Terrific lights. Just what I needed for the rv. Much better price via Amazon than local.

HASH(0x9b96503c) out of 5 stars Great lights, good beam pattern Feb. 6 2012
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I recently installed these under the bumper on my '99 Suburban (with the lens properly oriented for that usage), and they are awesome. Great beam pattern, with a very sharp cut-off. They throw light wide and just in front of the truck, which is exactly what fog lights are supposed to do. We had some snow and fog in my area recently, and these were a great addition that made it easy to see what was in right front of me and just off to the sides.

I used my own custom switch, relay, and wiring setup, so I can't comment on the wiring kit that comes with these lights. It looks like a reasonable wiring setup and has good instructions, I just wanted a more custom install on my rig with switches that were better integrated into my dashboard and to use a custom wiring harness to drive all of my improved lighting (fog lights, driving lights, relay kit on factory headlamps, and extra back-up lights) without having a mess of wiring all over the place. For just adding one set of lights, the wiring kit should be just fine.

NOTE: If you break a lens on almost any Hella light, you pretty much have to buy a replacement single lamp, which is about half as much as the cost of the original kit. If you can even get a single replacement lens by itself, it's usually just as much as buying a single lamp. I found this out the hard way because my wife had the bad luck to hit an errant box that was bouncing around on the road and it caught one of these fog lights hard enough to crack the lens and nearly pull the light off it's mount. The light still works and was able to be adjusted again, but it's only a matter of time before the lens fails completely and falls out. Maybe the rock covers that come with the lights aren't such a bad idea to leave installed, but I use these lights enough to make the covers a hassle to remove every time I want to use them... Maybe if the lights weren't so darned good I wouldn't be tempted to use them quite so much... :-)

HASH(0x9b965438) out of 5 stars This kit is worth the price and effort to install Oct. 27 2013
By Herb - Published on Amazon.com

These Hella 550 fog lights provide much needed light to low beams while not blinding oncoming drivers, and have a wide beam good for fog and seeing around turns.

The lights and mounting hardware are solid despite the plastic back enclosure. The lights are large so they should be mounted to a sturdy metal part. Adjustment is easy thanks to a well designed bracket. They can be mounted upside down as well.

The included wiring harness is fine, but depending on the application (like connecting to an existing switch) extra parts or wiring might be required.

The covers are not useful because they aren't made to be used with the lights on. It's a pain to worry about putting them on and taking them off. Otherwise, it's a high quality kit and it's made in Germany. It's perfect for someone with a truck where there is plenty of mounting space, but will require a little more work to mount them on a smaller car.

HASH(0x9b96569c) out of 5 stars Recommended, great final product. Assembly required. Jan. 7 2015
By M - Published on Amazon.com

Overall rating: 4/5 stars. I would recommend the lights overall because the installed, finished product is great. I'm happy to have the lights on my truck. That said, the user should be prepared to do a good bit of work for the install.

Mounting 5/5 stars:
I installed these lights on my 1995 Toyota Tacoma. Mounting the lights was accomplished using two 2" wide x 5-3/16" long 90 degree "concrete angle" steel pieces from the hardware store at a cost of a couple dollars each, combined with bolts, nuts, and washers. The steel pieces had one hole pre-drilled on each side of the 90 degree angle, about 1/2" from each end, perfect for this application. I do not have a dedicated light bar or brush guard. My truck has a sub-structure for mounting the bumper, radiator, etc. that already has holes for mounting things like this. I mounted the lights on that sub-structure. The kit includes a steel bracket that clamps to the light housing with a bolt and nut as well as a second nut, bolt, and washer for mounting to your vehicle. Mounting the lights was the easiest part of the process for me.

Instructions: 3/5 stars
I'm not sure if the other reviewers received the same instructions that I did. My wiring instructions were pretty minimal. My instructions included two wiring schematics (one for low-beam operation, one for high or low-beam operation), a diagram for aiming the lights, a diagram showing how to assemble the mounting part of the light, and a diagram showing how to connect the positive and negative leads to the lightbulb. Mounting the lights, connecting the lightbulbs, and aiming the lights are pretty straightforward even without diagrams but the diagrams are worthwhile. The wiring schematics were the real letdown for me, specifically the assumption that the user will know how and where to splice the fog light system's green and blue wires into the vehicle's parking lights and low-beam headlights. I'm guessing lots of people know how / where to do this splice. I did not know where or how to do this splice and the schematic didn't provide the detail I needed to complete this task. I ended up wiring the entire system, mounting the relay and switch, and taking my truck to an auto electrical shop for them to complete the low-beam and parking light splice.

