Mine has a couple of plastic blanks where front fog lights would have gone if they had been fitted, I think you could make quite a good job of DRL's if you popped out the blanks and used them as a back plate for something fancy. I did try to get hold of a couple of OEM fogs to slot in and use as DRL's but couldn't find any.

Yes after market. I agree if they look horrible then for the cost they will go in the bin. Do not want to tart up a C5, I am not a boy racer or it's not a sports car but i do like to make things look different.

Russ, does your car have fogs built into the main headlamp assembly, or do you have these separately housed in the lower front skirt area? The reason I ask is that I saw a new combo fog/DRL kit that goes into the front fog recess and they were from osram I think. I'm off out for a few hours but will look them up when I get back and post the link for you. In the meantime if you PM me your VIN I'll know your exact model so I can check compatibility. :wink:

Russ - just done some checking - and these would of been ideal - they are new from OSRAM and would replace the existing fog lamps in the bumper. They act as both DRLs and Fogs - switching between the modes as needed. BUT... unfortunately they are only a direct replacement for the C5 on facelifted models from 2004 - 2008 after all that! :bigcry: Anyway, I'll link to the video, as it may be of interest to others with the following vehicles:



C4 11/2004 – 01/2011
C4 Picasso 11/2006 – 01/2013
C5 10/2004 – 03/2008
C6 09/2005 – 01/2011
C-Crosser 08/2007 – 2013
DS3 03/2010 –
DS4 05/2011 –
DS5 11/2011 –
Xsara Picasso 01/2004 – 09/2006
