Just fitted some fogs and side repeaters to my Mk3 and thought I'd share the results

The hardest part is getting the plastic screw type connectors out from the wheel arch liner. Some were rounded off so needed to be prized away, which was awkward with the wheel still fitted.

All the parts came from mx5parts.co.uk and came to about £250 for the fogs, switch and mounting bezels and £20 for the side repeaters. They currently have some ice blue fogs reduced in their clearance section that might suite your black car, however I didn't go for them as I don't think they'd look right on my red one: http://www.mx5parts.co.uk/lamps-genuine-mazda-blue-lenses-p-1017.html

is that the genuine mx5 repeatersor the budget ones looks good with the silver finish around the foggies.

They aren't genuine side repeaters, but at half the price they look the part. I bought some silver bulbs from ebay to avoid the fried egg look.
