Low cost compliant Fog lights

Postby wjw » Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:13 am

What would you buy?

They need to be true fog lights, not the Chinese non compliant versions.

LED and HID are loadsa money $700+ for compliant ones

Hella 500 series Halogen Fogs.... ??? with 100W upgrade? can get matching spotties then too

Always hella.
find an older catalogue to get the old comet style and they'll be cheaper.
also most place should do 45% off retail for ya.

reasonable price. but add freight to that.

retail those are about $88 per lamp in nz. You'll be able to get trade from TWL or something no doubt.

:-) yea I thought about that, was remembering the big spots I used to have that were great at stopping air getting through the radiator

Couldn’t get any reasonable second hand or new ones price or condition wise, ended up buying a set of 4 from amazon for $200, 2 spots, 2 fogs, covers & looms.
