Iíve not had interference with the stereo in my car and I have DAB as well.
Fog lights are H3.
Be careful which bulbs you buy if going LED not enough room to fit some of the bulbs on offer.
Also LED light not as good at punching through the fog as halogen bulbs.

No problem at all with the nighteye ones. Lots of space behind the cover, and so long as you read the instructions first, it really is a 1 minute job.

Arrived in 2 days and I am really happy with the performance so far.

Huge improvement over the original bulbs. Literally Night and Day

These are the ones I got:

Side Light LEDs = £4.95 (Ebay LINK)
Dipped Beam H7 - Nighteye LED Bulbs - 72w / 9000lm / 6500k = £21.29 (Ebay LINK)
Main Beam H1 - Nighteye LED Bulbs - 72w / 9000lm / 6500k = £20.99 (Ebay LINK)

Total cost was £47.23. Took about 10 minutes to fit all 6. Really happy with the results.

Gave the glass a polish at the same time. Super sexy.

Hope that helps buddy.

Also the fans can't be taken out or changed.

Usually the fanless version have a smaller heat sink. It also can be plugged into two positions so it can fit proprely inside the headlight case.

Regards.
I cant speak for all, but I had zero issues with the Nighteyes behind the covers.

Could be something to watch for in cheaper models perhaps?

Just found these Nighteye Fanless ones:

H7 Dipped beam.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NIGHTEYE-...torefresh=true

Could be worth a go?

Only used the fan style myself so cant say how they compare.

Look good. No radio interference and a good price too.

Yeah I've put those on my watch list as a possible replacement, I've also found some by Nov sight which are similar but shorter. The ridges on the inside of the offside headlight cover on my fr with the first ones.
