    GSI Bumper fog light diameter?

    Hey Guys,

    Im thinking of getting a GSI bumper soon, but I dont fancy paying out loads of money to buy the standard foglights. Id prefer to get some much cheaper ones and fit them into the holes with possibly a little modification.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Have just measured the aperture through the packaging, and its roughly 82mm in diameter from the front, its slightly smaller from the back, about 72mm.

    Nope, the measurement you need is 75mm.

    I hadsome angel eye fogs in mine until one broke, but you can't buy them any more so I had to fork out for the Vxl ones.

    You could fit some bigger ones (upto 85mm) and fit them behind the grille so 5mm is covered each side.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I take it's a 75mm diameter light unit then so it sits recessed from the front and fitted from the front.

    Angel eye fog lights are available from here btw...unless they are mis-advertising.....

    I fitted some Ring 0377 ones to mine (Angel eye ones) that are slightly too big but look fine when fitted:
