Did this the other day after work.... only attempt if your brave.... the first time you drill a hole in your nice new shinny car  :'(  you hope you get all four of them in the right place.... then attack the inside of the hatch with a 25mm holesaw  :-\

The result, what do you think... ?









Will get some better pics when me & dan take the M2's on the ind estate for a photo sesh... if it ever
stops raining  :-[

Looks great, especially in black.
Don't think I could take a drill to my car, wayyy too scared of messing up.

Obviously nobody else does...  ???

Mazda 2 fogs expencive ? guess what.... Mazda RX8 use the same lamp unit... got a pair cheap off ebay..
bet there are a few more models that use the same base lamp module...
Fit them in a set of fog lamp brackets ( be careful which model as the sport front bumper uses
different bracket & bezel with the same lamp unit ) put the fog lamp bezel's in......

Pop out the blanking bezel.....


Cable is connected on the back to stop it dangling around....


Clip the new bezel in place.....


Take the lamp unit & fit it in the bracket......




You end up with a unit ready to fit to the back of the bumper....




Fit onto the locating pegs on the back of the bumper, screw in three screws to hold the
bracket to the back of the bumper.....




Now she looks like this....






Will post when I get the indicator stalk to make them work....   ::)
