What did you do Wayne? Either getting rid of the car [:^)] or a new bumper! [:D]

thats the nature of the picture actually, so the difference can be seen.

Essex Escy... you should be OK with the Hella fogs mounted in the bumper at this time of year, but be careful when the tempature starts to increase..... as you know, these fogs block the intercooler feed. Have you modded the the light fixture to allow more air in?

On the V6 like Wayne has these will cause no problems, but I have heard many times not to put these on 1.8T cars. I think even Hella tell you not to put them on 1.8T's.

REVO 1.8T + Unproductive Intercooler = Turbo Limp Mode.... sorry to say it mate, I'm not trying to be negative, but be careful in the spring / summer time [:$]

thanks for the advice dude.....i had thought of that, but didnt know how how right i was if that makes sense......to be honest, i'm not fussed if i have to take them out in the middle of the year, as its the winter that they are more "useful".....they are so incompatible with the 1.8T that i've had to do modification o them to make them fit, as the rear of the lamp has a cap on it for the electrics, and that juts out and hits something on the right of the drivers side vent....so i needed to make it fit the other way round......i've got the fogs in the anni lights unplugged, but i could rewire them easily if needed.

am i safe to say then that i could be the only 1.8T with the lower hella fogs??

I think that would be your best option - after all why spend ?00s on Revo and then block the air flow to the intercooler? Spend the money on a TT vent mod instead.
