cool that will do me so much red thanks for the pics they greatlooks like I will go with the whites as well

No prob,

Here's a link to the latest genuine cree reverse bulbs three times brighter than cree Q5

I must put up a video aswell,

I fitted a relay to the rear red fog light,

If the red fog is switched on,

And i put car in reverse,

The red bulb automatically switch's off

While reverse is active,

So red and white never shine together :)

do you have a link for the relay you used

I purchased mine from a company called GenLabs, standard auto off drl relay

Sadly they have gone out of business, but any drl auto off relay will do,

See link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DRL-Daytime-Running-Light-Relay-Harness-Auto-Car-Control-On-Off-Switch-/140866439036?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item20cc4b477c

Cut feed leading to fog light,

Connect feed input to relay,

Attach ends feeding to fog bulb as drl outputs,

Splice sensor feed to reverse positive,

Job done,

When the relay feels power in the sensor feed it stops power flowing through itself,

Yeah its more than sufficient mate,

The amps flowing through the cable wont increase by using bigger cable,

It will be just the same,
