Now I'm pretty much forced to buy them. I got to the car wash today and when I went to wash the front end, my driver's side fog light was gone


Oh well, I guess I need to figure out the best HID's now.

No idea when it fell out, but it must have shattered, there is a piece of glass wedged between my tailpipes now.

Sounds like you need a new housing too.

Oh yeah, I've already contacted John at BVV to order a new lamp and mounting hardware. I'm just now getting ready to order the HID's.

Okay, I'm going to order the 55w 5000k fogs, do I need to add the wiring harness and the bulb out indicator thing?? Or can I just order the bulbs?

Nevermind, it looks like that only applies to the regular headlights, not the fogs. If I'm not correct, let me know.

Anyone know if this will be a direct replacement for the OEM??

I'm pretty sure there's a specific one for the "R," and it's different than the regular S60 one (more angled). I have 145,000 miles and looked into replacing mine, and I know it's def not cheap.

I think I just found a direct replacement for the R on myswedishparts.com for $150. I just need to verify the one I need to order. Here is the link.

That pricing looks more accurate. I was hunting for used ones on ebay a year or so ago and they were still $75 or more each.

I've put in an inquiry to make sure I'm ordering the correct one, I'll order it up when I get confirmation. I think this is the one I need, but I need to make sure. I guess the price is only $127, so that's nice.

Fog lamp Left - W/s60r 2004-07 - W/s60r 2004-07
04-07 $151.54 $127.29

Re: (Husker Z)

If you're still considering getting HID fogs, I'd be down for a set if a GB would make them cheaper!!
I'd have to flip through "R" Kelly's Adventures in R Lighting thread IOT determine exactly which ones we should consider; I will do that this evening. I am late for an appointment currently...

Re: (FORD420diesel)

I got my 2006 replacement lamp from this guy on the bay and it is nearly identical to stock for less than half the price. I had to change the electrical connector but that is simple. Just make sure you check if you need the clear lens or the opaque lens, mine had the opaque so I replaced them both. Much more light output with the clear lens.

Dang, I wish I had seen that prior to ordering the one I did, that's a great deal, plus with the new HID's I ordered, the clear would have been nice. Oh well
