2018 Leaf SV led fog upgrade?

So I just leased a 2018 SV and it has the very nice bright led headlights. I was very happy when I first used them due to the brightness, but I was not to impressed with the fogs. Mine are incandescent and look awful. Has anyone replaced with LED's? any issues or color/temp matching problems. I'd like to change the interior to.

Those little lights are not significantly improving the light. I would not waste any money or effort in changing the lights.

Also don't change the interior. If you lease, you will lose all the money and effort you have spent.... Don't improve something you don't own and have to give back.

A LED makes a nice improvement for interior & trunk (~ $2 for each LED).

YES! LED Fog Lamps are a huge improvement! Bought these off The Big A-zon for around $25 took all of 30 minutes to install (with power driver). They're not listed as H8...but H11 and are compatible according "to them". ;)
No night drive yet but they're almost as bright as the LED headlamps...just gotta be better! Now, will they last???

Yeah, You may like how bright they are...

But you may not be so popular with your brighter-than-the-sun lights with other drivers.

Even if you put LEDs in your regular headlight lenses, they are not made to handle (and focus) the higher intensity light so that you don't blind people..

Don't know about the 2018, but Gen1 LEAFS trunk-light was atrocious due to placement of the single light and the weak incan bulb made it practically useless. I found an LED replacement that was much brighter. The placement of the light still sucks but at least I can see inside the cargo area.

Would the OP please add "Fog Light" or "Driving Light" to the title?

Did it to both the '13 & '18.
