Hard to miss the bugs, huh? HAHA!! The lights came in at lunch and my wife had the car all day. Whenever she got in this evening, I had to install them. She had to cross the lake and the bugs are CRAZY! Maybe I can photo shop them... or just wash the car tomorrow. lol

Very nice!!! I havent installed my dual color oracles yet. :( But they are in a box next to my desk to stare at. When I get around to installing them hopefully mine will come out as pretty as yours.

Took about 15 minutes to install the lights. It was super easy.
Here is the link for the lights.

Nope, just remove a few hex screws and pull the fender well liner away from the fender. Your hand will easily fit inside to change the bulbs.

You just have to turn your wheels to the left while working on the right light, and vice versa. There are 3 hex screws on each side. VERY easy.

I got the LED lights. They included the "harness" with the lights. It's just two jumper wires that ties in the DRLs with the headlights.

Is there a write up on how to get the DRL's working as fog lights?
Also- is it a manual fog light (activated by a switch) or do they just automatically come on with the headlights?

What size hex did you use for the three screws? It's documented one place as T15 and another as T20.

Is there any video or write up on how to install the harness that comes with the led bulbs I just ordered the kit and like to see how the harness goes in. Also can I still kept my halos on the automatic Setting so when it gets dark the will come on by them self.

The hex screws are #15. The harness that comes with it IS NOT a harness at all. It's two jumper wires that ties the DRL lights in with the sidemarker lights. The DRL's come on while driving as normal during the day. At night when your headlights come on (manually or auto), the DRL's act as foglights since they are powered by the sidemarker (park) lights.
They send detailed wiring instructions with the lights, and pictures are included.
