LED Factory Fog Lamp Upgrade

Anyone purchase the OEM LED Fog Lamp Upgrade for second gen RDX offered by most Acura Dealers? Is the lighting significantly improved?

In the past I've done DIY Fog Lamp upgrades with mixed results.

I would recommend the LED fog lights from theretrofitsource.com

Plug and play, and significantly cheaper than OEM. Light output is awesome.

i have the OEM LED fogs and it does improve the lighting IMO. I also like the blue housing.

I bought a $50 ebay kit, and I'm very happy with them.Light output is evenly spread. A lot better than the halogen oem. I hadn't seen the Morimoto kit prior to purchasing. The Morimoto looks like a nice kit.

See the thread from Gadjetjq https://acurazine.com/forums/2g-rdx-...cement-952127/

I did it on both my 2017 RDXs and am very happy.
