    easy tiger , you might not have to buy any .
    i have a pre facelift gsi with the factory round fogs and my mate has a program he got off ebay where you can basicly check every single system for faults etc etc , it also lets you turn the drl system on. there were 3 different options , just select it and they come on and i chose the one i like which was to have the fog lights on but a bit dimmer than when actually on as fogs . it looks awsome and saves fitting hideous ones on the bumper somewhere .
    will get a pic up in the morning

    I have the fogs activated as DRL's on my motor, it's not an option on the facelift / full can models but on a preface half can it's fine. Not as bright as the new DRL LED's but an alternative to consider anyway and a no cost option if your car fits the category and you can find someone local with a programmer

    Wonder if the preface fog DRL setting would work with HIDs?

    well i have the HIDs (factory) i think one of the options was sidelights, the other may have been the main headlights cant remember . but then you could just upgrade the fog bulbs maybe to xenon style ones or something .

    No fella, the only option on the programmer is to set your dipped beam as either bulbs, or HID's, there isn't an option for fogs / high beam etc. Basically only an ability to enable the factory fitted options.

    I think one or two have fitted HID's to their fog lights. Also my half can pre facelift's fogs never came on when I selected any of the options. I was lumbered with dips only or nothing. That may have been due to it being a late half can though.

    Sorry, didn't mean like that, you can obviously fit the cancellers etc if fit HID H3's... I meant wonder if HIDs would work with the dimmed DRL setting on the fogs?
