JDM REPLICA FOGS FAIL!!! HOUSING MELTED ON ME..





i brought these off the group buy not too long ago..just installed not even a month ago..was using some piaa ion yellows..took them off to install some lamin-x last weekend to discover the plastic holding the bulbs melted!!! !@@#$%^&!!! due to the pressure being applied from the clip holding the bulb in place, the metal piece attached to the bulb was melting right through the front of the inside of the housing..

so jdm replica fog owners BEWARE...we were the guinea pigs and as Brash22 and prob others expected or mentioned somewhere in this forum THE REPLICA FOGS ARE HALF ASS, CHEAP!!!!!!!! TOTAL WASTE OF MY MONEY$$$.

as they say you pay for what you get, dont know why i was thinking this'd be the exception..atleast the wire harness works properly, hopefully that doesnt stall on me somewhere along the line..


will now look to buy genuine jdm foglight L/R assembly...ANYONE????]


AND LAST, anybody interested in buying the damaged L & R housings for a personal project or anything...i'll take offers, if no i totally understand lol.

i'm no expert at opening lights up otherwise i'd take a stab at it and do some custom ****..only thing damaged is the opening that holds the bulb..

sorry for the crappy quality pics, taken w/ crappy cellphone cam..

Re: JDM REPLICA FOGS FAIL!!! HOUSING MELTED ON ME..

you were not supposed to use any brighter/hotter bulbs for these things. Thats the only thing that you have to long at when you buy em. if you were planning on putting hids or ions or watever, then these were not for you. Other than that the fog lights are not that bad for the price that i paid for them (130 shipped)
