Thanks!

Received mine today and installed in under twenty minutes (wish every mod was this easy)! They look amazing!! Thanks for the removal and installation since I never would have attempted this otherwise.

@bryan03tls and @Ryoh I'm glad the install went well for you guys. This was certainly a lot easier than swapping out the static turn bulbs!

How do they match the Xenons?

Thats a sick Macan you have! They do look like they match. Didn't the tag lights come LED?
Thanks! I'm thrilled with my Macan. The tag lights came halogen for MY2015, unless one specced for the Comfort Lighting Package. Replacement was easy via this thread: http://www.macanforum.com/forum/electronics/27329-simple-mod-convert-your-macan-s-license-plate-lights-halogen-led.html. That thread references the LED replacements from Suncoast, but you can find applicable versions on Amazon/Ebay for around $30. Cheers!

Easiest mod ever. I ordered the yellow films with it. The install was painless, but I did had to go back to adjust the height as I forgot to do so before snapping everything back in place.

Result looks awesome

Completed my swap out this morning. Just as easy as everyone has stated.

Can't wait for the sun to go down tonight to try them out!


Thanks MarkinMD and everyone else who has posted on this topic.

This is a really good mod that also worked perfectly for 2014 Cayenne and it is a must for the halogen Macan fog units because of the mismatch with Xenon. We did not have to do it for the Macan since it is a Turbo with SD and has the LEDs already.

Other areas where Porsche comes short with LEDs or matching light color are static corner on Xenons (replaced with color matching halogen) and most frustrating are door edges that are halogen on every Macan regardless of the LED package (had to replace with VW LEDs), and do not get me started on no lights at all in the trunk edge with Cayenne and Panamera having nice LED units there (that work in the Macan). Basically, Macan LED package is missing 6 LED edge units (4 door wired and 2 trunk not even wired) but a I am sure we all got charged the full LED package price.

Hi guys, can someone tell me where I still can buy these now days? I just got one broken fog lamp.
The original link posted by @MarkInMd is dead.....but I think this is the current link for the Morimoto LED fogs at that same website. Based on the description, it sounds like they now have the option of two different color temperature bulbs.....the original 5500K and a warmer (more yellow) 3000K temperature.....but it's not clear to me if they ship the units with both bulbs or if you have to select one or the other at the time you purchase them. May be worth a phone call. Hope this gets you on the right path.

As far as I know, nothing changed on the Macan for the 2018 model year, so they should still fit.
