I changed my fogs out for the oem mini DRL. They are seriously good and make the car look so much newer than it is. The exact same fittings you would get with a 2017 car. 190 all in and easily the best mod I've added to the mini.


This is the kit.... it's gone up a bit in 6 months but it's so worth the money!

I fitted a pair of LED bulbs to my 2015 Cooper a few weeks ago and they give a nice white light - 2X H16 SAMSUNG 15W LED Sidelight Daytime Fog Light DRL PS19W 5202 Xenon White | eBay

As mentioned on another forum they do require a bit of a push to get them back in the housings - https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...placement.html

Tell me about Photobucket... I had to resurrect all my images using another host.

Anyway, here are the links to the xenon/led style of bulbs bit check the compatability before placing the order:

Main beam and side light

Fog lights
