Yes it will fit, but they are actually cornering lights not driving lights.

They fit and you can wire them up as driving lights if you want. I had mine wired up to turn on with the parkers with a seperate switch under the dash to turn them off if the boys in blue ever question it. Had them this way for 5 years..

Even when hooking the cornering lamps up to work like driving lights ... you still aren't going to get any forward light ... I followed an NL on the way to work and he turned off ... and when he indicated ... I could see the beam off to the side of the road.

So it's useless hooking them up as fog driving lights ... it's a direct beam on a 45 degree angle ... pretty useless really to use in a forward direction .... and I think they are only 21w globes ... not 55w like foglights are.

One of my mates was actually told that he could not mount driving lights in the two corner vents on the front bumper of his EF as it fed cool air to the battery and was actually illegal to mount lights there.

Not sure how true this may be........

On the EF/EL it was an option to have the cornering lights fitted from factory in those spaces ... so it couldn't have been illegal to mount them there.

There is no vent behind there though ... it goes into nothing.

Good luck finding 'em second hand! Try www.ozeparts.com and choose NL Fairlane on the model selection on the left of the page. They're $83 new genuine for one. :wink:
