Jase has done it to his.
Not sure how he wired it up ..... I think he has a switch to run them as fog lights ... and has also wired them up as cornering lights as well (which is their actual purpose).

Mght have to ask Ch0c0 about that one.

Your talking about the cornering lights right?
They are not very bright only 22watts I believe.

Put bigger globers in there.

Don't corner lights have a large beam spread?
Not really ideal for fog lights unless the spread is downwards only.
Even worse if used as driving lights were you want a tighter beam of light.

Consider why you want them and how you will use them (driving fog lights is a real contradiction in terms).
Then get the right light assembly and glob to do the job.


Hopefully you aim is not to piss every one off like so many comformadoor drivers :D

Cheers.

Cheers.

The easiest way to deal with people leaving the aux driving lights on.
660 watts of high beamed alien abduction type wrath of the devil (wish I had another 6 watts for 666) that'll fixem light.
