    In also looking into this mod as the fogs let the front end down I was thinking of a led conversion bulb for the fogs (use them as day running lights)

    WHERE TO CUT - 1.jpg

    Hope you've got them sorted Chris,

    I've just ordered another set from HIDs-DIRECT as the passenger side ballast has finally given up the ghost today and refused to light up, so will be trying the "55W New Smart Canbus kit" 5K to see if there is any difference.

    Good news is I've got about 5 sets of spare bulbs to go with the damn things now though, should any of them fail
    Hopefully 2013 will be the start of good things to come lol

    Happy New Year to one and all

    Cant quite remember but I think I bent the metal bracket/rod forward (only just enough) on mine to make room for the bulb. Still shields the bulb sufficiently so as to stop all the glare and reflect the light
