I am after reading a few treads here on the above mentioned. But could you recommend any particular brand that wont cause any fault codes, If I can get away without adding in resistors in parallel.

Looking at the Philips made ones. Any thoughts? A Link would be great.

Very easy. 5-10 mins per side. Steering on full lock to improve access, 2 torx head screws on each wheel arch liner, gently pull back the liner and the connectors/bulbs are right there. Connector off, twist the bulb housing anti 90 degrees to remove, and then reverse to fit the new ones provided by @t8ups. It would help if you have a small torch or are using your mobile flash light to help see whats what behind the arch liner.

You can also fit them from the front.
By removing the fog light plastic lens trim covers. Just put the top end of a Allen key in the hole in the trim cover and grip the other end with a pair long nose pliers and pull firmly towards you.

You then get access to the fog light bulbs which just pull out and replace them with the new ones.

I then gave them a good clean while out but this is up to you.

The trim covers just need then to be lined up and clicked back into place.

Nice one for cleaning the fogs @A4A4

Did you use either pieces of the supplied film and if so how? Or did you leave them 'naked'!
No film just as is look great with welcoming lights and match headlights colour

I did find the wires to be a tad long so cable tied them up so no rattles.
3 torx bolts job done in 15 - 20 mins did have to turn wheel opposite lock to get 3rd torx bolt further in just make getting hand in Easier but very simple job.

Are the LED versions more yellow than the DRLs? The colour looks a little different in the photos.

I bought the none LED and whilst they match the main beam very well, ideally I want them to match the DLRs as these come on with the fogs when the car is unlocked - which is where I see them the most.

Just put an order in this afternoon... Looking forward to swap my existing ones, which look and work great but the fans squeak constantly (sounds more like pig at the slaughter house actually) so time for them to go...

I have to admit this was one of the things I found annoying seeing the DRL's and fog lights being so different when I unlock the car...so I've ordered a set. Looking forward to putting them on.
