Swapping the fog light bulb is fairly easy and straight forward. I took some pics of my installation to provide a guide for others.

Tool needed:
T25 torx screwdriver
Gloves (recommended)

Lifting the front end makes this install easier, but is not necessary.

The FoRS foglight...very illuminating.

Slip your hand behind the plastic cover. The spot by the brake duct intake grill is optimal.

Gently pull away from the front, working your hand around the trim to separate it from the bumper skin.

This is the only time you'll get your wrenching on. Remove this torx bolt.

There are two retaining tabs which need to be pressed inward. The foglight can then be pulled straight out.

Locate the plug at the base of the bulb. Press on the retaining clip, and gently wiggle the plug free.

The U shaped portion is what you will press down in the step above.

Your foglight is now completely free. Twist the bulb to remove. Replace with your choice of aftermarket or OEM bulb.

Re-installation is the reverse: plug the bulb in, slide the foglight back in to place (ensure the retaining tabs click in), return the bolt to the proper place, insert the foglight trim in to the bumper skin.

Now go tear up the asphalt!

It's a great upgrade.

Did it a couple of days ago.

Really thinking of going with yellow. Might buy another set so I can swap in and out.

Did you or anyone else install LED replacement bulbs?

If yes, where did you get them? Kelvin level?

So to understand this correctly. H8 is the oem size but H11 LED bulbs fit as well?

Wow, so I went with the Philips LEDs and the look is much improved. The 6K range is a tad higher than the headlights but much more in line than before...What an easy mod....I've done a lot of these on different cars and never, ever has it been this easy to do....Kudos to the engineer who designed these! Lol

I also bought another set with the yellow film. As easy as this is to do I'll definitely try both. The yellow fogs definitely help in bad weather...

About to pull the trigger on these because 1) I can't decide between white and yellow, and 2) I like toys that I can play with.

But, since these things toggle color based on turning the lamps on and off, does this mean that they will swap colors any time the automatic lights come on? Cause, I kinda feel like that might get annoying, especially at dawn/dusk when the light sensors seem to have a problem making up their mind.

But for $30 (with a 1 year warranty) and the choice to pick between colors as the mood or situation dictates, it seems like a pretty good option. Just wondered if you noticed the color change with the auto lights.

That's perfect, thanks! Exactly what I was hoping for. How are they holding up? Sounds like they fit securely, but wanted to see from someone with an RS.

Just ordered a pair, happy to get rid of the gross halogens that are OEM.

Pay attention on securing the bezels back on after doing this. If not its going to be an expensive lesson learned if your even able to get the replacement for part for it. Just saying

Just an update/FYI for the bi-color CAR ROVER lamps.

The Auto-light feature WILL toggle the color swap on the fogs. I left the house this morning with white fogs, sun came up on the way to work, went into a tunnel, and yellow fogs came on.

Not a huge issue, just wanted to let folks know what to expect.
