Is that completely stock Sportback front end, guessing it is? Storming again Norm, seems to think you painted grill and lower facia? My TourX frontend looks a little different but not alot. Bright trim around grill and fogs different.

Yeah completely stock front end - I think it's because most people on here have the TourX and not the Sportback

So, I went with Alla lights white. Super easy to install, I don't know, if I can tell significant difference, other than cooler look.
I have an essence trim with halogen headlights.

I hope you realize you are blinding oncoming drivers with those bright fog lights. If you want the road illuminated better at night you need to get brighter headlight bulbs. Not only that fog lights are supposed to illuminate the road with low light output, that way the light doesn't reflect off the fog so you can see ahead of you.

I don't think I do, it is about the same as the factory ones, also beam is wider, lower and shorter. Never get flashed high beam on me.

I can see a lot of glare from the fog lights in your picture and it's taken from the side and in the daytime. So don't try to tell me those lights are blinding oncoming drivers during night time driving. Those really bright light bars that people install on a lot of trucks blind me when I'm driving. Just because people aren't flashing their bright lights at you doesn't mean the glare isn't affecting their night vision.

Comparing the photo of your headlights on the wall to the fog lights only on the same wall, they are shining higher than the headlights yet you say they shine lower lol.

Pictures were taken at 5 am. I do have some glare above the low beam, you are correct, but you can only notice it, because of the color difference, with the stock bulbs it would've been the same color as the head lights and the same pattern. It is not focused beam, so shouldn't be that bad.
Light bars on the other hand are irritating, but the output on them is much higher...

You've had your Alla's for awhile now. I'm considering buying a pair. Are they still functioning properly?

Yes they are, in fact- I bought set of yellows and put them on the TourX, whites went to my wife's car. I love them. Probably the best money/quality fogs you can get now.

Excellent. I was doing a lot or research on them. Folks were having problems of flickering, longevity and overheating on various cars with all the brands. If it works for yours it should work for mine. Man, the price is right!

After trying Hella Optilux yellow fogs as a direct replacement halogen I've now converted to LED. Much brighter and the yellow actually looks good, better than I thought. I went with Auxito bulbs from Amazon

First photo is halogen, 2nd is LED.

Nice. I'm usually function over form. I understand the yellow is better for actual fog. But as fog isn't a concern, I'm going bling white. Have them match the headlights.

These are available in 6500k white too. Lots of pics at Amazon as it looks like most people buy white to match LED or HID headlights.

Exactly why I posted the picture with white and yellow(both Alla lights). So people can compare.

Are those switchbacks or did you happen to have a white one on one side and a yellow one on the other?
