BRIGHT FOG LIGHT BULBS

Has anyone changed there factory fog light bulbs on the 2016 or 2017 rav?
I have bought several bulbs but they don't work. Need something bright to go with the LED head lights. Hopefully someone has bought bulbs somewhere and they can lead down the right path. Thank You

Have been wanting to do the same thing. The LED headlights look great, but when you turn the fogs on there is much left to be desired when it comes to brightness and colour temperature.

Any halogen replacement I have looked at doesn't do it for me.
Have been considering a 35w HID conversion kit for them.

LASFIT

I did it on my 16 XLE, the upgrade is well worth it and very easy to do. Factory bulbs are H16, replacements are H11 they fit without issues.

Fog lights ON


OFF


Off


On.

Yes they are super bright, but still won't blind incoming traffic. I had them for two weeks more or less, always use them while driving so far awesome.

Hey all, n00b poster here so please don't shoot the messenger ...I just read about this in another thread and someone said it's actually better to have the yellow lights in fog - that's why they're there. I also thought it looked weird and love the way the brighter ones look, but apparently the yellow ones actually have a function and purpose...I'll post the thread if I find it! Can anyone verify?

Seagirl, That's true if you are going to drive in foggy conditions.

If you want to go bright, you should consider just going HIDs for your fogs. Even if you invest a lot of money into the bright LEDs, it wouldn't be a match to 35w, 55w HIDs. However, since the wattage is really low on our stock bulb and the fog housing itself is really small if you were to put higher wattage like the 35w the heat might create a problem for the housing itself and the wire.

The Lasfits are the way to go, especially for avoiding issues like you pointed out like heat and damage to wires. My headlights and fogs are both Lasfit LEDs and it more than enough light for me at night very happy with that setup
