Factory fog lights are built to meet minimum output requirements. Every aftermarket design available provides similar lackluster performance, but with an LED. The focus has been on LED appearance, not increased output. There has never been an aftermarket fog light designed from the ground up for performance - until now.

Diode Dynamics is excited to introduce our Elite Series Fog Lamps!


The first OE-style fog lights that were designed for true performance. With a custom-engineered patent-pending optic, multi-die automotive emitters, and high-power full-copper circuit boards, the Elite Series fog light delivers up to 5 times more output than halogen lamps. With a plug-and-play installation, this is one of the easiest and most effective upgrades you can make to improve your visibility in inclement weather.

Output that Outperforms. The Elite Series Fog Lamp is built around a highly-engineered single-piece PMMA lens. This optic was carefully designed using advanced optical simulation software to produce a light pattern that is wider than any other aftermarket fog lamp on the market, with an 80-degree spread of highly intense light. Even with this extremely wide band of light, the pattern is extremely smooth throughout, with an extremely sharp cutoff to avoid glare to other drivers, including a BMW-style “color flicker” at the very edge of the pattern. Diode Dynamics engineers accomplished all this while still meeting SAE F3 fog light standards, for legal on-road use. Please check your local laws and regulations for aiming, installation, and applicability.


White or Yellow. All Elite Series Fog Lamps are available in a cool white or selective yellow output color.

The white is a 6000K color temperature, which is a true cool white output. This will perfectly match other LEDs on your vehicle, such as DRLs or running lights. The white option also offers a premium BMW-style color band at the very top of the beam pattern.


The selective yellow option is 3000K in color temperature, which is great for high contrast in inclement weather, or in providing a distinctive look on the road. The yellow lamp consists of a yellow multi-die LED emitter paired with a yellow-tinted lens, to provide unmatched output and optical efficiency, even with the intense yellow output.


Backlight Functionality. All Elite Series Fog Lamps come standard with an integrated amber accent light. This backlight feature fully illuminates the main lens with amber LEDs, intended to match other position, sidemarker, or corner lights on your vehicle. This feature can be wired to any constant 12-volt source for your desired vehicle function, using the included tap connector. It will shut off automatically if the main beam is activated. Check local laws and regulations for acceptable use.

Bolt-On Fitment. Elite Series Fog Lamps can be installed on most vehicles in minutes. Simply remove your factory fog light assembly and ours will bolt right in its place, using sturdy glass-fiber-reinforced brackets. With built-in adjustment, the lamps can be aimed after installation. To wire them up, a pair of waterproof plug-and-play adapters are included to connect the lights to your factory bulb sockets.


Proven Reliability - Backed for 8 Years. Like our popular Stage Series lineup, Elite Series LED lamps have been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like factory components on your vehicle. With integrated moisture-proof vents, the lamps can “breath” with changes in temperature, maintaining a strong seal over time. And with built-in circuit protection for voltage spikes and reverse polarity, these lights will keep working for years. They are backed by an industry-leading 8 year limited warranty.

Assembled with Quality - in the USA. Elite Series Fog Lamps are assembled in the USA using OEM-grade materials, including a precision aluminum casting, UV-coated outer lens, copper-core circuit board, and multi-die automotive emitters. After being assembled by Diode Dynamics in St. Louis, Missouri, they are robotically sealed with urethane epoxy for long-lasting protection against moisture, and packaged in form-fit foam for safe transportation. No expense has been spared, from materials to assembly, right here in America.

What are the advantages of the Elite over the SS3 sport in SAE fog? Or is the SS3 considered better since it’s more expensive?

Great question!

Elite Series Fog Lamps are right in line with our SS3 Sport regarding performance.

Measured Lumen Output:
ES 1850 lm vs SS3 1520 lm

Peak Intensity:
ES 10200 cd vs SS3 10600 cd

However, our Elite Series Fog Lamps utilize a custom-engineered patent-pending optic that delivers an extremely sharp cut-off, wide beam pattern, and unique BMW style color banding.

Here is a great video comparison from LightWerkz on YouTube:

So for the brightest set up we would still go with the SSE Max?

What is the comparison to the Stock LED Fogs?

You also stated that the SS3s are brighter, but I am assuming the ES was developed to look similar to the stock LED Fog? I like the ES look better than the SS3, but would like the output of the SS3 Max with the ES look.

I've requested comparison images and data from our media and engineering team for you!

However, we do have comparison images on file at the moment of the stock halogen fog lamps compared to our Elite Series fog lamps.





Our Elite Series Fog Lamps are right in line with our SS3 Sport regarding performance.

Measured Lumen Output:
ES 1850 lm vs SS3 1520 lm

Peak Intensity:
ES 10200 cd vs SS3 10600 cd

However, we don't have plans to offer a range of power levels for our Elite Series Fog Lamps. The SS3 Max is still going to be the highest road legal performance option offered by us.

Here at Diode Dynamics, we take pride in designing SAE-compliant fog lamps for legal on-road use!

If you've installed our Elite Series Fog Lamps or an SS3 Fog Light Kit, properly aiming your new lights is essential for optimal performance, respecting the vision of other drivers, and general road legality.
