I spent all day today doing the H7 fog light conversion and OMFG are they bright as hell. Took me about an hour per light and they look great. I'll take pics later tonight and post them... I'd highly recommend this to anyone. I used my dremmel, some H7 silverstars. If people want to, ship me your fogs and I'll do it for them for free :P

whoa, last pic i'm seeing some dancing stick people...

lol

nice mod, but don't you get the same increased light output with some H1 silverstars?

I heard from el pres that H1 and H7 give up basically the same light output, if they are the same type of bulbs (silverstars)

edit: oops, nevermind, looks like you can use higher wattage bulbs with this mod....? isnt it dangerous though?

what watt bulb are you using ?

EDIT #2: hmm...looks like you get MORE OUTPUT if you just used H1 silverstars in the fogs...according to sylvanias specs:

H7 Silverstars:
Lumens: 1350 +/- 12%
55 WATTS

H1 Silverstars:
Lumens: 1410 +/- 210 lm
65 WATTS


EHHHH????

shit I don't know :P it was fun and the bulb is bigger plus it looks great... It might be brighter with the h1 but the actual output I think is higher, like the distance with a h7

Yeah, h1 and h7 are basically the same. All one really needs to do to brighten their fog lights is add a higher wattage bulb.

Oh well, at least you got to drill on your car and stuff.
