Hi Mate,

Im looking to fit front fogs, May I ask where you got all the parts from to do so? Oh and by the way if your bumpers are like mine they will deffo need to be cut out! Im thinking an air saw with a nice little narrow blade to follow the curves well!

Im thinking air saw with a nice slim blade. Ive fitted a MK3 Golf headlamp switch, got the lights from Brickwerks with the frames, and the relay and the wiring o/e was from ebay at 29 all in. He even sent instructions on how to wire them in to the fuse box

i used a dremel with a cutting disk to cut a rough hole (not what you want... ;)), then a couple of files to get the edges clean. then just fit the cage, melt the tabs with a soldering iron and screw the lights on.
