What We Don’t Like

The majority of users gives only positive feedback about these lights. However, some have reported that the Halogen bulbs doesn’t last long and needs regular replacement. This is however one of the drawbacks of Halogen lights, since they provide light by heating a filament with electricity. Halogen lights are quite power consuming on your electrical system as well.

Another complaint that some users had, is that when the fog lights are mounted to a bar the light is not steady due to road vibrations that translate to the light. Halogen lights are generally more affected by vibrations, but the mounting point might also be an issue.

A few users have also not been happy with the on, off switch and said the quality of that is poor.

Buying Advice