Provided parts: 3/5 stars
The lightbulbs themselves are high quality and provide bright, white light. For installation, the leads are easy to connect to the lightbulb using provided wires and crimp terminals. The housing for each light is plastic. The plastic for the housing seems pretty sturdy. My concern with the housing is the fit. The plastic housing includes a hole in the rear for running the bulb's + and - wires. This hole is about 1/2" in diameter, much larger than necessary for the two wires. Also, the housing seal is moderately tight around the lens. Time will tell if the housing is water tight enough to protect the insides. The kit does include a rubber stopper (probably intended to stop up the hole in the back of the housing?) but the stopper does not fit in the hole with wires in place and there is no [obvious] way to run the wires through the stopper. My suggestion is for Hella to make the hole in the rear of the plastic housing the proper size for two wires, forget about the stopper, and provide a gasket to create a seal between the housing and lens. The provided mounting hardware seems sturdy; steel bolts and brackets clamping to the plastic housing. The lenses are heavy and seem to be high quality glass. The fuse relay and switch are good quality. The switch includes a built-in green LED to indicate that the fog lights are turned on. Nice touch. It's worth noting that the kit includes wires and various connectors, the end user will need cut wires to length and apply all of the crimp and ring terminals. I'd recommend buying yourself some heat shrink tubing and zip ties to make the wiring process safer, stronger, and neater.

Light production: 5/5 stars
The light produced by the kit is outstanding and is the kit's saving grace in my opinion. The pattern is wide and forward light penetration is relatively shallow. Each beam spreads light across an arc of around 140 degrees. The light pattern makes the road much, much brighter immediately in front, and to the side of the vehicle. The light the lens/bulb combination provides is excellent, even with the provided stock bulbs. I would buy the stock Hella bulbs again as needed, they are that good.

Stone shields: 1/5 stars
I would rank the provided stone shields 0 out of 5 stars but I suppose the fact that the lights come with stone shields at all is worth 1 star. If you order these fog lights, I'd recommend ordering two of the clear stone shields as well (HELLA Clear Stone Shield for 550 Series Lamp). The white plastic covers that come with the lamps are completely useless unless you intend to remove and keep up with the covers EVERY time you want to use the fog lights. Yes, the white plastic covers will protect your lights but you can't use the lights unless you remove the covers. What's even the point if the lights are unprotected every time you want to use them? Do yourself a favor and buy the clear stone shields.

HASH(0x9b965a44) out of 5 stars Great lights! April 27 2015

Got these installed on a later 80's 4x4 wagon. I installed them close to the ground below the front bumper. They are worth their weight in gold. I primarily use them for off-road use as they do an excellent job highlighting terrain features. Imagine freezing the flash on a camera & that is the effect... brilliant white light that crisply highlights every rock and pebble, berm and obstruction on the USFS roads I drive on. They are also very good for the weird twilight hours just after the sun has set when ambient light conditions and oncoming headlights in urban areas tend to wash out features on urban roads. Finally, I have used them in the fog and while they do work well keeping me centered between the median and fog line/shoulder, they don't work so well for fog penetration but I've never seen a light that has. Also, the 550 on the left side of my vehicle recently took a rock or something and while the glass has cracked, the light still functions and water has not been able to penetrate the light. Well worth picking up a set of these if you are serious about driving and safety.

Over the years the newer cars have much better headlights than the old ones. When I bought my old 91 Camaro convertable back after 14 years I remembered how crappie the headlights were. I replaced the sealed beams with really good halogen glass lamps. They helped put more light on the road but not as much as I'm used to. I decided to add these Hella fog lamps even though the reviews stated they were rather large. Let me tell you that if better night vision is what you are after you can't go wrong adding these. The light pattern is perfect, bright and clear. The parts were packaged very well. Don't rush the installation. Make sure the lamps are solidly mounted so the beam pattern stays exactly where you aim them. Now my old convertable shines as good as the newer cars on the road.
