does anyone think LEDs would be better in the fog?  

interesting to see the 3 different light colours for the LED headlights, main beam, and fog lights all together.

Would these be ok for fog light bulb replacement?

I have fitted these to low beam on my 2017 S Cross and they work great. Originals were rather yellow.
Bought them for the fog lights but fitting them ended up in the too hard basket for now.
With bonnet open can hear the fans spinning. While the bulbs may last for yonks I do wonder about lifespan of the fans. Time will tell.

High beam is separate like Vitara but reflector is smaller & rectangular. (H7, not HB3) Some Philips x-treme vision halogens on order.
The 1.4T version in NZ has combined high & low like what you got in pommie land.

Philips x-treme vision T10 360 6000k LED for side lights. We call them park lights down under. They are very bright & white

I noticed the house across road was lit up much more (leaving driveway) on low beam than it was with original halogen bulbs.
Occasional flash from on coming motorists to dip my lights?
So parked car against a wall to compare LED spread with halogen.
With light source of LED not being in the centre like halogen, plenty of light was escaping where it should not on low beam.
Did not think it would be an issue with the projector low beam lights.
Now have Philips X-treme vision +100% halogen fitted to both low & high beam.
Same correct spread as original, just a bit brighter = all good.

I find the LED dipped beams so good I find it difficult to become too exited about the admittedly inferior main beam, as an easy improvement would some form of super duper halogen improve matters for a 15 squid or so outlay, maintaining focus & no issues with light scatter etc.

What do folks think of these:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUXITO-CANBUS-Error-Free-9005-HB3-LED-Headlight-Bulb-High-Beam-6500K-16000LM/123991533704?hash=item1cde78a888:g:zKYAAOSwCOhd32dt
for main beam?
They claim to imitate the beam pattern of halogen bulbs, so should alleviate the scatter others complain of.
I know we don’t need the canbus feature, but the price is good.

I did initially fit this type of LED bulb (as no others were available at the time) but found the fan type was both noisy and did fail (cooling fan seized) after a time so now fit bulbs such as these with a heat sink, no noise and no fan seizure...

Karl,
Received the LED HB3s from that supplier and they work great. They have a means of adjustment in order to optimise the beam (alledgedly) We shall see!
One point: The LED fitting has the small detent for latching the connector, however if they are connected in the "correct"  orientation,ie with the detent engaged, then the LEDs do not light!!Neutral  Reversing the connector however, cures the problem. Go figure Shocked

Complain to the seller, I have had this before and it is a manufacturing mistake,
LED's are polarity sensitive
The seller usually refunds in full and you get to keep the item Wink

Does anyone know if the fog light housings are the same on Vitara as any other car?
Thinking i might want yellow led lights, and i find for many other cars but not Vitara, however allmost everything on the pics looks like the same houses.
The pics of the clear lights is from a Vitara for comparison.

Suzuki foglights on later models are usually Valeo part# 088358 and fit many manufacturers

Thanks Karl!
I will see if i can get hold of a set for a resonable price, or else i might just do a led conversion on the ones i have.
