Hi,
This is a great forum,loads of advice and Ideas to individualise your focus here, I have converted the rear fog lights of my focus mk2.5 to the clear lens a la Lennys guide, looks much better than the old red lens, but I bought an ordinary red bulb ( I think off a link on this site ) but the colour is showing a pinkish hue, probably wont pass the mot with this. I know Lenny has a link to the cree bulb on his guide for about £26.00, but I was trying to get something cheaper.I have seen this bulb on E BAY,( hope the link works, not very good with computers !! ) in case the link does not work, Cree 382/p21w/5w/Q5 led bulb for £12.99 + £ 0.99 pp, but will it work on my 08 focus??, can anyone advice me on this, if it will not work does anyone know of a bulb that will give a true red colour and work on the focus? or will I have to buy the one on Lennys link?. Thanks in advance Mike.

hi mate,
that link you have on the post, is the same cree bulb as the other link just cheaper, i must update the inital link to the cheaper one, i dont have a cree red fog bulb fitted yet myself but some others on the site do amd will be able to advise and post images. it will fit the focus no problem mate, and it has a rippled lens so as not to be too bright on people driving behind you.

hi lenny, thanks for the reply,posted here by mistake,dont know how to remove it, have now posted on the correct site, looking at the bulbs on your link, I think there is a slight difference in the numbers ( 1156 / Ba15s ) do you think the cheaper bulbs will work?, Mike
