    Default Phesant + 40mph = new fog light bulb required

    I hit a pheasant over the weekend.

    along with cracking my bumper, the fog light bulb has blown (or at least it doesn't work anymore) and the dash warning's on. It might be that the impact has loosened a wire but if I'm going to the effort of rolling around under the car I may as well be prepared with new bulbs just in case. I've got HIDs fitted to the headlights so am looking for something that lends itself well to that & I've seen these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...633#vi-content but dont want to waste money on bulbs that will either throw up errors or will die within a week.

    Any thoughts on the above or any recommendations for some good quality white(ish) fog light bulbs?

    Anyone? Surely someone must have replaced their fog light bulbs or have an opinion on which ones to go for?..

    Well a "rally driving" friend of mine recommended I get a set of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1705799990...84.m1438.l2649
    But at that price I am waiting for a fellow forum member to let me have his thoughts once he has fitted them (in the process of now if you see my other thread lol)
    Cheers

    PS - I forgot to ask if you enjoyed the pheasant dinner even moreso for the damage it caused ?

    tbh, I don't use them that much as I don't do much driving in the dark but living in the middle of the wolds we do get some really intense fog so when it closes in it's better to have them than not.
