I finally got my Mtech bumper on and those fogs lights , light up a ugly yellow color, i was considering on getting the lumikos from SPP but i found out they are 80 watts compared to the stock 55 watts i have now.. are there any adv/ disad on putting in the 80 watts vs the 55?

Also are they H11's or 9006 eric isnt even sure.. i have 2002 325 w/ Mtech bumper and the fogs that go w/ it.

any other info would be appreciated as in what your thougts are.. or if there is abetter bulb or company i should look at .. trying to match my xeons as close as possible w/o spending a horrible amount of money

thanks

I just got a set of the Halogen Licht Technik from SPP. I used to have the Lumikos but they were 80W and wasn't comfortable with the higher wattage rating.

The Halogen Licht Technik bulbs are a perfect match with the Xenon's. So far I liked them better than my previous lumikos...but, I just put them on so we'll see how they hold up over time.

I'm gonna try to post some pics later on..

I've been running with the 9006 55W Lumikos bulbs for 6 months now and haven't had a single problem with them, they match my Xenons perfectly and I definitely notice no more yellowish hue like the stock fogs had....had recommend them...white ones not blue

I just got my lumikos last nite from UPS and put them on.. they are not as yellow as the stock fogs are, not bad for 27 buks, just hope they hold up. I wish they were a litttle whiter and brighter then it would match up more .. but overall.. not a bad deal :thumbup:

i have the Halogen Licht Technik 55W bulbs and they match up pretty well w/ my xenons. if you compare them really closely against the xenons, they have a slight yellowish tinge. but it's really hard to tell unless you're really looking for the difference and pretty much can't see the difference at all at a distance. i'm pretty happy with mine and would recommend them.
