The one on the ground is a replica clear unit from china,
Can be bought for 8 pounds on taobao, I used to buy them for that price and sell em on ebay as non genuine fog units for 15
You will notice if you take a picture of them at night,
The red strip doesn't reflect as good as the original unit from ford.

was the first thing i noticed when i got my none genuine unit werent it mate

 

you can see it in daylight if you take a photo of the unit in daylight with the flash turned on your camera

 

the genuine units reflector will appear illuminated but the none genuine wont

 

 

put photos of my findings on the guide. i wasnt really that fussed at the time though as it saved about 15quid n i was just gonna butcher a big hole in the back of it anyway lool

Mine was an original from Allen Ford via eBay.

Even came with a red bulb which was rubbish and more pink tbh.

Replaced sharpish with a red Cree.

That's the fellers.

That part direct from a Ford dealer is about £35 + Vat.
