LF ADVICE: All-Weather LED switchback fog lights (6000K White/3000K Yellow)

I want to bounce some ideas off you guys. On RS there's a post for LED Switchback Fog lights (made in HK). It's $200 CAD, do you guys think it's worth my money? Effectively, I can see that the 6000K white/ 3000K yellow benefits.

Visibility during dry conditions -> toggle fog on -> White light
Visibility during wet/foggy conditions -> toggle fog on-> toggle off -> toggle on -> Yellow light

I can see how this can be a hassle, as it resets at every ignition off, to white light. What do you guys think?

There's the aesthetics perks and the versatility perks

imo, fog lights do help light up surrounding areas and floods the width. The only thing I would ask is if the fogs themselves are designed for the bulb in mind. If the light inside the housing is not reflecting correctly it would throw less light on the ground making them not as effective.

personally I don't think an LED like this is worth $200, there's no lumen output so it's hard to say exactly how bright they would be.

In some of the photos, you can see quite a bit of glare as well. This could cause newer problems with on coming traffic etc.
