2011 2.5 Limited Cypress Green
Thank you sir, I'm looking forward to hearing from you. I already ordered a red led panel, following the advice on VLEDs and other web sites, so I guess I'll find out how that works.Budaru, I have read around, and cannot not find a definite answer on that either, I also read that a white LED behind a red lense uses more power than a red LED because it produces light on different spectrums that gets filtered out anyways by the colored lens. So in the case of brake lights, it would be better to use a red LED White LED through a red lens can look somewhat pinkish which i discovered when i shined my LED flashlight into the reflectors.
I will try to do cut the reflector open Friday evening, and take some pics of them with the lights in. I am still getting my garage squared away from my move.
...take pics of the process you go through to do this. I would really like to see that. I have had that reflector out...it is very skinnyThe VLed panels are bright enough. Have one of the 12 led 6watt panels to insert into the bumper reflectors. Light goes through very well. I will attempt to take a pic this week of the light in the reflector. Have tocut them open first
Kudos for the Jogo-man for doing it right. I can see a need myself during elk season when I drive up through winding mountain hwys.I installed/wired red fog light same as OEM Subarus have it in EU; i.e. in the left backup light.
Here it is for Calif. Your State may have a different law(s)...Kudos for the Jogo-man for doing it right. I can see a need myself during elk season when I drive up through winding mountain hwys.
I’ll need to read up on the latest regs, but last I read was they’re still illegal in USA/Japan. So the factory positions give you stealth mode. But if you’re going to use the L-Rear reflector position, IIRC (newish) euro TUV places it above bumper and off center to the left. Using other than red lights = cop magnet.<O</O
Effective but why isn’t it available here, same reason headlight levelers aren’t either – people don’t even know how to use roundabouts.
OMG they even specify that the switch has to lighted amber. Oops mine is red, keeping with the red lighting of the dash. Oh wellHere it is for Calif. Your State may have a different law(s)...
V C Section 24602 Fog Taillamps
As far as I know, some States don't even regulate rear fog lights... like FL, if I am not mistaken!
WOW - I must have it Calif. legal then - my switch for rear fog on my dash board is amber/yellow - and I did not really follow Calif. law - I thought, when my front fogs are yellow then my rear fog light switch must be yellow even though the fogs are red ... go figure!OMG they even specify that the switch has to lighted amber. Oops mine is red, keeping with the red lighting of the dash. Oh well
I agree. If there's a cop inside my car where he can see my fog light switch color, I've likely got much bigger problems.I'm fairly certain you guys are safe....I've never heard of anyone being cited for a "fog light switch color" violation LOL
Especially since, to see the switch he'd have to be in your lap :gasp: LOL!I agree. If there's a cop inside my car where he can see my fog light switch color, I've likely got much bigger problems.
You just love busting my balls don't you Jogo? My little brother was like this when he was 10 years old...had a comment for everything....Hoppyjr: Not really - after you roll down your window, followed by "your drivers license and registration, please" the fog switch is in plain view from the outside ...LOL... but, as Budaru said, chances to get cited for that "violation" are slim or none.....
