    Anyone have the factory long range driving lights attached? I have a couple of questions…

    I have the casings/covers, sealed with silicone, and the brackets attached. The lamps are gone, holes in the bumper, and the connectors are visible. I have a second fog light button next to the cruise and parking sensors… I am assuming this button is for the driving lights?

    If I get some new lamps, it should be just to plug them in… anyone that has them know if I am right in my assumptions and additionally, are there known problems with these lamps?

    I have a new in box set, which I converted to LED, but then never fitted.
    I've been meaning to put them on Ebay for ages, but haven't got round to it yet. :oops:

    I wasn't keen on the cutting either, so didn't do it. The LED conversion means the alloy bumper armature needs a 40mm hole drilling in it too, to accommodate the fan on the back LED. Obviously ordinary bulbs could be used, which is how I'll probably sell them.
    I am keep on moving them on, but haven't worked out the particulars yet. It's the full kit, with wiring, switches and everything else needed.

    I took my pair of LR driving lamps off and replaced it with a 22" LED bar. It fitted neatly to the nudge bar and I used the existing wiring - works well with a great light spread but not much increase in range. As mine's a '98 model the switch is down below the mirror adjustor. Can't think of any problems, just make sure what you fit is legal...
