Replacement/Alternative front fogs

One of my fog light lenses is cracked, I have sourced a replacement lens but it got me thinking, What else could i replace these with? DRLs/Better Fogs?

Can anyone recommend me a product?

Here's the car in question.



Thanks in advance

Chris

theres quite a few of those DRL ring lights that you can retrofit into the housing. Personally wouldn't go the route cos my car already has DRLs.

You could also look at the colour changing LED headlights if you fancy a bit of Rice with your Skoob.

I personally would opt for some very bright, not particularly road legal LED headlights. Cos if youre using Fogs for their intended purpose, you probably are in VERY poor visibility conditions. NB Front Fogs are intended for visibility of only a few meters!

If its the units i think they are then you're going to have to do a fair bit of modding to fit anything non model specific - the factory units have a load of plastic moulding around them for mounting. May be aftermarket items thats are a straight swap but mounting a circular unit into the bracketry might prove a task and a half


This guy in the US did some mods to his US market units - the thread suggests the actual light units pull or prize away from the mounting brackets so you might have a few more options than i originally thought

Thank you percymon! Some useful info there. I have bought a replacement fog from eBay but didn’t realise at the time that the one I bought has this shroud. Looks like I will be breaking into it to remove it! My car is a Jdm so no shrouds in the fog already.
If nothing else I now have a spare unit to play about with.

I put chameleon headlight film over mine. As I never use my fog lights ever, they switch on when I unlock the car - and seeing as I like lime green the fact they light up lime green is a bonus! Also protects the lense from chips.

Just a thought
