TRS LED Fogs

First off, if this is in the wrong section, please feel free to move it to the correct one.

So, I recently ordered some LED fogs from Theretrofitsource. I haven't really seen anything other than the newer SI's run these and a buddy of mine has them for his accord, but hasn't installed them yet. So, I decided to purchase these and give them a shot. (wasn't too bad as well price wise since they had a 25% off promo code)

So, first off. The packaging and how it was sent was great. Nothing was loose, moving, or missing.





As you can see, they are full LED fogs; not just the bulbs. From the website, there's more detailed information that I don't really feel like putting here. But, says 3 philips LED bulbs and is rated at 5500K.



First issue I came to was that the actual fog was bigger than the opening of the fog light cover. Now, I don't know if it's because I have ebay fog's (before) and it's just too small, but regardless, that is an issue that will come up.





But, I went ahead with the install anyway. What's a little bit of trimming gonna hurt? My bumper is jacked up anyway, so figured instead of tryna cut up my cover, lets try the bumper.




**There's a little "ledge/lip" right below the bottom of the fog. I'd say about 1/4 is the height; that's what I cut off with a razor blade. Not the prettiest, but it's behind the cover so can't see it.


Powered them on before putting everything together. It's plug n play. No ballast. No extra wire. Just have to match up the red/black with the connector from the harness.



After you finish putting everything on, you'll have product like so.



I haven't had time to do a night time shot, since well, I just got done. But, the install is pretty much straight forward. And from looks of what it looks like turned on in the daytime, it's bright and the overlapping of the fog light cover, doesn't seem to block the lighting. Will post a night time picture later this evening.

They do; but it's just a lamin-x film that I'm assuming that they put on prior to shipping it out. It's like $20 extra or something like that.

I'll try to post a nighttime picture sometime later this evening. It's raining but I'd like to adjust them since they're aimed too high.

This upgrade is more of a "just for looks" upgrade. They look nice and bright but the light output is going to be horrible. You'll be lucky to see five feet in front of you with just the fogs, hopefully I'm wrong but looking forward to the night pics

Well, looks like you just assumed everything. lol. It puts out 2400 Lumens and is rated at 5500K.



That is the cutoff for the fogs. I haven't adjusted them yet (as you can tell, it's a little too high) but for now, it's brighter than any OEM, LED bulb, or HID kit that I've seen.

Oh and....they're from Theretrofitsource. If you are second guessing them....you should probably do some homework. They work/make these and much more lights for a living...

Good LED lighting is legit, use them on my road (pedal) bike. 1000 lumens on the handlebars and 800 on my helmet. Very bright, even downhill at 30+ I don't outrun the beam.

I've really been debating upgrading to these...757 can you get more output pics like on the road with only fogs on, or perhaps aiming into a yard from afar or something to show true color and width? Thanks bruddah

Yeah man. I can do that. I still haven't adjusted them yet since I haven't had to use them. lol. But I've been meaning to aim them lower but it's been raining alot. But yeah man. I can do that.

Just be warned though. There's a bit of trimming to do. Maybe it's cause I have some ebay fogs (brackets and covers) but i had quite a bit to trim off the bumper (just the opening though.)

Awesome thanks man! You sound like me - one that only uses their fogs in inclement weather (when they're supposed to be used!) My fogs are never on...except when it's snowing or a torrential down pour ha

Looking forward to the pics!

Well, here are the pictures. I think I aimed/adjusted them to where I like. Not too high but I didn't want to do it that low.

This is just the fog lights that are on.





I tried to get the ground pattern as best I could. Sorries.

Looks about right. The width is the most stunning feature. I like mine so much I've resorted to using them on wide, empty highways and poorly lit back roads.

Your assumption would be correct. LED lighting has come such a long way, the moment I heard about these I've been actively doing background research on them since. Then fortune smiled on me and a member was selling a brand new set he no longer needed. Long story short; great units, hefty design, fantastic performance right out of the box, and (best of all) plug and play.

Gotcha. Yeah, they're pretty bright. Only had to use them about, maybe 2-3 times now. There was a 25% off coupon so figured I should hop on these. Probably one of the best $$ I've spent.

Yeah I did a retrofit with MH1 projectors on my old AV6 when I had it.

How are they with rocks and such? I'm going on my third set of fog lights thanks to cracked lenses due to rocks on the road. I don't drive on gravel, dirt roads, or anything like that. Mainly highway driving, Hawaii roads are just that terrible for debris.

I haven't had a cracked fog light since I started using Lamin-x film on them.

Yeah. TRS actually has an option of ordering a yellow laminx film as well. but apparently you have to put it on which I wasn't down with.

I would post some specs, but TRS website is blocked at work for some weird reason. But, it's all on the website on a serious note.

looks real nice just wish they were a bit cheaper. I sort of feel an HID kit on the stock fogs would net the same result, which is my dilemma right now :/. But man that light output looks better than some cars' stock lowbeams

No. HID kit in stock fogs will not even compare to these. if $130+ is too expensive for you, then you don't even begin to mod.

You're one of the "HID kits in stock housings are super bright bro!" type of guys huh?

I am considering getting these. I want a color that will match my Inspires, and what better way to do it then to get these. How are they still holding up? Happy with them still?

They look much brighter than stock, even though the light output, in lumens, I think is lower than stock.

Adding these to my list.

They are good. Holding up great. Takes a little bit of modding to get them to fit, but IMO, they are worth the money.

I didn't even say they were too expensive just that I wish they were cheaper, not the same thing,but yes on with ad hominem attacks

It's literally the exact same meaning. When one says "I wish it was cheaper" translates to "It's too expensive for me"

But hey, do you man.
