Higher wattage bulbs may cause reflector / lens / housing failures even without these covers,. As using these covers, may decrease the lens ability to dissipate heat more applicable to fog lights than to headlights- we also recommend that you refrain from using higher wattage bulbs in conjunction with our high performance covers,. We also suggest turning you fog lights off while you vehicle is stationary stuck in stop and go traffic for example.

FWIW.
good point. now mine. the oem spec for the front fog light bulb is 12V-24W, this is a 7 WATT LED. so, it is a lower wattage rating, is produces more lumens and and should run cooler. so a lens cover should be safe. soooooo....... my high power led=good. HID= bad. is the fog high light.

FWIW.
