    I've tried mtec before. They look nice but their light output is awful.

    I want to keep the same effect but want them to be bright. Otherwise there is no point changing them.

    Philips Diamond Vision H8 5000k are a good match to the LED lights - very pleased with mine but incredibly hard to get hold of !

    I realise this is an older post but I was looking to change my foglight bulbs to the philips bulbs you mentioned-they do seem difficult to find(specifically for the Seat Leon as you also mentioned)I`m abit reluctant to buy the ones on ebay from China as I wonder if they`re genuine philips..:(

    Thanks for the info,I contacted an ebay seller based in Germany about the philips H8 diamond vision bulbs they have for sale-they can be checked online on the philips website to confirm they`re genuine .I do`nt really fancy led bulbs as I tried them on my previous car(Leon FR170) and had various canbus problems-I`ve always found philips bulbs to be excellent and they are OEM also...

    Hi Everyone,
    Does any one here knows what type of LED fog light bulbs, the facelift Leons have? I have seen the newer Leons with slimmer fog light case/slot where the bulb is on. I want to put some LED fog lights in my 2014 FR, I can´t make a decision to which brand to go, so figured that the OEM bulbs that go in the newer Leons would probably be the best option.
    Thanks,
    Sam

    I changed mine to H8 Cree led 45w which match the led headlights. With no issues.

    I bought them from Horizon LEDs. believe me you won't be disappointed as I have them on as cornering lights and it looks good.

    Hope this helps

    Here you go a picture of what the led fog lights look like in my avatar picture.

    Hi ADM,
    Thanks for your reply, could you send me a link of the ones you bought? Also in terms of real use, will these illuminate better than the OEM halogen ones? They certainly look much better!
    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    Any tips in how to best change the fog light from the left (passenger side)?, the washer deposit is in the way, is there a way to make it loose? I have the FR version, so I assume I cannot access from the front casing.
    Thanks!

    I know you say you have the FR version but I too have little or no room on the passenger side due to water bottle.

    So surely they must give you access from the front...

    Do you have any screw access holes?

    One is for alignment of the light the other holds on the trim.....

    Pull the trim off, remove the steel clip at 12 o' clock position and 3 screws then the light comes out.

    Forgive me if the FR is nothing like this, I just assumed you should have access from front if you can't get bulb out from behind......

    Unfortunately the FR version has to be done from the back. You will have to turn the wheel so it’s facing outwards or jack the car up and remove the wheel. Then remove the wheel arch plastic shroud, I think they are bolt head screws. Pry the plastic shroud back as much as you can and try to undo it with your hands. It is very difficult but persist and you will get there. I used a wooden block to wedge inbetween the plastic shroud so I could get my hand in.
    Hope this helps!

    If you have the larger bottle for headlight washers you can't even see the fog light!
