Hi , I`m just in the process of buying a Cree reversing light bulb but I was wondering if it would be ok to replace the rear fog light with the same type or would it become too bright ? I have a late mk2 estate with the red lens.

Many thanks.

It will not be too bright.
A better option though is to fit the European clear lens and a red Cree bulb.
It looks very smart and evens up the back end look too.

Was just about to say the same as Clive.

I've done this also. Clear LHD unit and a red cree fog bulb. Looks so much better.

I'm a good example of that. Just look at my !Removed! thread lol. Car was completely stock when I bought it and I intended on keeping it that way... Then I discovered the forum <_<
