T-ROC SEL front fog lights

Post by CJD » Sat Mar 17, 2018 10:21 pm

Has anyone else noticed how VW have failed to upgrade the front fogs to LED from halogens which spoils the look of the car as the headlights & DRL’s are bright white & the fogs are a mismatched yellow light.
Not sure if anyone else has yet asked their dealer as to wether or not it is possible to change the bulbs for led or at least a bulb that gives a crisper whiter light ?

Have asked - and discussed here On forum - but have not receiver an anser As to the bulb spec.

I suspect the bulbs are H8, and that the reason for halogens is that LED’s are not yet approved for Road use.

As you say the Fog lights use a H8 pattern, but there's plenty aftermarket LED and CAN options to replace them.

Just been to my dealer this morning and very helpful parts manager told me "off the record" that best option they suggest is to replace bulbs with Osram Night Breaker in H8 fitting and runs same power and heat output so won't create any warranty issues so I've just ordered mine online will let you know how they are once fitted.

Been checking out the Osram night breakers h8’s
On amazon link...

On following the link above they say it does not fit a t-roc crossover 1.0 litre, but I wonder if it would fit a 1.5 T-roc Sel?

This is what I see, clicking the amazon product takes me to the right page.

Why would that be any different? I didn't think the engine size affected the light fittings.

Ah ok-a bit spooky that-as it worked going directly to the product for me initially. Now its just goes to amazon and 'indirectly shows a row of bulbs below the home page.
However not to worry-if anyone experiences the same as me, click the first package of bulbs in the row below on the link-otherwise you should get what Rob is seeing.-
Thanks Rob-Keep up the great work running the Forum-really interesting for us T-Roccers ;-)

Hi Steve, Sorry it meant to across as a different model-the 'Sel', and not the 1.5. I just was queerying it wondering if the next model up had different fittings (seen as how it was posted earlier 'off the record comment from a vw service person')
Apologies if i confused anyone.
