    GSi foglamp blues

    As most of you now know, I have a GSi front bumper fitted to my 2000 reg SXi, I have been in a complet dilemma about foglamps have been flying over the message boards finding out different things about alternative fogs and genuine GSi fogs, the problem was I just didnt want to pay vauxhalls prices!, I even tried LMF but their prices were the same but here's an update on the situation, I went to Vauxhall today and asked the price for a pair of GSi foglamps, the bloke done a little tappin' on his computer and said 71.00 + VAT, I asked "Is that the price for just one foglamp", he said "no, that is the price for the pair of foglamps and the fitting kit" I asked again just to be certain, now this guy is gonna call me in a couple of days to tell me if the goods have arrived, I am more or less certain that the price above is for a foglamp kit, i.e 1 fog lamp, now, because this bloke has told me that what I have paid for is a pair of foglamps should I argue the case and try and get two out of it if only one arrives? if so what would be my best plan of attack? alos has this happend to anyone else?

    Not a direct fit mate, Rusty has kindly sent me a how to if I wanted to fit them though, thing is though I dont think those angel eyes serve much of a purpose compared to REAL foglamps, I prefer function over feature

    lol - they are fog lights too... far brighter than standard fogs at that.

    The exact same thing happened to me Kev! The part number refers to a fog lamp kit and so the dealer assumed it was a pair. When they relised the mistake they ordered me another one for free!

    Well I have a result, not quite as good as lightnings but I went to pick the lamps up today and obviously the bloke told me that only one had came in, I played on it saying I was gutted and that was the only thing I needed to finish the front end of my car off and that it wasnt right because the number refers to a kit, he went out the back, came back to the desk and started tapping on his calculator and then on his computer then he said, because the fault is at our end I'll discount the pair for you, instead of paying 166.84 you can pay 117.00 a saving of 49.84
