9006 CREE LED Fog Lights on Acura MDX

High powered CREE LED bulbs do the job right when it comes to getting rid of that ugly stock incandescent bulb that your car rolled out of the factory with. These LED bulbs give you the matching HID look without having to dish out the price tag that comes with giving your car a whole new HID upgrade. You can use these 50W CREE LED Bulbs as fog lights or daytime lights to complement your headlights at night, or be the star of the show in the day.

How To Tell If Your LED Bulb Can Fit Into a Housing

When it comes to core bulb sizes and their derivatives, it’s good to know that these bulbs can fit into the same housing. These bulbs include:

9005 –> H10 (9145, 9155, 9150, 9140)
H11 –> H8 H9
880 –> 886, 889, 892, 893, 890, 862, 881, 884, 885. 894, 898, 899

Bulbs to the left of the arrow will be able to fit into the housing of their respective core bulbs to the right. This demonstration is based on the 9005 bulb with the H10 core.

The 9005 bulb is a derivative of the core H10 bulb, meaning that bulbs sizes such as the 9005, 9145, 9155, 9150, 9140 can fit into the H10 housing. At first glance, it may appear that the H10 bulb has tabs that cannot fit into the stock housing. Actually, the bulb can still fit into the housing with a little bit of twisting and maneuvering.

Here comes the best of the best, drum roll please!

LED halo rings are still crowned the king of all lighting mods and ever since BMW first came out with halo rings on the E39 5-Series, the rest of the world exploded in unison of approval. Whether or not you have a Euro, JDM, or American car, it’s pretty much guaranteed that LED halo rings will make your ride look bomb all day, every day. I can’t think of another mod that is so universally accepted or popular. At SEMA, halo rings were everywhere and we gathered some of our favorites.

2014 SEMA Auto Show Part 1: 2015 Ford Mustang

Looks like it’s that time of the year again where people from all walks of the car world gather together in Sin City’s Las Vegas Convention Center to see all of the industry’s latest products, greatest goods, and most epic car builds. There’s no mistaking that bright eyed anticipation of what this year’s SEMA show will bring and showcase. Last year, SEMA brought out 125,000 thousand people and it looks like that number will only increase year after year. While the SEMA show is not opened to the public (imagine the stampede that would cause), we are still able to attend and bring you the latest and greatest at this year’s SEMA.

Previous years featured the Nissan GTR in 2010, Chevy Camaro in 2011, the twins Scion FR-S/ Subaru BRZ in 2012, and the Lexus IS 250 350 in 2013. So what about this year?

The star of the show this year is the 2015 Ford Mustang, and more importantly, the King Cobra in all of its fierce glory. The crowd just erupted in cheers as the King Cobra was unveiled for good reason: this American bred animal brings in 600hp to the table and can conquer the quarter-mile in under 11 seconds. Just take a deep breath and absorb that info for a second.
