    Cheers Rick, much appreciated...

    Fitted the bumper no probs (30min job)and got the wires hooked up by a mate. They connect straight onto the fog lights already integrated into the headlight, so no need for a new switch. They come on with the existing foglights; in effect I now have four foglights...

    looks really good mate. Possibly look at a photo shopped version of your car color coded, keep the splitter as it is, but i like it.

    Maybe if it's Ming. That road is one my favorite's, often head down to the M4 that way.

    Yeah...no speedcamera's except that one opposite the car park. I tend to work on the car their as opposed to at my house, as the neighbours curtain's start to twitch if I work on the car in the driveway.. An S3 spolier is next!

    What i should have done was snapped some pics in progress, but for those who are asking here is some help for fitting the splitter: Most has been covered by Animal already

    Lay the splitter on a table, align the two centre probes, with the rest of the splitter and hacksaw off (about one inch), then, just screw about 14 to 16 holes in the splitter with 13 mmm self taper screws (once you get the splitter you will see where to screw them in)

    Raise the car slightly (i put four bricks down)

    Then, all you need to do is align the splitter up at the front and then masking tape it in place. Screw the first two holes in place and work your way around the front of the bumper (about one inch in) screwing the 13mm screws in place. Then you will see that you need to cut about 3 inches off each end and taper the ends down like a wedge and then screw it in securely.

    Job done, If you live anywhere near Reading I can help you. But honestly easy as..

    no problem fitting them, especially if you have the fogs integrated in the headlights as I do...

    The integrated fog lights are connected to the headlights, and operate on the same bulb as the high beam. If you have them, they are operated by pulling out the headlight switch once, and twice for the rear fog lights. (a green light should show, then an orange one. I essentially have 4 fog lights now...

    Well i have the switch, But i'm not too sure how they would work, are they just a case of pull the switch and they work then? Or is there a seperate wire? as i've made a custom loom to fit the lights, there's only 4 wires in the new lights though..

    I guess i'll find out soon enough!

    Yeah but i can't see how the existing ones work lol..
    Through main Beam?
    Surely that'd just **** things up in the fog? lol..

    Not sure if they work on mine, and there's no Wire, so do you wire the fogs up to the main beam effectively?

    I don't get it! lol

    check to see if you have fogs...(i assume you don't), but don't connect to the high beam as it will only work on high beam (obvious enough). Just get a seperate fog light switch and wire the fogs into that?

    I have a seperate wire and fuse etc
