LED low beam/fog and hi-beams

Actually I was wrong saying I don't like the low beams, no they are great. However the fog lights are just a joke, same with the hi-beams. I gonna use a good HID kit for fog lights, not sure if I will keep halogen in he-beams or replace them with the xenon as well....






















I also took video of night driving, will post upon uploading...

I agree with you, oem fogs are a joke, they try to compensate low beams and fail horribly. Last weekend's project was installing LEDs on them, as you can see visibility is awesome. I'm still trying to fit HIDs on low beams though (tucson sport non-hid) but haven't been able since it's a special connector for them

wow..looks good to me for fog lights....What did you get? Why not just simply tap to the stock harness, especially yours halogen projectors are not adaptive?

I got Morimoto's LED kit for the fogs, as you can see they turned out better than I expected. Sadly here in PR we either get the ECO/Sport models without DBL (no adaptive whatsoever nor HID package) only stock halogen. Besides that there's the Limited model which comes with LED headlights.

I took a couple of pics (below) to explain what I meant on a previous post. The bulb connects to a plastic piece and that's what screws to the headlight housing. I can't connect the cables from the HID ballast because there's no clearance for them either.

Thats really suck man! The only one thing I can suggest is to brake that lid cap and seal it with the jubwad.....(whatever that name is... don't remember it know).

on my Elantra I installed ballast under the housing and run wires inside the headlamp thru the hole I drilled in.Try that approach then.

Wondering, for your fog lights. Did you simply replace the OEM bulb with an LED? Was it plug in simple? Part number?

From a '13 Murano to this? Yup!

It's pretty simple, you need to remove the plastic covers and screws from under the engine. Once you remove that you'll be able to see the OEM bulbs/harness on both sides and even the alignment bracket. Just plug and play no mod required. You can either use an H11 or H8 bulb, the fit's the same.
