Much as Ilike the idea of fitting the aftermarket DRL's in the Mk2.5 Focus
The one niggling thought in my mind is ...........How long will the LED's last?
I mean I dont fancy shelling out circa £90 [cost of the linked to item] if one decides to go "walkabout" say in eighteen months or maybe two years or even four years down the line.....having lived in Yorkshire for over fifty years I've aquired the odd Yorkshire trait
Now in the last nigh on five years of ownership of my previous Mk2 Focus, I can quite clearly recollect having to use my fog lights on two occasions. Once on the A30 in Cornwall, and the other on the A59 twixt Bolton Abbey and Harrogate. Total time of actual usage requirement, I would hazard a guess at being no longer collectively than a couple of hours tops.
Now to me that is a very under utilised lighting set up. And to be perfectly honest on my Mk 2 I wired a electromagnetic [hidden behind the front bumper] front parking aid set up, via the fog lamp switch. Reason being, when I previously fitted them on our S40 Volvo the wife often used to foget to switch the sensors off after using them, no matter how many times I told her after using... switch the bleeding things OFF...............
You married guy's will know where I'm coming from regards women and light switches, hot taps, and the like. You see women don't ever consider men have anything important to say that they would be remotely interested in, hence they stop listening ...........its in their genes
So when she wanted to use them in the Mk 2, if she left them on, sas soon as she opened the drivers side door, the "left lights on" alarm would sound.
Anyway as I'm about to fit the front parking aid in my newly accuired Mk 2.5 [that's what I like about that type of set up, you can take them with you] This will be the third vehicle served by that one purchase.
Anyway back on subject, I was toying with the idea of possibly swopping my current fog lamp bulbs, with some LED ones like these Because if these decided to go "walkabout" in eighteen months, the replacemet cost will be a dam sight easy for my wallet to swallow.
Not sure if it's a go'er, so I'm putting it up for discussion, good and bad lpoints lets get it out there.
