    Hi everyone, I just installed these bulbs and wanted to follow up on Oilypablo's post.

    Everything about the instructions were spot on with the exception of the socket size, I used a 10mm. Here are a few pictures I took to document the process. One more thing to note, after removing the 2 push-pin clips and 10mm bolt the plastic shield will hang down enough with plenty of room to work. I did not have to completely remove the plastic piece to get to each bulb. Just as Oilypablo suggested, I used ramps for easy access. On to the pics:

    I've sat in my garage in the dark and could not see any change when I turned the fog lights on or off with my 2014. Really pathetic.

    My question is, do the fogs (even with the new yellow bulbs) actually DO anything productive, or are they just for show? That is, assuming you have your low beams turned on, do the fogs add any value? I doubt anyone is really running with their fogs and not their low beams anyway.

    If the fogs don't ADD to the low beams, then I won't even bother upgrading them to the yellows. To be honest, I got my fogs along with the premium package just so I could get the all-weather package anyway. If I had a choice, I wouldn't have added the fogs.

    The housing has a shield in it that doesnt let out a lot of light. The IPF fogs had no shield and you can see the difference. Now they are not being produced anymore. A retrofit with halogen or HID projector is my goal. Im only concerned about the ability to aim them.

    I actually have a non fog blinker stalk and swp covers that came boxed from factory if you thought about taking them out

    Is it possible to open the factory fog housing?

    OK I think in real fog and snow and heavy rain the Optilux Yellow Hellas do help a bit and really are worth the money. But I'm just needing more light..........so I'm kicking it up on notch. I got the yellow lens paint and just ordered two Philips 9012's.

    I'll save the paint for later, I just don't have time to properly paint right now.

    Is it possible or desirable to remove that shield?

    My gut tells me it would not be easy to simply to remove the shield. Also not sure about being able to open it. I'm sure I could frankenstein this somehow. I won't be attempting it until later in the year.

    I had that same feeling - last time I was looking under the car I didn't even think about it, hence my asking. Thanks.

    Just tested the Yellow Lamin-X film and 9012 HIR bulbs. They are brighter than the Hella 9006's, slightly. I took the whole fog light assembly out, the Lamin-X film install was a snap and the trimmed 9012 HIR's fit perfectly. I cleaned and razor bladed the lens surface first as there was some type of tape adhesive residue on the lens I had not noticed before. All in all - not as orange-yellow as the Hella, but yellow bright never the less.

    As for the design of the lamp assembly and blocker cap for the bulb. I suppose one could indeed open the assembly and remove that cap, but I was not feeling adventurous and had a ton of stuff to do. I would love for someone to enter that forbidden zone!

    Also, no one has mentioned there is an adjustment screw with a white gear inside. Has anyone adjusted them?
