    You have more chance of the car having the right ECU's on original half canbus pre-facelift cars.

    Still if i retro fitted them just for the appearance I would want them to work. I retro fitted them to my vec C and just did my own wiring IIRC - just ran a relay to the switch. I took the feed for the relay from the side light circuit and everythin worked fine. It was a 52 plate if that helps regarding Canbus / part Canbus - im not sure what it was. I did wire up a second rear fog on both the Vectra and my 07 Astra and that caused no canbus issues on either car.

    Cant you just install your own direct feed from the battery, and an aftermarket switch/fuses... but use the standard fogs. surely that wont cause problems?

    Take the back off the switches... i'm sure you may be able to work out which to solder your own wiring kit to, be worth a go...
