Cool. Gives a unique look. I like the Vauxhall too. I've been looking. Haven't found anything yet except some expensive badges.

Vauxhall grill would be the same - badge and adapter for it are different. I've seen some brand new grills online.

I hope you realize you are blinding oncoming drivers with those bright fog lights. If you want the road illuminated better at night you need to get brighter headlight bulbs. Not only that fog lights are supposed to illuminate the road with low light output, that way the light doesn't reflect off the fog so you can see ahead of you.
People don't realize that fog lights are intended for situations where visibility is poor enough that you cannot see well enough to drive full speed. These lights are not for decoration; that's what stylized DRL is for. The fogs on my car have never been on.

I actually don't mind if fogs are bright though, IF they are only used in extreme visibility impairment. I think OEMs are somewhat nuetering fogs because they know people just drive around with them on all the time.

My opinion is that fog light light switches should be momentary switches. The lights recycle to off every startup, and must be activated manually.

Agreed. Idiots around here drive with them on all the time, thankfully they're useless on most cars. The last 3 cars I've had with fogs(including TourX) have required the switch to be activated every ignition cycle, which is good!

Regal Tour-X
I thought I'd get "all" LED lamps with the Driver Confidence Package option on my 2018 TourX. But the fog lamps are just standard GM bulbs. Found a replacement set of true LED fog lamps on Amazon that go in quickly and look great. I picked bright yellow, but they are also available in blue and clear. Select size option "H16 H11 H8"

This is the bulb I installed last year. Although I believe Yellow is thecway to go to see better in foggy conditions, I purchased the White, not to see, but to be seen in bad weather. I’ve had no problems with these bulbs since I installed them over a year ago.

First bulb difficult to install only because I had not figured out how. Second bulb very easy now that I knew how.

Easier if you drive front of car up on car ramp. Reach up, find bulb housing, twist housing and pull out of lens area. Note wires are very short. Using a drop light or flashlight, find the tab in the plastic housing, push small screwdriver into tab and pull old bulb out. Push new bulb into housing until it snaps into housing.
Replace housing into lens giving it a twist to lock into place. Simple. 😀

Well more modern vehicles are all about sensors, warnings, and messages. When something goes wrong on your car, you’ll often get some sort of notification of this on your dash. This could be a simple warning light illuminating, or an actual written message.

Nope, no errors with Allalights. HID would probably throw an error though.

I went with the below listed fog lights and you can see the difference they show to match the factory led headlights...as fog lights I find these lights useless no matter what globes are in them but so it matches the led light rather than looking a dull yellow I believe it matches well and is a must. Plus 1 month in so far and no canbus errors or issues at all.
