Did you actually want to use them as fog/driving lights, that come on with you're parkers? Or wire them up as cornering lamps the factory way? (which i reckon is gay)

i'm wiring them up as foglights with a seperate switch. I've already done all the wiring, just need the lights.

Excuse my ignorance, but how do they come on when you wire them up as cornering lamps the factory way?

The lights come with looms to plug straight into factory wiring that is already in the car. Then they only work each side, when the indicators come on. So unless you're hazards are on, then there will only ever be one light on, at a time, an only with indicators alight.

What is the point of that? Sounds ridiculous if you ask me.

It is stupid. But the reason is (info I got from b-series) is that they were originally released as fog lights, however were not allowed for some reason, so were recalled and re-wired as cornering lights.

the original driving lights didnt pass adr's.

when your lights are on and you indicate the light comes on to light your way up around the corner. they came out on NF lanes and have been on many different cars since
