Can anyone tell me whether early corrado fogs are compatable with late corrado's? Part of me thinks yes cos its vw here. Also is it just me or do early fogs have a different look to them? were the early fogs made of plastic and the later ones glass? im sure something is diff about them Suspect
I need to replace mine and was wondering as alot of fogs I come across are from early model rados, ta

late model fogs sit bitter in the bumper, they dont look wonky like the early ones. according to the corrado forum they wont fit unless you swap the whole front end study

The later fogs are mounted on a surround that holds the indicators. The fogs and the surround are deeper and bring the light sets out, more flush with the bumper. Its a easy job to convert early style to the later style but I'm not to sure how easy it is to put early fogs in a new style bumper though.

I have a set of late style ones if you need some?

Yeah they've got no chips or cracks. They have got a fair bit of light pitting on the glass though tbh, but its what you would expect as these were taken from a car of that had done 120k.

I do have a spare set of brand new after market fog light lenses as well. The pattern on the lens isn't quite the same as the original vw ones but they are a direct replacement.

I'll upload a picture of them on here so you can see if you want??

Here you go mate sorry for the delay in getting the pics up but I couldn't find my camera :s

The top 2 pics show the original VW rado fogs as you can see they dont have any cracks or chips but they do have some pitting on the glass
The bottom left pic shows the relplacent lens next to the original and the bottom right is a close up of the replacement lens

Mate, I would love those aftermarket lenses. How much were you thinking for them and where did you get them from. Now im wondering /thinking about searching for matching aftermarket indicators

I got them ages ago on fleabay I just want what I paid for them which was 40. If you want to search for them, the make of them is Rally who are based in Miami Florida i think. link to there site -->Rally Manufacturing but from doing a quick search it looks like they're not making them any more. scratch they don't do indicators either unfortunately.

ARZ tuning do crystal clear ones but I'm not too keen on these tbh I think you'd be better of just getting a new set of indicators from VAG

Thanks for the info and the search! Deal on 40! When and where do you want to do the cash for fogs?
