Man what a difference... I'll get then on the road after dark.

This was during replacement. Changed both fog lights and head lights.

Hell yeah man. You're gonna notice a huge difference. You might have to aim them though. I had to on both set I put in my car and my truck. Might have to rotate the bulb in the socket and mess with the screw adjustments on the headlight housing.

I'm going to check it tonight- the new one basically lined up with the old one on the garage wall.

Honestly, that car was unsafe to drive at night with the old bulbs... I couldn't see the lines on the road when there was oncoming traffic.

Im about to go get a polishing kit to clear up the lenses.

And polishing kits are not worth $30+ to me. Came back home and worked on each lens about 5 minutes with some Colgate and a piece of old t shirt...
Before and after-

Man what a difference! Drove home from Mom's house after dark and for the first time driving this car, I didn't need the fog lights to be able to see up close. And the high beams are amazing.

Best $65 I've spent on car parts in a long time. Although I could have saved $20 because the fog lights aren't necessary anymore.

I should have done this a long time ago and not waited for a bulb to burn out.
