Ed, what color H11 bulbs did you get? Do they match the DLR lights and headlights?

They seem a little on the blue side as opposed to white.

I think Ed got these from that part number on the box:
https://www.amazon.com/Alla-Lighting-28 ... B07G5WJ4ZK

They're listed at 6500K, which is more bluish. If you want more white, get one that's between 4000K-5000K.

Hi,
Just casually looking at the lights at night, they look nearly the same color as the LED headlights. Maybe a slight difference, not much. Actually the "upgrade" did very little to improve the left-right illumination I was hoping for, I guess the reflector design is to blame for that. My Toyota van has fog lamps running H11 bulbs and are FAR superior in that regard to the Leaf's even with the LED bulbs. My goal was to be able to "see" the idiots walking around on dark rainy nights all dressed in black with their hoodies pulled up...Darwin was right.

Ed and Trigger,

Thanks for the reply. Was there a lot of space behind where you plug in the H8 socket? I’m looking at LED with cooling fans in the rear that may stick out a little more compare to what you’re using. Maybe 1.5-2.0” more.

Wouldn’t want to buy these only to find out there’s something close to the bulb area where it would hit.

Ed,

To access the fog light bulbs, remove three 10mm bolts? Just going by the pictures you posted. Pry down gently the flaps and grab the bulbs?
