Does anyone have any non standard fog lights that fit into the bezel my12?

because in these bezels you cannot attatch the fog lights with the normal 90 degree angle that you see in general fog lights so there is no way to attack to the bezel or bumper............ has anyone mastered this yet? i can get genuine for like 160 each but #### that and i want led ones not homo holden ones lol

Do you NEED Fog Lights? Are you considering installing and using so that you too can be and act like a 'real dickh...' as is the behaviour of many other motorists, without any consideration whatsoever for other road users. By the way, driving with both headlights and fog lights illuminated simultaneously (at the same time) is illegal. It is illegal to have more than two (2) headlights displayed (at the front) of a vehicle. Put simply, 4 lights (2 headlights and 2 fog lights) definitely 'a NO NO'. Fog Lights can only be used (without headlights) during periods of fog or other low visibility SUCH AS smoke, dust, rain. Fog Lights are NOT a substitute for driving light for headlights. As for 'smarties' out there who may feel a need to challenge the 'four headlight rule) YES you can have 'four headlights' operating simultaneously - i.e. 2 x headlights and 2 x high beam. HOWEVER, remember that it is also illegal to drive on high beam WITHIN a 'built-up' area. A 'built-up' area is generally that area as defined within town or city limits. Generally the only perfectly legal way is within rural area. Still unsure !!!! Recently in Adelaide, a Pizza delivery Driver was issued with an Infringement Notice for misusing high beam when he was intercepted by Police, at night) in a back street trying to find a place in which he could execute a 'U' turn. Fine was in excess of $300.00

The only value in this reply is "Do you really need them?" Fog lights are not headlights. You are permitted to install 2 additional pairs of headlights/driving lights. OEM seperated headlight/highbeam assembly is generally considered to be one unit. High beams/ driving lights can be used ANYWHERE as long as not within 200m of another oncoming or receding vehicle.

Fog lights can be used with headlights, but can ONLY be used in 'weather conditions causing reduced visibility' such as fog and rain. In fact, you MUST turn your headlights on in rain, but if you have fog lights, you MAY turn those on instead.
Fog lights do not provide additional light to see kangaroos when you are traveling at 100km/h. They show a low, wide light designed to pick up edge lines when it is REALLY foggy. If you are doing more than about 40km/h, you will not be able to avoid any animal that you see coming into your fog light beam. Fog lights CAN dazzle other drivers, particularly the elderly.

Agreed, many people driving with their fog lights on are dh's, but they have a use in the right circumstances.
