole. :)

^Output is crappy from the real JDM driving lights.

Thanks, I'm gonna save up for the JDM's.
he means that JDM's have crappy light output themselves.



"JDM's" aren't true foglights themselves. the way they're made they don't really pierce the fog and just simply light up the immediate area in front of the car. hence why they are actually called "daytime driving lights." the other JDM fog light options (the one with the small round lenses) act better as fog lights than the full size JDM's.

Fog lights are supposed to have a wide flat beam. Idea is to light up the road just in front below the fog. Driving lights (which I have heard the JDM's called) are actually supposed to supplement high beams, so they need to be bright.

yeah those are JDM. us got white lenses, japan got white and yellow.


and if you'd risk those ebay ones you'll be a trooper. :bigthumb:
i don't have the money to burn to take the risk, so this'll help decide.

"true JDM." :laugh: (no offense, just sounded funny considering the circumstances; it'll be easy to label them as knock offs. get them for their purpose.)



i have a similar plan whenever i get around to doing my taxes. i also want the clear and am going to buy yellow lamin-x so i can choose when and if. and not be stuck with a colored lens.

nice find!!! i also have the JDM fogs but for this price i would have gotten this if they had it available back then, its better looking than the plastic or the USDM fogs and bout the light output! who cares it barely fogs ( and if does i dont know if it really helps that much) here in upstate ny at least, and with my retrofit my JDM fogs are my DRL ;) GL

aye they don't look too bad. Cheap plastic though but what do you expect. I would get it if I didn't have jdm fogs already.

So far there are decent aftermarket headlights (Depo) and now the JDM fogs......if they will only make decent, clean, OEM looking LED tails :)
