That Fitment: The Morimoto Matchbox 2.0 Bi-xenon Projector is the world’s smallest projector that has both low and high beam capabilities. With the threaded mounted shaft and extremely compact size, these go where no projector has gone before! Literally
Marvelous: Easily the smallest bi-xenon capable projector on the planet, it's a technical marvel something like this can be retrofitted into a fog light!
Performance highlights: With a pre-installed clear lens and their flat cutoff shields, the Morimoto Matchbox 2.0’s light output is on par with any other dedicated fog light projector that's this small; Plenty of foreground light and a bonus high beam function make them an excellent addition to any existing retrofit in the main headlights.
Installation Summary: Regardless of application, it really doesn't get much easier! Just remove the headlight lens, insert the threaded mounting shaft through the pre-existing hole in the back of the reflector, hand-tighten, check rotation, tighten, and re-seal headlights. Minimal cutting will probably be involved, but you'll find the results well worth it! Check out the installation procedure for the Morimoto bi-xenon projectors linked above.

These are excellent for small housings like fog lights, or wherever things are tight. Note though, some fog lights are still too small. I had to cut the bottoms right out of the housings for a friend's Corolla to get these to fit. Otherwise they are super easy to install.
As the other reviews mentioned, they don't have crazy output, but I don't think you would want any brighter for a fog. It's leagues above any stock fog light, especially with the clean cut-off line, and it's much better than the cheap crap available on other sites. The high beam function is just icing on the cake.
The only reason I don't give 5 stars, is because right out of the box the bulb didn't sit very well in one of the projectors, and the hotspot was nonexistent. After much time filing and monkeying around, I made it much better, but the quality control on these little guys doesn't seem to be as tight as on the bigger stuff. I also wish a foreground limiter was available for these guys. There's some pretty bright light on the ground right in front of the car that is a little distracting. Also be gentle with the screws on the bulb holders, so as not to strip them.
Overall, despite my small gripes, I very strongly recommend these. For their intended purpose, they are excellent. And I would definitely buy them again for friends or if I got a different vehicle.
For being small these are a definitely good protectors to retrofit onto your fog lights. I just wished they can withstand the 55watts system, other than that if it can project a little farther it would be a plus but non the less compared to reflectors, this is a definitely an upgrade. I use them on my fogs in my Acura TSX.
Were small and easy to fit in foglights. The light output is just OK compared to some of the bigger projectors on this site though - but I think thats fair given their super compact size.
