Default Rebased H3 Xenon's in Fog Lights

A while back, a buddy of mine gave me a pair of rebased H3 Xenon bulbs (5000K) that he didn't plan on using anymore. Not sure what I should do with them (since I already have the projector setup for my main lighting) I decided to throw one bulb in a fog light and see how it looked.


To my surprise, it actually turned out quite well. Believe it or not, the factory fog light cutoff sheild pretty much eliminates any unwanted glare from the (much) brighter bulb. For reference, the bulbs in the main projectors are 4300K D1S Phillips.

Over all, Im very happy with how they turned out. The light obviously doesnt project forward very far, after all it is just a fog light, but it does light up the immediate area in front of the car quite nicely. Also, the lane markers are much easier to see on wet roads. Havent had a chance to check out their usefulness in actual fog but Im sure Ill get the opportunity as winter is rapidly approaching the Mid West.

Possibly in the top 10 for mother of all bumps , but thanks for the pics! Just did this and some new headlights for my bug eye. New setup is 20,000 times better than old oem.
