My fog light issue from the last page actually ended up being just the bulb. Which is weird.

I took out the stock bulbs, put in those Noyka hyperyellow ones. While there is a fair cutoff for the Noyka bulbs, there is still a lot of glare shooting upwards. I never really noticed with the stock bulb, so I replaced the one Noyka bulb with the original to do a side by side comparison. This is when I noticed my stock bulb wasn't lighting properly, and wiggling the wire made it work.

I figured it was the plug, but it turns out when I put the Noyka bulb back in, everything worked fine. So either that original bulb is broken, or the Noyka bulb somehow altered the socket to only work with Noyka bulbs.

Additionally, the stock bulb also throws a lot of light upwards and in the same pattern as the Noyka. The majority of the focused light, however, is downwards.
