Hi, (sorry posted this on guides forum as well, dont know how to remove it )
This is a great forum,loads of advice and Ideas to individualise your focus here, I have converted the rearfog 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.

Does it have the Ford logo on it?

Might it be a non OEM part?

There should be a Ford logo and some numbers somewhere on the light, either on the back of the unit or on the front of the clear part.

it isnt a genuine ford unit. hence the price

 

i got my prefacelift none genuine unit from the same seller

 

cant say that its darker than the original though. looks just right to me

got my fog bulb from here i think

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4cfe5713d8

 

 

oh and to the op saying his original red fog bulb not passing the mot, correct me if i'm wrong but it cant fail the mot as the fog lights cant be tested as part of the mot?

 

fog lights are optional and therefor not mandatory and wont be looked at during mot

 

same reason how cree fog lights are technically illegal but you'll sail through the mot with em fitted as they cant be tested

Rear fog lights are mandatory so would be part of the Mot, just the front ones aren't tested.
