2016 lancer Need some help

Hey guys I'm new to this forum. I own a 2016 Mitsubishi lancer. I'm looking to upgrade the fog lights at the moment and some other things. There is an led fog light upgrade kit with a manufacturer part number MZ360482EX. Now this part number is for the whole kit with the housing and led bulb. I am having trouble finding a part number for just the led bulb itself so that I can see if I can purchase just the bulb and not the whole kit.

The reflector is designed to the point of origin of the light.

A normal light bulb and a LED bulb do NOT have the same point of origin (of the light).

Changing the bulb would render your fog lamp pretty much useless.

Thatīs why they are offered as a kit.

That's understandable, I know L.E.D.'s last longer than normal halogen bulbs... What if a L.E.D. Goes out? One has to purchase a whole kit as a result? If not then there has to be a part number. I get what you are saying but I want just the bulbs. Mostly for looks.

LED's also have a solid core blocking out a portion of the light in the reflector housing, and there are quite a few video where people have put in plug and play LED headlights and complain #1 is that the throw seems to be shorter.

Honestly if just doing it for looks, look into other halogens as even they have different color ratings. PIAA Xtreme White's are a bit whiter than most, or they have a purple tinted bulb that is still a halogen for example. Other brands have similar offereings. Like HID's really need to do it properly or not at all.

HID or different halogen bulb, what do you suggest?

HID's also need a different housing from the factory housing. Halogen's are the only thing that will work properly.
