if i can hear the fans over the car engine noise then that sounds horrible... i can't imagine hearing it that loudly over the idling.. can anyone with the opt7 kit confirm this?
Can't hear anything while driving but yes, I do hear the fan when i turn off the engine. It's just a tiny noise that you know something's running, and in this case you shouldn't care about it anymore because the moment you turn off the car the next thing is to leave. Not a big deal for me.

yeah that's good to know.. how long does it make the noise after car is turned off and how loud would you say it is? i've seen some led kits with the bulb having some type of material that cools it down.. copper threading i think..

according to your link for the Phillips, it states they are H8/H11 ? I thought these were two different bulbs? aren't the H8 FOGS AND H11 HEADLAMPS ?

I think the Sirius fogs are blinding people since it shoots in all directions. Look at these pics; one with dogs off and one with fogs on. The fog lights are shining over the headlights.

Few more pics at night, the lens were misty from the rain so the light spread pic against the garage isn't the purest but i doubt its much of a factor. First time i ever had fog lights, its surprising how much of a difference it makes. For anyone still looking for LED fog lights I highly recommend getting one without a LED on top. When its only on the sides the spread is closer to a halogen bulb, less worries about blinding drivers IMO.

I got my Opt7s in the mail for my EXL Coupe...are the included drivers,capacitors, and flip adaptors necessary for LEDs to work?

Connect the bulbs to the driver and use one of the adapters to connect to the car. After that you can enjoy. :)
