OLM's MOAB line of bulbs are designed to truly be the Mother of All Bulbs. Their compact design with passive cooling allows for easy installation in the tightest locations. This bulb is the first in OLM's line that gives the customer complete control of the output. Included are a variety of filters which will allow you to select the desired output.
Most vehicles still use standard halogen bulbs for fog light bulbs. These produce a lot of heat, draw a higher amount of current, and produce a dull orange light. The lifespan of these bulbs are also shorter than HIDs and LEDs. The MOAB will give you brilliant light with much more lumens per watt.
NOTE: If your WRX / STI was made for the Australian market, we cannot recommend this bulb. The design of the fog light housing for this market is different. The housing contains an additional P13W bulb which may interfere with this one.
2013-2017 Crosstrek owners WITH steering response fog lights (SRF) can use this bulb. However, for Crosstrek owners WITHOUT these, you can purchase our lamp assemblies which will modify your light to an H11 socket (ie Glass replacement fog light housings).
For the longest time, LED solutions were not able to produce enough life to be a safe alternative to halogen bulbs or HIDs. This is not the case anymore with chips such as the CREE XHP50 and CREE XM-L2.
Despite the changes in design vs stock, the bulb is still plug and play. The integrated LED driver does not have to be mounted for proper installation or a clean install.
Installation is as simple as installing a normal OEM bulb.
NOTE: For vehicles built specifically for the Australian market, we cannot recommend this bulb. The design of the fog light housing for this market is different. The housing contains an additional P13W bulb which may interfere with this one.

SAY NO TO HIDs
HIDs are great for certain applications. A small, thin plastic housing is NOT one of them.
This controlled testing shows the results of a 35w HID kit mounted inside the stock 2015 WRX / STI fog light housing.
In the picture below, you can see the extent of the damage on the inside of the casing.
For this application, the OLM MOAB Multicolor LED fog light bulb is a great solution. It also results in much less glare than an HID kit.
CREE XHP50 - MOAB
Powered by Cree’s groundbreaking SC5 Technology™ Platform, the XLamp XHP50 LED is a member of Cree’s Extreme High Power (XHP) class of LEDs that redefines lumen density and reliability to radically reduce system costs by up to 40 percent. At its maximum current, the XHP50 LED delivers twice the light output of the industry’s brightest single-die LED, the XLamp XM-L2 LED, at a similar lumens per watt and without increasing the package footprint. The XHP50 LED also achieves longer lifetime at higher operating temperatures. The overall result is significantly lower thermal, mechanical and optical costs at the system level.
This improved resistance to heat works well with the demands of automotive applications.
Approximate output is 3000 lumens per pair.
CREE LM-2 - MOAB Lite
Highest-Performing, Commercially Available, Single-Die LED
Delivering breakthrough lumen output and efficacy in the XM package, the XLamp XM-L2 LED is the highest-performing, commercially available, single-die LED. Built on the SC³ Technology Platform, the XLamp XM-L2 LED delivers up to 20% more lumens and lumens-per-watt and double the lumens-per-dollar of the original XM-L. The XM-L2 LED offers the unique combination of high efficacy and high lumen output at high drive currents, delivering an unprecedented 1198 lumens at 116 lumens-per-watt efficacy at 3 A, 25°C.
Approximate output is 2500 lumens per pair.
When replacing lights on your vehicle with aftermarket products, current draw should always be a concern. The HP LED bulbs have a low current draw for the amount of light they output. At 14V, the current draw is only 1.4-1.5 amps. (*Voltage is typically higher than 12.5V when the alternator is running)
