Yellow Fogs



Along with the H9 conversion, the lens tint makes the OEM fogs not so crappy. Will post up night shots shortly.

If you're in the WA area, contact up Sean @ www.guardlineppf.com. I believe they sell pre-cut kits as well.

I like them. My wife has a '12 RAV4 and she wants yellow OEM style fogs on it.

Yellow fogs are great, especially in the rain!

Are the 08-10 highlander fogs the same size as the 11-13? If they are lamin-x sells precut yellow Covers for the highlander...

I use these luminics bulbs on my Solara and they work great! No need for film over your lenses.

Sorry I didn't check that. But according to Sylvania automotive lighting guide online, it says a 2012 Highlander bulb size is a H11. Luminics has that size in yellow.

the h11 would be for the low beams... fog lights are a different type of bulb which is 12277

Considering there has already been a post on here where somebody started burning the 2011+ fog lens from using a higher wattage bulb, I would be very afraid of using a 65 watt bulb in that housing...

edit:wait...h9 conversion...you talking for the low beam's h11s?

love the classic, yellow fog look.

What is the H9 conversion you are talking of?

What is the best solution at this point for 2011 Highlander?

Ideally I would like something that is just plug and play, a stock size bulb in yellow but if I'm not mistaken that doesn't exist, right?

So I like this idea of the yellow film, which can always be removed....

How much is the approx. cost?

Does the film significantly dim the bulb, if so is that why you did this "H9 conversion"??

I don't think I want the h9 conversion....if it involves cutting wires, using higher wattage bulb, modifying housing etc...??

THESE are plug and play. I can't recommend them since I haven't used them, but this turned up in a google search.

I'm sorry, the H9 conversion I was referring to was for the headlights, H11 to H9. It cost around $30 for the fog tint install, I believe it's cheaper if you opt for the pre-cut film itself. IMO, it did not dim but the fogs much better.

Sorry for the crappy phone pics, I'll try to get a hold of a better camera.

Not a bad idea with the yellow film overlay, extra protection on the lens...
