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.

Specially Designed Fog Light LED Replacement on BMW 535i

The 10W high powered CREE LED is much brighter than traditional LED setups, due to the diffusion mirror that’s strategically placed in front of the LED bulb. These fog lights have a new reflector design that makes the bulb light up much brighter than the conventional design. This diffusion mirror creates a better beam pattern giving you a cut-off line look when compared to other conventional LED bulbs. It reflects outward, taking advantage of the reflector for maximum output and better performance.

Lexus CT200h 50W CREE H11 LED Fog Light Replacement

Ever since the release of our 50W CREE high power LED replacement bulbs, they have been used on a variety of cars that are looking for the most light output from an LED bulb. The extra components that have to be installed when getting HID or LED conversion kits makes them less desirable to some so they turn to replacement LED bulbs instead. These types of lights are not as bright as the conversion kits, but they still do a great job of producing an enormous amount of light from the bulb. This 50W CREE H11 LED bulb is the answer for this situation.

Lexus CT200h 50W CREE H11 LED Fog Light Bulbs 1

Each H11 CREE LED fog light bulb has ten individual LED diodes made by CREE; the chips used are the R4 XP-E series which are one of the brightest in the market today. There are eight on the side and two on the top underneath a magnifying optical lens projector which produces a lot of projection for visibility. The lights operate at 10W for a bright, yet reliable output capacity; these are rated to work up to 50W, but there will be heat issues associated with that. The unique design of the lights allow the light to project the light as well as provide a 360 degree output of shine which fills up the light housing very well.

Because these LED bulbs operate at 10W, they are ideal for usage as fog lights and daytime running lights. They are bright enough to be seen by other motorists, but not to the point where they can be used as primary driving lights. These particular 50W CREE H11 LED bulbs on this 2012 Lexus CT200H required no additional components for using it inside the fog lights, but using them inside daytime running lights may require decoders/resistors. European vehicles will also need the same type of resistor/decoder setup as well due to the error message system in place.

BMW E92 335is LCI with CREE LED Backup Reverse Lights

On many European vehicles, the reverse or back up light housing is quite small and does not produce much light to begin with so it makes it very difficult for you to see or others to notice you while you back up your vehicle. Due to the smaller housing size, larger and brighter bulbs are not able to fit so we are left with minimal options to get a super bright light. This is where using high power CREE LED diodes come in handy; these lights provide a large amount of light output for their small size.

Each bulb for this E92 LCI LED backup lights utilizes five CREE R4 XP-E diodes to produce approximately 500 lumen. The top portion uses an optical lens projector to throw out light behind the vehicle as well to increase the effectiveness. Each bulb has a maximum operating output of 25W and is 100% error free so there are no annoying error messages or flickering issues. Thanks to these features, the lights are about five times brighter than stock and about two times brighter than the competitors LED bulb.

Installation is also quite easy as it is plug and play. No modifications are required for installation. The factory bulb uses a very unique mounting bracket to hold the bulb in place and our LED bulb replaces the whole entire assembly instead. Thanks to the careful design of the lights, they have no issues with fitment and can be easily removed if desired at any time. This unique type of bulb design is only used on the 2011 and up BMW E92/93 3-Series Coupe/Convertible for the reverse lights; make sure you check out our installation guide to see the proper way to install these E92 LCI LED Reverse Lights.

Mercedes-Benz W204 C63 AMG with LED Eyelid Light Decoration

The parking lights are the small miniature lights that are also on with the low beam headlights at night, they serve as lights to be left on while parking (hence the name) and to provide positioning details of the car in the case of the headlight burning out. While they serve the same purpose one every vehicle, the names may differ from make to make; for example the Mercedes-Benz vehicles has them positioned on top of the headlights so it is called an “eyelid light”. Normally, these are regular incandescent halogen bulbs so they produce a yellow glow. This is an eye sore; especially for a Mercedes that comes with factory HID headlights which are bright white. Our LED replacement bulbs for the eyelids are the perfect solution to this problem.

The Mercedes W204 LED eyelid lights we carry are 100% plug and play so no modification is required for installation. The factory size for this W204 C63 AMG is a W5W, otherwise known as 2825/168/194; our 24-SMD 1210 T10 LED Replacement Bulbs are the perfect choice for this application. While these bulbs are slightly longer than the factory bulb so they may not fit in every housing, they fit perfectly in this Mercedes-Benz. These error free LED eyelid lights are very easy to install and works for many other Mercedes-Benz vehicles such as the 2005 E500, 2006 SLK350, and 2008 CLS500.

The built-in resistors on the LED bulb make these error free so they do not flicker or cause any error messages to appear on the dash to state that the bulb has burned out. The color is 6000K Xenon White so it is a perfect match for many of our other LED light. While these were tested on a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, it should also work for many other vehicles that can fit this and require error free bulbs. At 1.43” in length, these are about 1” longer than the traditional T10 bulb you would find on these vehicles so please make sure confirm these will inside the housing before purchasing.
