Red Bulbs

Hi I'm looking at doing the twin reverse light mod, but want to know where and what type of bulb people have used for the fog light?

Many thanks

Ah dual reverse, a really nice mod to have tbh.

The bulbs most commonly used are Cree LED ones. Red for the fog light, and white for the reverse.

Here are links to some on eBay. Word of caution, avoid any cree LED's from sellers in China.

A mod I keep planning to give a shot but never get around to.

Obviously a new left hand drive clear lens is needed to replace the standard red rear fog unit.

At least that leaves you with the old unit to chop the bulb sleeve out of.

Remember that the bumper moulding behind the light also needs cutting to allow the second bulb holder to fit or the light won't fit back.

If anyone wants a 5w white Cree bulb I'll happily send it for a couple of pounds to cover postage and packing.

Cheers gents, they look like good bulbs have you used them? Just wanted to make sure they have both fitting pins at the same height

That's the type of bulb I currently have in my clear fog light lens.

They show a red metal body but they are actually usually a silver body.

Conversely a white Cree bulb has a red body (a bit backwards I know :)).

Yup cree for both my reverse lights, and one red for the fog.
