Looks like the LED ring is in the fog lamp behind the fog lens - correct ?

Guessing photo deceives and the ring is wired to sidelights so on independent to the fogs - hence day driving lights Very Happy

CG gives USDA bit more cus this is an interesting development fella .......

lights are behind the glass as the ring just pushes in from the back, I've held it in place with a couple of blobs of hot melt adhesive.

Only the ring is switched on in the photo, it looks good, just my photos are cr*p, I have not wire these into the side light yet,but thats the plan.

The price was per pair (£4.50 each) their are cheaper, the first one I got where £3.50 each, but when they arrived they turn out to be blue LED, looked like a cop car Rolling with laughter


this shows the blobs of hot melt glue.


this show the ring in position better

This pic is a bit better, this was the blue LEDs which where too blue, I have now swapped to the white LED's above. it does show the ring.
