Late type Fog Light lenses

Recommended Posts

Seen this company in the states called VX Tuning and they do replacement glass Fog light lenses for the late type bumpers.

$175 dollars a pair.

 

Anyone used them or alternatives?

To be honest the only replacement/s I purchased are from SPRINTER53 who's a member on here.

They look bang on but it's recommended that you use LED bulbs with them.

 

A few years ago there was a company in the USA that was selling replacement Bosch spec lens for the later type Corrado front fogs.

I think a few people from this Forum purchased a few, also possibly Edition38 members when it was active were obtaining those lens.

But something happened to the seller he started to keep funds and not send the items out, I can't remember now what the guys company was called, but he was selling from his website and EBay I think.

Think he got closed down or band from selling on Ebay, there's a thread/post about it all, somewhere on this Forum I believe.

 

 

Anyway good find if they're the Corrado lens, and Happy New Year Chris.

VXT and Sprinter53 are the only current sources of new replacement lenses as far as I'm aware - though I haven't seen either at first hand, so can't comment on the quality, but they both look decent , but probably won't take the heat of a H3 filament bulb without cracking.

 

If you search the web, there is plenty of info that suggests using various makes of Hella/Saab/Volvo/BMW or Rallye Design lamp units and removing the lenses and putting them into the original housings - often with mixed results. In fact I think the US seller just used Rallye Design lenses and lights.

 

It's a difficult one, and what's really needed is hardened/temepered glass with the same proportion as the originals. Note that in some countries you won't pass MOT (TuV in Germany) without type approved and stamped lenses.

I think the original lenses were hardened and tempered, but heat shock is heat shock, they all go eventually.

 

Anyone have any suggestions for good legal (ish) warm-white (i.e. unobtrusive) LEDs to replace them with?

Hi guys,

 

the replacement lenses from me and VX are heat treated.

I originally developed plastic lenses, but the new lenses are much better.

@Sprinter53 - will the new version of the lenses work with Halogen bulbs? Thanks.

I could be interested in a pair, as I have a spare set of housings with cracked lenses in the attic.
