‘Tis the season to be jolly. Twinkling lights. Snow-covered fields. Christmas songs on the radio and … fog! Suddenly. Without warning. Completely out of the blue. I wouldn’t want you to suffer like I have in my “that’s NOT how to do it” car, the Ford Taunus, so I encourage you to think for a moment. Instead of asking Father Christmas for more socks, eco-friendly bath bombs or a voucher from a well-known online retailer, ask for light. Yes, light. You know that Christmas lists and all those subtle hints carefully dropped into conversation really don’t work, so just come out with it loud and clear: ask for LEDriving fog lamps from Osram, or buy them as presents for your loved ones, or treat yourself. Why? Hohoho … [sound of jingle bells] … there are plenty of good reasons.
Here’s a Christmas present for anyone who likes a bit of DIY, whether you’re buying it for yourself or for someone who loves tinkering. Bliss on Boxing Day sitting in front of the car with a toolbox by your side. Installing them really isn’t difficult, even for someone who is usually all fingers and thumbs. FOG lamps from the LEDriving series produce light that is very uniform thanks to LED light guide technology and are fog lights, daytime running lights and cornering lights all rolled into one. As replacements for most conventional round fog lamps with a diameter of 90 mm, they are so easy to install in the front valance that there is no need to call on the services of a mechanic. And let’s be honest – who doesn’t like spending a little time between Christmas and New Year working on their car? So you see – a perfect Christmas present. That’s going under the tree.
LEDriving FOG PL
If you like to be a little more individual in your choice of combined DRL/fog light at Christmas, then go for the PL version of the LED classic. PL stands for “Projection Lens”, and these round lamps in the shape of an eagle’s eye come in five different colors. At 6,000 K and with a life of 5,000 hours the FOG PL is brighter and lasts almost five times longer than a conventional H11 fog light. So it not only shines light into the darkness, it also shines color into the fog. The installation is easy. My colleague Fritz keeps going on about my yellow fog lights, so now you can show him how the professionals do it. That’s going under the tree.
The ultimate premium-quality fog slicers are currently our F1 lights. They also come in a round 90 mm enclosure and are virtually Plug & Play thanks to their integrated switchbox and controller. With a color temperature of 6,000 K they illuminate those areas at the side of the road that are difficult to see so there’s far less likelihood of you crashing into Santa’s badly parked sleigh. They also easily last 5,000 hours and have a lens that will withstand gravel impact. How to install it? Here we go. So there’s something for everyone there. That’s going under the tree.
You’ll be giving yourself or your loved ones not only an exciting and beautifully packaged high-tech product that you can install yourself but also a thoughtful present that may be the difference between life and death. If these fog lights help you see just one car or one pedestrian that you might otherwise have hit, then they are worth more than their weight in gold. You know I’m right. Order now in time for Christmas. What are you waiting for?! And next week, when you have happily unwrapped all your presents, I’ll take you on a little journey to a town brimming with Christmas illuminations. Hohoho.
