Converting Toyota Vios Fog Lamps From HID to LED Bulbs

I’ve decided to convert the Toyota Vios fog lamps HID 5000K  to LED bulbs after 3 years due the bad reliability of the HID ballast . I’ve ordered the H11, LED bulbs from lelong.com.my that cost me RM141.00.

    Hi Kevin,
    I get the H11 LED in accessories shop… H11 is standard bulb size for most of the car's fog lamp, you should be able to get it.

    H11 Osram won't spoil the fog lamp as HID bulb. HID bulb produce intensive heat during operating, thus will damage the cover lens of the fog lamp.

    Hope my advise helped you 🙂

  3. Thx so much from your info. Appreciated. where you get the H 11 LED? if I use H 11 Osram Bulb Night Breaker Unlimited, izit will spoiled my fog lamp?

  5. New Toyota Vios can fog lamp can fit with H 11 Osram Bulb?

  6. By choosing HID bulb you have taken a wise decision because HIDs are bright lights and which used to come in premium cars only. They are available at affordable prices. Also, thank you very much for displaying the step by step process of changing the bulb.
