    Default Foglight bulb choice.

    Looking to change the foglight bulbs but what to go for.
    I know they are H11's but do i go for some standard type white beam ones or just do hids. If i go the hid route i take it i will need a canbus kit but what about when it comes to mot time, i mean if the regs for cars with hids in the headlights would be the same for fogs.

    For the amount of time you use fog lights why bother with all the hassle of obtaining and fitting hid's and all the potential niggles you may get when you can just bang two bulbs in,i have them in my dipped beam as that's used all the time but everything else just has conventional bulbs fitted albeit the whitest ones I could find

    Have a look at Richards aka kman247 in quick photo album as he fitted hid's in his and has pictures. They look spot on and have them running as Drl's :-) I have 36 Led's in mine and imo they are bright enough and I like them.

    Don't worry about them with the mot. Fronts are not part of the test i was told yesterday at my mot. I only asked about them as i have disabled mine at the moment until i find the right ballasts that don't cause strobing. Hid bulbs are in but not connected hence why i disabled them due to errors popping up otherwise.
