Chinese ebay ones do the job just fine, and if they last 1 or 2 years, for the money who gives a shit?

I've had mine for about 2 years and they're rock solid to be fair and they're bright!

Hook them up with a relay to ignition and you're golden

Aren't they the pieces of shit that have a flashing mode, and you have to keep pressing a button to cycle through the different modes?
Apart from being illegal, they're shit.

Guaranteed to make your bike look worse and it’s not really that foggy. Still if your lights are shit and you do a bit of night driving they might help.

Re: Opinions; best Aux lamps/foglamps under €150

the only thing I would ask is please set them correctly (pointing down at the road in front of you).

Dont know about the rest of you but Im getting sick of riding towards bikes with these fitted at night. It bad enough with idiot cage drivers not dipping their main beam, but then you get bikes with these monstrosities fitted to them pointing directly into your eyes and of course they are wired to the dipped beam circuit so no way to dip them or turn them off. Mostly BMW bikes to be fair but still these lights should be fitted properly or not at all

Re: Opinions; best Aux lamps/foglamps under €150

I recently bought and fitted a pair of these. At 60 quid all in including handlebar switch, relay, full wiring loom and mounting brackets it's excellent value. They are quite bright so I have them angled down to avoid dazzling other road users. They have three modes - fully on, flashing, and alternate flashing (left then right). To activate either of the flashing modes you need to quickly switch them on, then off then on again. So in normal use where you simply switch them on the once you get standard mode every time. Happy days.
