Has anybody changed there red fog light lens to a clear one?
I notice the opel adam has the reverse and fog on the opposite side, so i was thinking getting a opel reverse lens (to replace my fog) then using a red bulb and it would look loads better both being clear,as everytime i look at the rear of a adam it annoys me haha OCD by the way :/

Same! I have OCD, and in my opinion if one coloured light is one side of the car, it should match with the light on the other! If you buy the Opel light, you should post a photo of how it looks :)

Haha they so did like. However this means if you hold out you will be able to get it a bit cheaper than you originally thought? Just an idea.

Once i get the part number i think we can then get one direct from vauxhall, the parts desk told my bf they cant view opel parts without the part number. I think it will be cheaper then aswell as im using a broker for mine,x

According tohttp://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/regulation/11/made
No vehicle shall be fitted with a lamp which is capable of showing any light to the rear, other than a red light
It appears that it has to be a red light, doesn't state that it has to be a red lens or bulb.Alsohttp://www.motuk.co.uk/manual_130.htm
Method of Inspection</font>e.
shows light of the correct colour
Though I have no plans to try this and I would certainly have a quick chat to the local MOT man to verify

I had a imported mx5 a few years ago and that had a clear led fog screwed onto the bumper and that was fine so dont think it will be a problem really
