Question Fog Light recommendations

Looking for a Halogen fog light replacement and have seen a few listed here in the forum but the ones in the write ups are not available at this time. Looking for recommendations for LED replacements for my 2019 Premier with LED headlights. I would like fog lights to match the color output of the LED headlights.


Thanks

First thing I wanted to do when I bought my 2019 Traverse Premier was change those awful yellow halogens. I just replaced them last night with the LasFit L1 LED bulbs per a previous thread recommendation. Looks amazing.

I just hate the fact they turn off after every engine cycle.

What do you mean "turn off after every engine cycle"?

Every time you turn the headlights on or they come on automatically after starting the engine you have to manually turn on the fog lights... they don't have a permanent "on" selection like our Pilot, Sonata or many other vehicles we've owned. I agree, it is annoying. I think more people would rather leave them on all the time then the few people who would complain about that on the rare occasions they use them.

Ah. Just got mine about 2 weeks ago, still learning the quirks. My Pathfinder had permanent on too.

When you turn the fog lights on it automatically disables the auto high beam feature. I find the auto high beam is quite useful on late night drives on a twisty two lane. Itís not much of an inconvenience to reach down with my left hand and push a small button. About the same effort as reaching with my right hand and put the car in drive.

I just don't understand how the design team can make that kind of decision... "nobody will ever use fog lights in non-foggy conditions so disable the auto-high beams so people aren't blinded when it's foggy out". Basically the design caters to the few rather than the many.

****, even Toyota has it right! The Corolla rental I had would let the fogs be on and auto high beam still function.

Well I got my Lasfit Fog Lights and put them in last night. Followed the instructions from this site and what an amazing difference. The pics above show the difference but...to see the difference for yourself after you change the ol yellowers, it's amazing.


Great choice of fog lights.
