    Default Anyone install PIAA LED 530 lights?

    Just ordered the PIAA LED 530 fog lights. Hope to fit onto
    a 2011 Kia Soul +. IF to large to fit inside bumper guard where fog light
    cut out is located considering custom mount to fit on bumper then through
    the bumper cover. Would be tricky for sure. If I can't do before the weather
    changes will use them on my Honda Scooter (a PS-250, BIG RUCKUS). I have
    to work outdoors as I don't have a big garage to work in.

    Chose these lights because of PIAAs that I've used have been of highest
    quality. The LED technology has come a long way. NO load on the electrical
    system is it's real asset. The Kia Soul only has a 400 watt alternator so I
    have to watch my accessories' load.

    Another benefit of LED lights is that it gives off very little heat, compared to traditional Halogen lamps, this means you can cut your opening extra close, where in regular bulb installs, you had to leave a gap around the light so it could air out and vent.

    I would cut out cardboard, to size out the install, see how it installs, then use the cardboard as a template once you have it perfect.

    Even the white LED lights which are available do not produce completely white light. These actually have a bluish tinge which can affect the color temperature of any photo. The tinge is caused because of the LED light emitting both blue and yellow light together to try and look like white. This can make the image look cold.
