    A Marmite issue for some Funsters, I know, BUT, I've fitted these (see pic).
    They fit into the 'step up' apperture on the front bumper quite nicely.

    After seeing a post from @Lynne Steele. I bought a kit from Ledcom (there are others :D).

    I'm no auto-electrician, but the job was straight forward. The destructions were easy to follow as they had accompanying photos of the engine bay and wiring points etc.

    Biggest bugbear was nothing to do with wiring or fitting the unit, it was removing a piece of trim under the nearside headlamp and removing the cover from the fuse box. The cover was held on with two shake-proof nuts which took an age to undo. (I thought it would be better just to have sturdy plastic clips, rather that over- engineering it?)

    Quite pleased with the outcome and fitting doesn't interfere with the CanBus system.

    PS. The lights go off when dipped beam headlamps are switched on. In the pic, the N/S headlamp has sun on it; it's not on!!

    Bet you get in loads of bother from the police with that illegal number plate.

    If your camera cant read it then what chance will NPR cameras have.

    :LOL:

    Used the same company for mine, maybe worth putting some sikaflex around cable entry to rear of DRL to ensure no ingress of water
    Personally felt possibility of water getting into rear of fitting where the cables enter(y)
