    I guess that as you're thinking of fitting HID's to them that you're after the look rather than functionality on foggy conditions.

    I fitted LED's with resistors to mine and then set them to be used as DRL's using VCDS. They looked good and bright as DRL's, but don't put any usable light on the road. They wouldn't be any use in fog either, but I never actually needed them as fog lights.

    Here's the thread, but it might not be what you're looking to achieve though:

    Retro'd: Black S-Line badges | Private Plate | Come home lights activated | Fogs as corning lights activated | Hill hold assist activated | TPMS (via VCDS) activated | 3.5" s/s tailpipe | LED interior lighting.
