Nighteye do a good range of pure white LED fog lights, as do Autobeam. I favour nighteye as they have a good reputation. If you go down the LED route then most will have a heat sink on the back so you may require larger rubber boots to cover the back of the bulb, you can get them off eBay for about £5.

bear in mind that pure white fog lights will be useless in fog.

In case you want LED bulbs you can also search for H8 bulbs. H11 and H8 bulbs have exactly the same socket/fitment. The only difference is that H11 is 55 Watts and H8 is 35 Watts. H8 LED bulbs however are a bit more common than H11 LED bulbs.

In my opinion the best looking way to install DRL onto a Focus MK2 is by installing combined fog/DRL lights. These are available from Osram and many Chinese manufacturers on Ebay/Aliexpress.

I don't think the plugs are 'exactly' the same but they will fit, I didn't know the wattage was different though

 

One of the metal tabs is much wider on the h11 and will need to be filed with a Dremmel, you can also remove the red ring gasket on the base to allow it to sit better.

 

I'd definitely go with the H11 now that I know that they are a better wattage

Yeh I removed the chrome rings and glued these powerful rings in place with a Drl Controller.

Cheers, Mine is the pre-facelift and the fog trim is not a complete circle so its not an option. Thanks for your reply👍

Aw right if it's the type like below then if it was me I would remove the covers and mount led strips to the fat part at the top and either tuck the wire or make a small hole for the wire to go into so it can be routed to a controller. The controller requires a small splice into the headlight wires to dim when on or if you want it to dim when sidelights go on then it's your preference.

I installed DRLs on mine... here they are.

And installed separate switches for 'halo' and centre LED (They come on automatically with ignition, but can be switched off selectively)

Okey dokey, the first thing you'll need is a LHS & RHS foglight holder, I picked up both for a tenner off a breaker. You may just drill a 3" hole in the original blanking plate, but, I think personally they'd look rubbish!

This is the seller of the switches...

This is the seller of the lights...

Best of luck, and post some photos when all done 😀

Cheers Stephen, I have the trim covers and fogs already fitted (my profile pic shows them after I painted them). Thanks again for your help, much appreciated.
