      Do you still have your factory sockets? Euro sockets dont have a running light. I always cut off one of the locking tabs on the socket so I could use the factory bulb socket. Line them up and you will see which one needs to be cut off.

      I wasn't aware there the euro fogs were any different and I didn't see anything about them being ecode in the listing. Am I missing something?

      Looks like they use the same p/n in all markets. The beam pattern is supposed to be flat, so lhd vs. rhd should make no difference either.

      100 bucks isnt bad for used oem fogs, if your car had dummies do you even have the wiring for fogs? the caps or bulb cover with the connector can be bought at the dealer for 20 bucks a piece if that's what you're looking for. you absolutely want oem covers because the aftermarket ones will melt.

      edit: nvm i see the bulb holders are missing from the turns which means your old ones will work, you may have to chop a tab off like someone else mentioned.
      COYS!!!
