Read this thread. It tells you what convertors + bulbs you will require to fit into M sports fog lights.


It will only cost you 10-20.

There was also DIY where somebody drilled M sports fog lights housing and fitted SE bulbs, but I would not recommend you.
Stick with OEM route.

I just cut the connectors off and fitted terminals instead.

Thanks a lot seen the link to the adapters, so I just buy these and the new bulbs and that's it? Just connect everything up?

Yes, that is correct. You will need to take your SE connectors off and connect these at the end of wires.
Fit HB4 bulbs into foglight housings and connect these connectors to those bulbs.
All done.

I looked at that one too, when I did my conversion.
But as it was coming from outside of UK, I discarded that idea.

Good for you to retain your OEM connector as well. (Just in case, if some day you decided to go back to SE bumper :P )
