good shout lenny, i can tell you've given this some thought lol... cant wait to see more pics as i like the sound of running the cable back with the fog light cable.
makes sense, just hope its not to hard to get too.
i was thinking the same with regards to the duplex exhaust pipe but not sure how that would affect my warranty? unless i went through ford to get it done (if thats possible) but i know that will cost a fortune lol
those cree bulbs look the part, but again cost a fair bit :(... i want to get a dremel!!

Have something to contribute?

+1 on the Maplins Dremel pree their an excellent piece of kit, i havent put mine down sice i bought it, great for eating pot noodle too lol fork attachment for the noodles ;)


According to the spec on the cree bulbs they emmit 55watts of light each so that is the same amount of light as your front fogs,
so if anyone has fog lights on their car and wants to see the power of 2 cree q5 bulbs switch on your fogs in the dark B)

Think the fog light may need to be a bit brighter, so looking into led/cree bulbs etc.. if you know of anything let me know.
