Adding spot and fog LED arrays


Recommended Posts

New BMW and MBZ have LED bars for low/high beams and fog lights. 

The Celica's OEM low, high beams and fog lights Halogen bulbs are dim, so I bought from eBay and added 1 spot LED beam in the center and 2 flood LED arrays on both sides for fog lights.

An off shelf wire harness in eBay connects all 3 bars with a wireless remote control.  They draw combined about 9 A, may be hard on the alternator, so I only turn them on occasionally.  It works great for driving on dark, rough roads with no or little traffic.  Have not seen problems with the electrical system.

Potentially you only need the spot beam in the center.  It projects a very bright and narrow beam out to over 1,000 ft
