Talking Fog Lights?

So, My fog lights havent worked for as long as i can remember. Ive checked the wirering,fuses, and bulbs, everything is good. Also the plastic connector is good. I got a new rocker switch, but im waiting to get knew bulbs. Any ideas on where to get some good LEDs for the fog lights?

eBay.

Then if you do that your fogs will be worthless and not do their function since LEDs don't produce as much light as incandascents. In the past I thought about getting 880 yellow LEDs for fogs to give me a "3k HID" look but I wanted my fogs to actually do something functionality wise.

If I do end up getting 5k HIDs for my headlights I might get some 880 Hyper OMGIMJDMZZZ yellow fog light bulbs because I think the HIDs will drown out my fogs and then they'll look too dull.

Did you get a volt meter to see if it was putting out 12v? You can get one from harbor freight for like $3. Mine is 4 years old and working fine.

Also i wouldn't go LEDs. Get some 880/893 eurodezigns off ebay. Life time replacement also.
